Year 6 Magistrates Visit

Year 6 had an informative and thoroughly enjoyable trip to Beverley Magistrates Court. They had a chance to go in both the youth court and the adult court before going in the holding cells. They were given lots of interesting information from three magistrates about the role they play criminal court cases and many were surprised to find out that the age of criminal responsibility is 10 years old. The children all really enjoyed the visit and went on to produce some excellent information texts about the Magistrates Court in literacy.
