Holes

This term we are studying 'Holes' by Louis Sachar.

 

The blurb.... Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck going back generations, so he's not too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Correctional Facility. Nor is he very surprised when he's told that his daily labour at the camp is to dig one hole each day, five feet wide by five feet deep, and report anything that he finds. The Warden claims that it is character-building, but this is a lie. Stanley must dig up the truth.

During an English lesson we hot-seated the main character of Holes - Stanley Yelnats. Here are some pictures of us working in our groups and there are also a couple of video clips of some willing volunteers.
