A Home Learning Branch for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe


KS: Lower KS2

Year Group: Year 4

Author(s): C. S. Lewis

This is a Home Learning Branch for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  These branches are designed to support home learners to access literature-based learning using a selection of books we love from the Literary Curriculum.  They include purposeful writing suggestions, links to the wider curriculum so that texts can be used across other subjects, key questions as well as spelling or phonics investigations.

A Spelling Seed is available for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Spelling Seed Overview:


This is a five-session spelling seed for the book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis.  Below is the coverage from Appendix 1 of the National Curriculum 2014.

Spelling Seeds have been designed to complement the Literary Curriculum by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning.

Spelling Seeds work alongside the texts within the Literary Curriculum and, as such, will also reflect the suggested number of weeks spent on a text, as well.
