History – Year 11 “Escape Room” – 16 Nov 2017

November 2017


On Thursday 16th November, as part of the History department’s focus week a small group of year 11 students were sent back in time to an 18th century prison. Facing the death penalty for a crime they did not commit, they had to use their knowledge of their most recent GCSE unit of Crime and Punishment in Britain from 1000CE to the modern day, as well as their mental agility to piece together a wide variety of clues to enable them to find the code that would allow them to escape from their prison cell. Students were able to use their skills to effectively recall key events and details of their Crime & Punishment unit, providing them with a memorable and useful way of revising and recapping their learning.
