The Pendle Witches - Crime and Punishment through time

What we will be learning:


In this topic, it will focus upon a local history study - The Pendle Witch Trials. The children will gain an understanding of the religious, political and social aspects that once were prevalent in a local area. It will focus on a time beyond 1066, and consider the imapct of trials in Britain.


The children will then move onto exploring crime and punishment through these ages to make comparisons and draw contrasts; ready for their learning of the Saxons and Vikings within Year 5.
