In the dark depth of WW2, with no end in sight, Dutch people in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands find themselves fighting their own war - the war against famine, enslavement and arrest. Edda, a teenage girl with a lion heart, finds herself doing anything she can to help the Dutch resistance fight back against their oppressors.
We have written a six-week English scheme of work for Upper Key Stage 2 to follow Edda’s journey fraught with peril and hardship. During the six weeks, your class will be focusing on grammar techniques: apostrophes for possession, relative clauses, embedded clauses, colons, semicolons, conjunctive adverbs, adverbials of time and place, subordinating conjunctions and integrated speech. Our grammar learning opportunities feed directly into the three extended pieces of writing your class will create throughout the unit: a non-chronological report, a diary entry recount and a predictive narrative. Like all of our schemes, we write with two things in mind: outstanding lessons based around a high-quality text and teachers’ well-being. Every single resource is included for you: lesson plans, WAGOLLs, differentiated activities, teaching videos, knowledge organisers, word mats and even our very own hand-drawn images. Everything is completely editable so, if you should need to, you can tailor make the material to suit the needs of every single learner in your class.

We have also written an eight-week ‘Resist’ scheme of work which includes an extra two weeks of learning based around biography writing. The eight-week scheme can be found here.
