We hope you will find a lot of useful educational resources here. Please, give us feedback if you find that something is missing in the year plan. We do encourage you to add to this plan from your own teaching material and from other sites within NDLA as well as from external sites. To find further information and tips for using NDLA resources click on the Guide menu at the top of this page.

Holidays may vary around the country. Make sure you adjust the plan to your county.

To maintain an overview of the internet sources used and for easy revision, it is important for both students and teachers to make files of all the links to the material used, both from NDLA and other sources. Make sub-files, e.g. literature, grammar, English language, etc.

A lot of our resources may be used throughout the year. Some of those are listed at the beginning of the year plan.

We have listed the main competence aims assosciated with each topic, but all the subject material includes a variety of oral and written activities which together should cover all the competence aims in the curriculum.
