Good morning 5.2 😊
It was great to see so many of you last week at the joint Zoom with 5.1/5.2! I really enjoyed hearing how you have been and learning of some of the positives about your time at home. Your task for this week is below. Please email me, Maxine or Najeeb if you need any help.
Have a great day!
Good Morning 5.2 – I hope you and your families are well?

Good morning 5.2!
Please find some more tasks focused on Holes below. Read the tasks and send me an email with your answers. If you need help, please ask!
Read the short extract from Holes where Stanley is introduced to some of the other boys at Camp Green Lake:
“That’s Alan,” said Mr. Pendanski.
“My name’s not Alan,” the boy said. “It’s Squid. And that’s X-Ray.”
“Hey,” said X-Ray. He smiled and shook Stanley’s hand. He wore glasses, but they were so dirty that Stanley wondered how he could see out of them.
Mr. Pendanski told Alan to go to the Rec Hall and bring the other boys to meet Stanley. Then he led him inside the tent.
There were seven cots, each one less than two feet from the one next to it.
“Which was Lewis’s cot?” Mr. Pendanski asked.
“Barf Bag slept here,” said X-Ray, kicking at one of the beds.
“All right, Stanley, that’ll be yours,” said Mr. Pendanski.
Stanley looked at the cot and nodded. He wasn’t particularly thrilled about sleeping in the same cot that had been used by somebody named Barf Bag.
Come up with a nickname for yourself (you may already have one) and try to explain why it is appropriate/ what it tells others about you.
Do you think Stanley feels at home at Camp Green Lake? Please explain your ideas.
Think of a place where you feel at home/ comfortable and try to explain why it is a place of comfort to you.
