What Is The Law?

Overview

Watch a read-aloud version of the book ‘What is the Law?’, in which a hedgehog called Snippet finds out about the law. The book has been separated into four chapters for the video. At the end of each chapter, you can pause it to talk about what has been covered. Some suggested discussion areas can be found in the teacher notes.    By the end of the session, pupils should have a basic understanding of what the law is and how much it affects their lives. Kindly created by the author Liz Gifford to help children understand the law.
