Under the Hawthorn Tree

We are reading a book called Under the hawthorn tree. It’s based on the famine time. Here’s a short synopsise of the story; there are three children called Eily, Michael and Peggy. Their dad went out working and their sister Bridget died. The mother went looking for the father, the children had to go to the workhouse. They ran away from the workhouse, Mary Kate found them and is looking after them now. We also did old fashioned letters about the novel, we got a piece of paper and cut it then we put tea bags on them to make them look old. They look great! Maybe you’ll see them.
