Rochdale Pioneers Museum 22.06.23, by Miss Healey

Date: 22nd Jun 2023 @ 12:26pm

Today we walked in the BEAUTIFUL sunshine to Toad Lane to find out all about how the co-operative movement began in our town of Rochdale. We dressed up, played games, found out loads of information and even learnt about how they used to put awful things in shop food to bulk it out so they didn't have to give people as much! Horrible! We were very glad to learn Rochdale was the unique town to decide enough was enough and created substatially better living conditions based on equality, education and mutual respect! There are co-operatives all over the world now and it started with our little town.

4J visits Orsdall Hall, by Mr Jolly

Date: 15th Jun 2023 @ 4:19pm

The day was centred around rich vs poor Tudor life.

We all started in the hall where a banquet was being served and the children acted out different roles.

We split into two groups: one with Lady Catherine, a rich lady living at the home, and one with Martha, a servant.

Lady Catherine taught the children about the house owner’s life – he was a sheriff and a knight and showed us around his bedroom with his bed costing £20 (worth 60 horses). The children then made a nose gaze, only afforded by the rich.

Martha showed the children the ropes in the kitchen, how to make a spice mix and how they collected water. The also took them on a tour of the gardens.  

We came back together at the end to learn some Tudor dancing.
