A Long Walk to Water – Year 5JC

Throughout Reading Groups this term, a number of students from 5JC have had the opportunity to read a novel called, ‘A Long Walk to Water’ by Linda Sue Park. This book is based on a true story, where part of the story is centred around a girl in Sudan in 2008 and the other, about a boy in Sudan in 1985. They endure a range of hardships including loneliness, exhaustion and survival.

Students were able to find the parallels between both alternating stories in the book, as well as finding comparisons between their lives.

5JC Students- “We absolutely loved this book and would recommend it for students above Year 4”.

Take a look at some of the work we completed, based on this book.
