She was further charged with a count of possessing an article in circumstances that gave rise to a reasonable suspicion that it was for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation, or instigation of an act of terrorism on August 22, 2020.
The girl, who is from Derbyshire, denied all of the charges and will face a four-day trial at Nottingham Youth Court on August 24.
Wearing a grey sweater, she sat sipping from a mug during Thursday’s hearing.
The Chief Magistrate, Paul Goldspring, remanded her into a local authority accommodation until her next appearance on July 15. (dpa/NAN)
