11 Mar What’s happening in Year 6 – Week 3
Year 6 this week have been history detectives, trying to ascertain who Robert Peel was, as part of their history topic – “Crime and Punishment.”
Miss Bienias provided the class with no information about who Robert Peel was; they had to use sources of evidence to make inferences about the past, like true historians!
They came up with some excellent ideas, carefully analysing what they could see in photographs and paintings to build up their ideas and correctly coming to the conclusion that he was a politician, responsible for setting up the first police force.
The same police force, who we now know as London’s Metropolitan Police!
