In Ms. Kearns 5th class, we can been busy learning about the famine in Irish, History, English and Art. We are currently reading 'Under the Hawthorn Tree' which depicts the life and hardship endured by three young children during the famine. We used charcoal to draw a scene from the famine. Take a look at our masterpieces.
We are learning all about the Library at Aistear time . We have been sorting books into Fiction and Non- Fiction and have written our own mini-books about our family . Some of the children brought in their own favourite books to share them with the class .
