Crime and Punishment in the Roman Era

Today in 6W we began our new theme of Crime and Punishment. We discussed what we meant by the terms ‘crime’ and ‘punishment’ before looking back at the Roman era. We learnt about some of the main crimes and the punishments for them, as well how the Romans influenced our judicial system today. We also learnt about the reasons for the harsh punishments that were given in the Roman era. We then acted out our own drama, depicting a Roman crime and appropriate punishment. We were certainly academically and creatively fit for life!
