Floodland - Imagine that England is covered by water, and Norwich is an island 1

Our Power of Reading text for Au2 half-term is called Floodland.

 

Written by Marcus Sedgwick it tells the story of a girl called Zoe who survives the flooding but finds that her adventure is only just beginning.

 

Although Floodland is set in Norwich, it links to our Au2 project called Our Local Area as we will be looking at the physical geography of Hebden Bridge and building our understanding of why our town has been flooded on many occasions in recent years.
