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.

We had so much fun learning all about the mill and the children of the Victorian times. We role played what it would be like to live in the Apprentice House with 90 children and 2 adults to look after them! We decided we definitely prefer to live in 2023 and go to school than work for 6 days a week, 12 hours a day for no wage! We learnt so many jobs and tasks of the children and had the best time. Ask us all about our learning and enjoy the pictures!

KS2 Christmas Production, by Miss Hulse

Date: 12th Dec 2022 @ 3:43pm

KS2 performed a fantastic production of Silent Night. 


Silent Night is a delightful children's nativity set in 19th century Austria, where the villagers of Oberndorf are busy preparing for their Christmas Eve pageant. Amidst the hustle and bustle, they realise that naughty mice have destroyed the church organ. How will they organise music for their special celebrations at such short notice?

Discover through this beautifully adapted story how a poem written by a parish priest resulted in the well-loved carol Silent Night.

Before half term six children from Years Five and Six represented St Peters Church of England Primary School in a cross country event at Fallinge Park High school. The event consisted of lots of primary schools from the Rochdale borough and was a mix of both boys and girls races. The children each ran 2 kilometers on a track that had been set up on Fallinge Park school field. Despite the cold and windy conditions, each pupil performed excellently and they all confidently completed the cross country run within the alloted time. Well done! 

Black History Month - Year 5, by Miss Healey

Date: 21st Oct 2022 @ 3:39pm

We looked at Black musicians this year as part of our Black History Month studies. Year 5 was given the theme of rappers, we chose Run DMC's - "It's like that" as our focus song. We learnt the words and the social relevancies of the lyrics, then created a dance-off style music video, putting our own spin on the official music video. We hope you love it as much as we do! :)
