Victorian Child Prisoners

Suitable for KS2

Discover Victorian prison life for inmates as young as seven. Pupils will investigate the prison system through the historic buildings, actual case studies using mug shot photos and newspaper reports, object handling and role play.
This workshop can be part of a whole day Citizenship programme. Re-enact Victorian children on trial with the Museum of Oxford and then explore the consequences at Oxford Castle Unlocked.
