Year 8 English – Term 5: Holes

During lessons in Term 5, we will be studying the book ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar.

The book focuses on Stanley Yelnats who, at the age of 14 is sent to a juvenile imprisonment and disciplinary facility at Camp Green Lake for a crime he claims he did not commit. Once at the ‘lake’, Stanley embarks on period in his life that he will never forget. From the scary warden and daily hole digging to the deadly lizards and uncomfortable truths, Stanley has quite an experience.
