Book review Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick () I magine that all the worst predictions of global warming have come true. The polar ice caps have melted and the sea level has risen, slowly but inexorably, until most of low-lying eastern England is under water.

Norwich is an island and Ely Cathedral, which was originally built on a hill 68 feet. So working with books like the ones on the authors4oceans site is a genuinely positive step for change. That’s why I am pleased to be able to offer here their (recently updated) scheme of work for Floodland, for you to share with whichever primary teachers you.

Floodland is an extraordinary novel, set some time in the not too distant future in a land that has been reclaimed by the sea. Zoe last saw her father and her sick mother as they sailed away on the last boat from Norwich, leaving her to face the future alone/5(67).
