We are continuing with writing the guides about how to survive at Camp Green Lake. 


It is time to read more of the story - what will happen next?

The rest of Chapter Seven is below:

Holes - Chapter Seven (the last bits)

Today we will be continuing to write our guides for survival at CGL. Today we will be thinking about the next few sections including the section on digging holes.

In this section, you want to make sure you have included the following rules:

  • Dig a hole everyday - including Saturday and Sunday.
  • The hole must be 5ft in every direction.
  • Your shovel is your measuring stick.
  • Don't use X-Ray's shovel.
  • If you find anything interesting, report it to the warder - you might get the rest of the day off!

Here is an example of a section written about digging holes to help you:

Dig, dig, digging holes

You have been sent to Camp Green Lake to build character; Apparently, that means digging holes. Unfortunately, you are expected to dig a hole each day (including Saturday and Sunday). It is essential that your hole measures five feet – in every direction. Beware: Do not use X-Ray’s shovel. According to the children here, X-Ray has a specific shovel which is shorter than the others. Touch it and pay the price.

Task: Write the next sections for your leaflet about digging holes and daily life.

Starter: Name as many different books as you can in one minute. Set a timer and off you go!





The Bible includes poetry, legal documents, songs, letters, eyewitness accounts, biography, historical documents and advice literature. These may be categorised into five different types of books written in different genres.

Historical books: these books give an account of special events in the life of the Jewish people. They are not history as we know today, but a record of God leading his people through episodes and characters e.g. 2 Samuel 2, David is made king of Judah.

Poems and hymns: these could be a prayer as a thanksgiving or in praise of God. They were used at daily services in the Temple and synagogue, and today by Jewish people and Christians in their worship e.g. Psalm 117 Praise the Lord all you nations.

Wise sayings: these are short and easy-to-remember sayings, used by people in their everyday lives e.g. Proverbs 6: 6-11 Learn from the ant.

Good News: the Gospels. They are not a biography of Jesus, but record the memories about Jesus and of those whose lives were changed through contact with him e.g. Matthew 18: 1-5. Jesus welcomes children.

Letters: Paul was a prolific letter writer. He wrote letters to many of the early Christian communities before, and sometimes after, he visited them. He wrote to explain his understanding of the Christian faith and its practical implications for the lives of Christians.

The Books known to Christians as the ‘Old Testament’ are the ‘Hebrew Scriptures’ for Jewish people. Jesus was a Jew and would have been familiar with those Scriptures. ‘Scriptures’ means ‘writings’.


Surely, God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.  The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.  (Isaiah 12:2)



The Bible contains different styles of writing. The New Testament contains lots of letters.

The Acts of the Apostles is the story of the beginning of the Christian community, the Church – how it began among the Jewish people and went on to become a faith for the whole world.

Good News about him. It tells of the joys and difficulties that the early Christian community encountered and how they overcame them.

Revelation, the last book in the Bible was written at a time when Christians were being persecuted because of their faith in Jesus. It gave its readers hope and encouragement during difficult times and urged them to remain faithful.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)


Task: Explain the kinds of books in the Bible and use the scripture from the New Testament (Isaiah 12:2) and Old Testament (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). Write a paragraph about what the scripture means to you in your daily life.

Challenge: Explain how the scripture shapes the lives of Christians.
