A whole English teaching sequence linked to the book Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick (Winner of the Branford Boase Award in 2001). Ideal for Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6 children.
There are 20 lessons planned in total , all with SMART Notebook screens, task sheets and header sheets to aid teaching and learning.
There are 101 SMART Notebook screens (in one file) for the teaching sequence and each lesson is clearly marked, along with details about which chapter should be read with each of the lessons.
(Update 22/10/2020 - In response to many requests, I have converted the SMART Notebook screens to Powerpoint, so there is also a 123 page Powerpoint presentation included for the teaching sequence.)
This planning includes lessons that will require the children to complete the following tasks:
- writing an informal letter
- writing a discussion text
- answering SATs style comprehension questions
- using a thesaurus
- writing a narrative
This book and planning link well with topic work on climate change, caring for the environment or any links to water. Even though the book is now 20 years old, it is still relevant to the concerns that are still important today about the dangers facing our planet, and will make them think and be exposed to some of these concerns.
It's good to leave some feedback.

Thank you so much - lots of quality resources and excellent ideas. I'm looking forward to teaching this with my mixed ability Y6 class.
This is a very comprehensive literacy sequence that contains everything you might need for a range of writing and comprehension. Really looking forward to using it after half term with my Yr5/6 class. Thank you!
Thank you for your kind words. I hope that you and your class enjoy Floodland after half-term.
Can't wait to use this scheme of work for my Y6 class. Is it possible to to have a powerpoint version of the SMART notebook planning as I am unable to access notebook using a google chromebook? Thank you.
Thanks for your kind review. I only use SMART personally when I teach but I'll look to convert this to Powerpoint over the coming half-term.
21/10/2020 Update - I have completed converting the SMART Notebook files so there are now Powerpoint screens for each lesson included as requested.
Great scheme of work linked to a fab book! The smart notebook screens which go alongside each lesson are so useful! Thank you!
I appreciate your kindness and I'm pleased to know that you have used a number of my schemes of work now, which I thank you for. Floodland is a great book and my class produced many great pieces of work from the planning which they really enjoyed; I hope that your own class also enjoy it.
