Term 4: Fantasy and Adventure

Fantasy and Adventure


For Term 4, our TA storytime theme will be Fanstasy and Adventure. These books aim to stimulate creativity, expand vocabulary and allow the children to explore worlds beyond the realm of reality. Reading about these themes also help the children to be exposed to stressful or sad situations and learn from the emotional reactions of the characters.

'Even the smallest person can change the course of history.'

- J.R.R. Tolkein, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
