Y4H mess with CS Lewis's classic!

In our English lessons this term we have been reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by CS Lewis as a class and taking inspiration in our own literacy work. Yesterday (17th March) 2014 we finished the story and used drama to investigate it in more depth. In fact we added more characters and explore how this might affect the characters and plot.

  • A new evil villain.
  • Someone from the real world.
  • A monster that fights for the White Witch. 
  • A wizard with powerful magic. 
  • Aslan’s lion brother/sister.
