Louis Sachar comes to Paddox!
I know what you're thinking - Louis Sachar looks like a child in Year 5 - who knew?!
Having watched Holes, to understand the plot, learn about the characters and find out about Texas we then did some work summarising the story - in 60 seconds, 30 seconds, 20 words and then 10 words. We also summarised the story in freeze-frames, as a comic strip and as a role-play with a 2min limit.
We then started to think about questions we would like to ask the author, Louis Sachar, if we could. Different children then became Louis Sachar to answer questions about the choices he made like 'why didn't Zero talk at the start?' and 'why was it set in Texas?'
We have also had some fantastic homework on Texas, including model rodeos and space centres - so thank you once again for your hard work!
