Narnia activities: Year 3

21 Oct

When I was covering for a teacher in Year 3 for 5 weeks I really wanted to see if the children were into Narnia (written by C.S.Lewis). When I was a young child my mother read the whole series to me and when I was in Year 7 the best part of the day for me was when the teacher pulled out the big Narnia book, turned to the page we were up to and started to read! I loved it. As a mother I read all the stories to my two boys and grew that love of all things Narnia in them as well. I was chatting to my son the other day over coffee and he remarked that he felt that there was no better way to introduce God and what Jesus has done for us on the cross! I agreed! It is so true because as the story develops with Lucy meeting Aslan your heart instinctively knows this has to be God! If you are a Christian it strikes a chord in your heart!
In the class we started with The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and I covered the walls with posters from the scenes found in the movies.

This is the book I read from and I used a few other books as well




































I searched the internet and found some wonderful activities that some kind people had shared and put together a booklet for each child to keep. They were so pleased! The favourite page was the one where they were asked to create their own map of an imaginary world! This was the front cover.










This was a punctuation page!










This was the favourite page ‘Create your own imaginary world, with symbols on your map!’










I also found a game which I laminated and this was hugely popular! It was in this book.












When we had time in class we watched the whole of The lion the Witch and the Wardrobe as well as The Voyage of the Dawn Treader!
