If we had to define Fairy Tales, Merriam-Webster would give us hints by saying that it as “a story (as for children) involving fantastic forces and beings (as fairies, wizards, and goblins) which usually lead to a happy ending”.
Is there anything else about Fairy Tales that allows us to wonder and be attracted by the fantastical worlds they create?
What is there, lurking in the twilight of darkness, that actually make us BELIEVE?
John Lennon once said “I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”.
Last year, as their final project for the English subject, some students from the IB Language and Literature Module, engaged in the creation of Fairy Tales of their own, to enchant younger audiences. They chose students from Junior School as theirtarget readers ande came up with tales of Kings and Queens, Warlocks and Witches, talking animals and mythical creatures!
Excellent innitiative guys! Junior students will be delighted to enjoy your stories!
