    1. I think the children are listening to the bear. Their facial expressions makes them seem confused and curious. I think this is because they are talking to a bear and you don’t see many talking bears.

    2. I think that the children have met each other and are talking about what they have been doing. They look happy and relaxed so I think they are glad to see each other and be together.


    1. Lucy was interested in the wardrobe when she opened it she saw fur coats and went inside as she liked the look and feel of them.

    2. When she found Narnia I think Lucy felt surprised, amazed, frightened and confused because its a place she has never been before.

    3. Yes Lucy did make a sound because there was a ‘crunch crunch’ sound.

    4. No Lucy was not afraid of the fawn because she stayed with him, spoke to him and went to his house.


    1. False – as Lucy walked over the snow there was a ‘crunch crunch’ sound.

    2. False – as he had a pleasant little face and curly hair.

    3.True – He said “if only I had worked harder T geography when I was a little fawn I should know about these strange countries”.

    4. True -as they walked together in the woods known each other all their lives.
