The Power of Dark 1 Week Lesson Plan KS 3 Teacher Resources

In an enthralling mix of magic and horror, Robin Jarvis transports us to the atmospheric North Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby where something dark is certainly brewing. To best friends Lil and Verne, it just seems like a particularly bad storm. But Cherry Cerise, the last of the Whitby witches, fears that ancient forces are at work, reviving the curse of a long lost magical artefact.

Exploring the world of legends and witchcraft, Jarvis provides a hauntingly good introduction to his Witching Legacy series gripping readers with thrilling action, betrayal and a feud that survived even beyond death. The Power of Dark is a brilliant opportunity for children 11 and up to understand the significance of historical context of the book alongside the magical fiction.
