A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: LKS2 / UKS2, Lower KS2, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 4

Author(s): C S Lewis

Main Outcomes:

Narrative set in another world, a poem about a sweet that bewitches a main character, an imaginary conversation between two characters and writing in role

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a four-week sequence for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by CS Lewis in which children explore the idea that a character can change over time. Children will develop the skills of prediction including evidencing from the text. They will write a poem about a sweet that bewitches a main character, an imaginary conversation between 2 characters and write in role. The planning sequence includes exemplified grammar and spelling activities throughout. Drama techniques such as hot-seating and thought-tapping are used to support understanding and to develop writing. Please note that although this text can be read as an allegory for Christianity and the belief that Christ saves the world from sin and darkness, this has not been referenced in the sequence. Children may need an explanation for ‘Daughter of Eve’ and ‘Son of Adam’. Additionally, as the text was written in 1950, there are some words that are not regularly used today and these may need defining along the way.  Links can also be made to World War 2 (WW2) and evacuees.
