A visit from the Magistrates
Learning about Crime and criminal responsibility
The three year 6 classes have had separate visits from the Magistrates! Here, they have learnt what crime actually is, and what happens as a result of committing a crime. The children learnt about the Magistrates and Crown Courts before staging a court scene of their own! Some children took on the role of the defendants, the prosecutors and even the Magistrate judges. The other children became court illustrators and members of the jury. It was a fantastic experience for all involved!
