Mock Trial

On Monday, Year 6 were visited by Mr Jeff McNally and Dr Rennie Thompson, who are both members of The Magistrate's Association. They talked to the children about the role of a magistrate, what a court room looks like and how it runs. The children were asked to think about a number of different offences and rank them in order of "most serious" to "least serious" before listening to a prosecutions argument in regards to a fictional theft. The children really enjoyed the session and look forward to taking part in Cirencester's Mock Trial competition in March.
