This week in History we learned all about the Famine. We talked about the causes and effects of the famine, the workhouses and the famine ships. During our English lessons, the children then wrote letters to their loved ones back home after they had survived the journey to America, Canada, Australia or Britain. In Art we drew pictures of the Jeanie Johnston using Charcoal, we put a lot of detail and care into our art and the results spoke for themselves. In Music we listened to the “Fields of Athenry” and learned the meaning behind the song.
