Rules and Laws – British Values

As part of British Values Week, Mrs Wright and Mrs Boardman joined forces to teach Year 5 about Rules and Laws in our country. We discussed why we have laws and looked at some of the different laws that have been passed in our country to date. We also looked at the consequences of not following these laws and the different types of courts that look at different cases to do with civil and criminal law. The children then created their own list of laws deciding which were the most important to them. It was very interesting hearing the children’s ideas such as no violence, no smoking, no animal cruelty, no driving with mobile phones, no harassment and no using offensive language to name a few! Some good debates and ideas. Well done Year 5!
