Year 3 Debate Pirate Punishment

Dolphin Class had lots of fun this afternoon learning about different pirate punishments!

The class carried out a debate to compare the 18th Century punishments to those of the 21st Century. Volunteer 'culprits' were tried in front of our class 'jury' for crimes such as stealing from the ship's galley or simply being an elderly slave, unable to carry out their chores.

The children maturely and effectively debated whether the culprit should be sentenced to the pirate punishment or the modern day punishment.
