Guilty or Not-Guilty?

Year 6 were lucky enough to take part in an enjoyable and informative ‘Justice’ workshop today. A visitor from the Coventry Magistrates court came and spoke to them about their job as a magistrate and introduced the children to a dilemma through roleplay. Roles such as magistrates, defence, prosecutor, legal adviser and usher were given out and the children took on different roles, following a script. Essentially, the children had to use all of the information gathered to decide if the suspect was guilty or not and if so, what an appropriate consequence would be. Ask them what their verdict was and how they came to that conclusion.
