Pupils from Northbury Primary School have been exploring the Tower of London to learn about crime and punishment in history.

Yesterday (Tues), 60 youngsters from Year 6 made the trip from Northbury Close, Barking, to the ancient castle, and today another 60 are looking at the crown jewels and taking part in workshops.

Assistant headteacher Kulvinder Johal explained: “Lots of the children didn’t know where the Tower was or what it looked like, and I thought they should see it.

“They may read about it but this makes it real for them.”

Ms Johal said that the youngsters weren’t phased by the tales of gore told at the tower, but added: “We have been to the Traitors’ Gate and one of the children said she would much rather have a time-out.”
