The case of the missing packed lunch

Posted on: 09 May 2019 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 6, Year 5

The case of the missing packed lunch

On Friday 3rd May, pupils in Years 5 and 6 participated in a "mock trial" kindly organised by Mrs Moylan-Jones. With the help of some of Mrs Moylan-Jones' law students, a trial was conducted with the pupils taking many different roles, including Defendant, Complainant, Counsel for Prosecution and Defence, witnesses and members of the jury.

The case of the missing lunch was heard, and the jury then took part in a lively debate about whether or not they could unanimously agree that the Defendant was innocent or guilty. They were reminded to make sure that they were judging on the evidence of the witnesses only and not their own suppositions.

After some considerable debate, a majority verdict of guilty was reached, but Mrs Moylan-Jones (in the role of the judge) was lenient in her sentencing; the Defendant, played by Daniel, was required to do some community service for Mrs Evans, and pay reparations of £1 a week from his pocket money.

The children thoroughly enjoyed playing their parts - especially those who got to wear gowns and wigs - and learned much to support recent PSHE work on rights and responsibilities, and how our legal system works.
