Pinpoint Whole Class Reading is a new series of teaching guides providing flexible and creative lessons for classic modern children’s books.
This book provides 30 starter, main and plenary activities for teaching Holes by Louis Sachar in Year 6 / P7. These can be used interchangeably over a half term or over a longer period. Activities use three levels where appropriate, showing how the content can be adapted for children who need more support or challenge.
Holes cleverly threads several stories together, involving the Wild West, an immigrant from Latvia and a boy at a juvenile detention centre. It introduces themes of bullying and building self-confidence, racism and discrimination, immigration, history and geography.
