During the afternoon of our 1st day back after the Christmas holidays, we went back in time to Victorian Britain. We experienced what life would have been like in a Victorian classroom (Mr Robins was horrible to us), what it was like to live and work inside a Workhouse and what happened in a Victorian Courtroom.
We weren't very impressed with the gruel or the punishments that were given out in court and most of us decided we are grateful we live in 2018.
Fagin has been arrested and is to stand trial.
Our task was to decide which side we stood on the matter - release him or send him to jail. We looked at techniques that can be used in giving balanced arguments that state both sides of the argument, followed by a final conclusion. We had very strong views on the subject and we hope these come through in our writing as you read the examples below.
