Teaching Narnia (PDF Download)

A cross-curricular classroom and assembly resource for RE teachers Olivia Warburton £6.99

Drawing on C.S. Lewis's classic series, Teaching Narnia provides a wealth of creative and interactive ideas for use in the classroom and in collective worship. The Narnia books are an important part of Christian and literary heritage in the UK, with teaching applications beyond RE and Literacy to PSHE and Citizenship and a number of other curriculum areas. They help children to explore and develop their worldview, tackling big questions such as: What is really real?, How do we see the world?, Who is in charge of the world?, Is God really good?, Does he exist at all?, What happens after death?, How do we know what is right and wrong? and What can we learn from history?
