We have been learning about the Great Irish Famine. We are reading the novel "Wildflower Girl" by Marita Conlon-McKenna have read about "An Gorta Mór" in our Gaeilge lessons and have listened to the Dubliner's version of the song "Skibbereen". We have looked at the topic from an Historical point of view and we have drawn images of the Famine in Charcoal inspired by our learning. We will continue to work on the Famine, doing some Drama on the topic, and learning about the causes of Famine around the world in our Geography and Science lessons. We are enjoying learning about such an important event in our Irish History and appreciate how different our own lives are now in comparison to that of our fore-fathers.
