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!

Chris Priestly Visit

We were delighted to welcome the author, Chris Priestley, to work with Years 5 & 6. He talked about his life as an author and illustrator, and showed the children how to ‘characterise’ a drawing. We then had a go at drawing ourselves as pirates. Huge thanks to Kenilworth Books and Bloomsbury Children’s Books for bringing Chris to our school for the afternoon.
