READ ALOUD to your tutor

First paragraph in Chapter 6

“I wish the Macready would hurry up and take all these people away,” said Susan presently, “I’m getting horribly cramped.” 

Last page in Chapter 6

“If it comes to that, which IS the right side? How do we know that the Fauns are in the right and the Queen (yes, I know we’ve been told she’s a witch) is in the wrong? We don’t really know anything about either.”
“The Faun saved Lucy.”
“He SAID he did. But how do we know? And there’s another thing too. Has anyone the least idea of the way home from here?”
“Great Scott!” said Peter, “I hadn’t thought of that.”
“And no chance of dinner either,” said Edmund. 

DISCUSS with your Tutor

  1. What was Susan’s “sensible plan” and why did Susan say “I am sure nobody would mind…”? 
  2. Look up the word “foreshadow.”  In this sentence, what do you think the phrase “looked more like royal robes” could foreshadow? “The coats were rather too big for them so that they came down to their heels and looked more like royal robes…”
  3. Instead of admitting he had lied about not being in the land of Narnia with Lucy, what did Edmund say to himself?  How is Edmund’s attitude adding to his sin of lying?
  4. When the children arrived at Mr. Tumnus’ cave, what terrible surprise did they find?
  5. What was the key information on the piece of paper? 
  6. How did Lucy describe the queen? 
  7. Why did Lucy say they “must try to rescue” the poor faun? 
  8. What happened while “they were still wondering what to do next”? 
  9. How were they guided?

Do you know the difference between a white lie and the big lie? Why is it wrong to tell a lie? Why do some people think it is okay to tell a”a white lie”? What can make you decide to tell the truth?

“Speak the truth to each other; do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the Lord.
Zechariah 8:16-17
