Year 3

Year 4


SKU: H34IL402002

Children first learn about the effects of the Industrial Revolution on the population of, and crime levels in, towns and cities, and find out what prisons were like during this time. They are then introduced to Elizabeth Fry, and learn how her charity work led to the improved treatment of prisoners. In their independent activities, children further explore the causes and effects of Elizabeth’s actions. Alternatively, they are challenged to create a re-enactment of Elizabeth’s visit to Newgate Prison.
