Mock Trial

This week, year 6 had a special visit from Coventry Magistrates Court. They learnt all about crime and punishment and what happens in the court. The children found it both fun and informative. A particular highlight was the trial re-enactment, in which the students took on roles within the court, including jury members, witnesses and legal advisors. It appears we have several budding actors in our midst!

Anti Bullying Week Begins

Reception learned that being unkind leaves a mark and changes you forever!

We had a piece of smooth paper and said unkind things to it. With each unkind comment, the paper was bent or ripped, meaning it could never be returned to the beautiful piece of paper it once was.

We were also unkind to an apple then looked inside to see the effect it had. We were shocked to see that the apple we were mean to, was bruised and squishy inside. We didn’t want this happening to anyone we know, so we decided we must always be kind, using thoughtful words and nice hands, so feelings inside are not hurt!
