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 White Witch seems nice at first, but she tempts Edmund with some sweets, and then she tricks him into doing something bad. This bad thing hurts a lot of others, and eventually it hurts Edmund too.
Doing bad things sometimes feels good at first, but it almost always ends up with people getting hurt. And sometimes we get hurt too.
When we realise that we’ve done or said something bad, it’s important to ‘turn away’ from the bad thing, and to say sorry.
This activity invites pupils to think of something bad that they might have done or said- something that they regret – and then, if they want to, to use the sand trays as a way of ‘saying sorry’.
This activity was created by a BeSpace team based in Abingdon.
