The Irish Famine - 'Under the Hawthorn Tree'

April 04, 2017

P7 have been learning all about the Irish famine through ‘World Around Us’ and by reading their class novel ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ in Literacy. To enrich their experience and understanding of this topic P7 recently visited Dungannon Library where they did Famine research. They followed this with a visit to Ranfurly House in Dungannon. Here they got some first hand experience as to what life would have been like in a workhouse. This was a really enjoyable day for all.
