Hi it’s Josh here to tell you about Holes.
Holes is about a kid who has bad luck and he in the wrong place all the time.
So he get’s sent to this camp because he got caught with a pair of famous shoes
that fell out of the sky. When he got to camp he realized it was not going to be fun and
games. He was told he had to dig a hole 5 feet deep and 5 feet wide in one day for 18 months.
I recommend this book because it’s full of adventure hope you read it thanks for reading.
In the book there are two main characters called Sarah Fincher and Ryan McCray. At the start Ryan was recapping (reveiwing) what happened the night when Sarah went to the Dredge. Sarah went to alone. The Dredge is a old machine that used to mine gold in the woods. sarah went with her camera and filmed someone above out of a window. She showed it to Ryan and he didn’t belive her. Later that day they both go. Ryan falls and shutters his leg. After his accident they both were banned from seeing each other. When they were banned they were still investigating, Ryan was writing in his journal and Sarah used her webcam to search things.
The book is a Horror/Mystery. It’s exciting because it has a mystery backround. There are four books to read and they are Skeleton Creek, Ghost In The Machine, Skeleton Creek The Crossbones and Skeleton Creek The Raven. I think you should read it.

Grade 6’s – Last term at a class meeting we started talking about transition. What are you most looking forward to about year seven? What are you worried about? What would you like to know more about? Do you have any questions, or things you’d like to ask and don’t want to ask in front of others?
Grade 5’s – What are you looking forward to in Grade 6? What are your hopes and fears? Do you have any questions? Are you interested in running for team captain and if so, why?

While you are working independently this morning, you may like to use this site to help you with remembering about angles.
Here are some handy tips for working with a protractor:
Angles are measured using a protractor. You can guess the rough size of an angle by looking to see if it’s acute or obtuse, but you’ll need a protractor for a precise measurement.
Here’s how to use a protractor to measure an angle:
- Line up the protractor so the ‘cross hair’ is exactly on the angle.
- Line up one of the lines with the 0 line on the protractor.
- See which numbers the angle comes between. If it is between 30 and 40, the angle must be thirty something degrees.
Count the small degrees up from 30. In this example, the angle is 35°.
When you’re done, you may like to give these two activities a go as well. The first game requires you to make the angles in order to make targets.
This second game, Roboidz, will take a long time to load but is worth the wait! You may like to open it in a new browser tab and complete another activity while you wait. Click on the picture below to launch the game.
Here is a game you can use to practise recognising angles. You will need to click on the image below to open the game, because it has some extremely irritating music that plays when you open the page. So long as you put the computer on mute it is a great game!
Remember to look at the compass guide at the top to know which direction you are hitting in.
