Royal Courts of Justice
Organised by Lou
Day long trip to the Royal Courts of Justice and the Museum of London with a focus on suffragettes:
“This is an exciting new two-part study day which gives students the opportunity to visit both the Museum of London and the Royal Courts of Justice.
Spend time at the Museum of London investigating one of the UK’s largest collections relating to the Suffragette movement
Develop source analysis skills through the investigation of original printed ephemera from our archives.
Walk from the Museum of London to the Royal Courts of Justice (no more than 20 minutes on foot) past icons of the London landscape such as St Paul’s, the Old Bailey and Fleet Street.
At the Royal Courts of Justice, students will enact a mock trial in a working courtroom, based on a real Suffragette’s case. This engaging session will develop critical thinking skills as students take on the roles of judge, jury, barristers, witnesses and defendant, and explore the motives behind the Suffragette’s actions, determine their guilt and decide their sentence.
This session links to: History and Citizenship”
The morning session is at the Museum of London, which is a great museum in it’s own right (and where you might consider looking around with any younger/non-participating siblings). There is an hour for lunch (during which time, you must make the 20min walk to the Royal Courts of Justice) and then the afternoon session is at the Royal Courts of Justice. The Royal Courts of Justice houses both the High Court and the Court of Appeal for England and Wales and is a fascinating building. Our Mock Trial will take place in a real courtroom.
You must attend BOTH the morning and afternoon sessions.
There is some pre-visit material to study before the trip and court roles have been allocated. Only juror roles remain (please see below for further details).
This is pitched at KS3 (11-14yrs), however older children are welcome to book onto this. Exceptionally – mature children aged 10 1/2 (in yr6) if they are able to concentrate for both sessions.
No younger children/siblings.
The price is £7.50 per child.
Your child/ren must be able to go in unaccompanied.
THERE ARE NO ADULT SPACES LEFT.
There is a strict limit on adult spaces (you can register your interest for one when you book but you are not guaranteed one, so please only book if your child is able to go in unaccompanied) This is due to the capacity of the court room.
STRICTLY NO PHOTOGRAPHY IS PERMITTED IN THE ROYAL COURTS OF JUSTICE COURTROOMS.
(Just put “adult” or “parent” etc…)
