Year 6's visit from the Magistrates
This year, the role play was about Cyberbullying. A young lad was in court accused of sending threatening messages to another boy on his phone. We heard the legal arguments from both sides and the class was given the opportunity to decide if the defendant was guilty or not guilty. The deciding panel left the classroom to discuss it and came up with a guilty verdict.
Before the role play, the magistrates explained how a court worked and the roles of the people who work in one. The children were very interested in learning about them and, for example, the role of the usher who gave instructions in court. They also learned about the consequences that can be given for breaking the law, illegal drugs and how e-scooters are illegal on pavements and roads.
Year 6 really enjoyed this experience.
