A Guide to the Law

During Feeling Good Week, Mrs Mackintosh came into school to spend the afternoon with the Year 6 children from both 5/6 Classes.

The children took on roles to see a court case in action.  One of our actors had stolen an item from a local shop.  We then had witnesses, a police officer, the child's mother, a court clerk, evidence from the prosecution and defence.

After lots of discussion in groups, the children had to decide whether they could find the defendant innocent or guilty.  This lead to some very interesting debate and the children had a fascinating insight into how our legal system works.
