KS3 Bookclub – The Hobbit & Wonder
For use as a group discussion, as points to consider with your child/ren or on your own. The main themes running through this compare and contrast session are journeys, growing up and reaching your full potential.
This proved to be a really, really, really long session, so we never got round to the activities – turns out, 12 year olds can talk about The Hobbit for hours if you ask questions and let them run with it. They particularly enjoyed discussing the morality of Bilbo, with many interesting responses coming back.
