Year 6 Magistrate visit
On Thursday 21st April, Mrs Terry, a local Magistrate visited Year 6 and told them all about her role as a magistrate. We learnt about the two types of court: a Magistrates Court and a Crown Court and what types of offences each dealt with. Mrs Terry also told us about the different punishments that can be given by a Magistrate’s Court such as fines, community service or up to 12 months’ imprisonment, depending on the seriousness of the crime committed. The talk was very interesting and informative. We all learnt a lot about how the Courts work in England. We are very thankful to Mrs Terry for giving up her time to visit us.
