  2. Citizenship: Children investigate the roles of the prosecution, defence, judge and jury in a criminal court, leading to a role play of a mock criminal trial
  3. Philosophy: Through an examination of guilt and moral responsibility, children are encouraged to investigate whether Hamlet is really liable for the murder of Polonius
