  • Questions to students: What sentences are available to Magistrates and Judges? On your wipe sheets, can you list at least two sentences Judges may pass? Why do you think Judges consider what they are trying to achieve? What do you think the Judge might look at when deciding the sentence he/she is giving to an offender?
  • Can you name any sentences? Have a think to any stories you may have heard on the news and list at least one sentence on your mini wipe board. Ok, hands up if you wrote 1 sentence, hands up if you wrote 2, hands up if you wrote 3. Fantastic!! Right everyone, boards in the air lets see what we’ve got !!
  • Think about the sentences we have just looked at and have a think about why there are different sentences to choose from. Each one attempts to do a different job depending on the crime committed, so if someone is convicted of murder what sentence would you expect them to receive? Custodial, brilliant, why do you think they receive a custodial sentence? To punish them, fantastic, that is just one aim of sentencing.
