Learning about letter of the law at Millbrook Primary School

PUPILS from Millbrook Primary School learned all about the letter of the law and the justice system.
Year five and six children took part in a workshop put on by staff from the visiting National Justice Museum.

The school hall was transformed into a courtroom as four areas were covered: the dock, witness box, lawyers bench and jury box.
Teacher Robert Kay said: “There was positive feedback from the children as they learned about the justice system and how systems are in place to protect us.
“They were shocked, though, when they learned they could go to prison at the age of 10.”

Robert added that previously the local Police Community Support Officer had visited the school as they had learned about citizenship, something which is also touched upon in the national curriculum.
Julie Knight, from the National Justice Museum, said: “It is about getting children to know their rights and understand the law and how to live as law-abiding citizens.
“It is our first visit to Millbrook Primary and we received very positive feedback from the children.”
