P7 Mr McGale Emigration and the Famine

15th Oct 2017

Our P7 pupils used maps to explore our sense of place, and looked at how places we have heard of today were also important places during the Irish Famine.

Google Earth allowed pupils to get a sense of scale of these journeys to England, America and Australia, and then they used atlases to focus on particular places, whilst learning the skills of indexing and grid referencing to quickly and efficiently locate these places.
