English in Holly Class

In English, we will be reading a new book called Blue John by Berlie Doherty. Take a look at the "blurb" from the back cover to get a taste of this magical story!


"The icy purple heart of a glacier

The hot gold rays of the sun

A child made from light and from darkness..."

"The Queen of Darkness lives in the shadow of the mountain Mam Tor with her child, Blue John. Blue John is forbidden to leave his mother's side, but when a singing, dancing girl comes to the caves, Blue John must make a choice between darkness and light."
