Through four scenes from the narrative of The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, students are encouraged to reflect on hope, instances that make a better world, their identity and uniqueness, and learn to be sorry for their wrongs. This activity was created by a BeSpace team based in Abingdon.

This is part of an activity series based on C.S.Lewis’ Narnia tales. When Edmund follows his sister, Lucy, through the wardrobe and into Narnia, he meets someone called the White Witch. The Witch tempts Edmund with sweets and then tricks him into doing something terrible. We are fragile, and sometimes we all do and say bad things.

  • Is there something that you’ve done or said recently that you regret?
  • In a quiet moment, think about the thing that you regret.
  • Write the word ‘sorry’ into the sand.
  • When you’ve done that, you can brush it away again as a way of saying or praying that you’ll try not to do that thing again.
