Year 7 Under the Hawthorn Tree Hot Seating

25th Nov 2022

In class we have been reading the novel ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ as part of our World Around Us topic. Children have been fascinated reading of the journey of three siblings, Eily, Michael and Peggy, in their quest to survive life in famine stricken Ireland without their mother and father. Children created questions they would like to ask the three siblings and then took on the role of the characters to answer these questions in a ‘hot-seating’ activity. Take a look at the video to see the children in action.
