Our visit from the police!

Posted in General News | No Comments »

Last term we were lucky enough to have a visit from the police. A local police officer came into school and spoke to us about safety and what the job of a police man involves. He also showed us lots of different equipment and even took us out to his squad car where he rang the sirens for us and let us all sit in the car. It was all very exciting!

Guilty!

Posted in General News | No Comments »

Last week, in PSHCE, we were looking at difference scenarios dealing with guilt and feeling guilty. We learnt that sometimes our actions can have consequences we don’t think about.

One scenario involved finding somebody else’s money and spending it on yourself.
What would you do?
What does it mean to feel guilty?

Here are our purple English group showcasing the poem ‘Surrounded by noise’ written by Ian Souter. We carefully read through his poem and decided how best to split the reading and add actions to make the performance exciting. Have a listen below…

 

What a performance!

Posted in General News | 2 Comments »

This week, in English, we are looking at how to perform poetry so that it captures the attention of the reader. We have decided that the reader needs to demonstrate expressive voices, changes in pace and volume, accent different words and even, where appropriate, add actions.
Here is Mr Couldridge reading a poem and Myra and Molly altering the second verse. How would you rate both performances?
What should Mr Couldirdge do to improve?

New modes of transportation!

Posted in General News | 3 Comments »

As part of our science week topic, Year 3 have been tasked with designing a new mode of transport. We had to think carefully about different designs and, more importantly, about how the vehicle would move. Fossil fuels will not be around forever! We decided that wind and solar power may be good resources to explore, so we thought hard about how these resources could be utilised to add to a new transport.

Together, we used our blue prints to begin to design the next generation of transport…

Science week!

Posted in General News | 1 Comment »

This week it has been science week! Year 3 have had the topic of transport and communication. we began by researching Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone. Where would we be without this wonderful invention?

Linked to this, we decided to create our own phones. We used paper cups and string. Amazingly, the sound travelled along the string and we could hear what was being said in the other cup! This is because sound causes molecules to vibrate which carries the sound. As the molecules are closer together in a solid, the string was perfect for relaying our messages!
However, we discovered this was only the case if the string was held tight. IMG_1981 IMG_1977

Lowerplace Pioneers!

Posted in General News | No Comments »

We’ve had a very exciting day! This morning, in the frosty winter weather, 27 Pioneers of Lowerplace set out to find out more about where they are from. We spent the morning in the Co-operative museum and learnt more about the Rochdale Pioneers and just exactly what it means to be co-operative. We even found out that one of the Pioneers lived in Lowerplace!
We spent the afternoon at Touchstones learning all about life as a Victorian child in Rochdale from the fearsome Mr.Blackwright (who wasn’t really the Victorian master he seemed.)
All of us could agree on one thing: the day was thoroughly enjoyable!

The History of Rochdale – Subhan and Fatima 3a

Posted in General News | 1 Comment »

Rochdale is a large town which has lots of shops, in the olden days there was not so much shops.

How did Rochdale begin?

Just how old Rochdale isn’t entirely certain. St. Chads,the Rochdale parish church, had its first vicar appointed in 1194 then in 1251 the town was allowed to have a market place.

The Industrial Revolution. 

The trading of wool and cloth took place in public houses throughout the town on the market days.Rochdale produced a range of woollen cloth including  kerseys,braises,flannel

The Modern Age.

Rochdale is a large town in greater Manchester and It has a  population of around 206,600.

Only one question remains where will Rochdale go next?

The snow was falling as the bears walked through the woods. The snow was as white as the clouds and it was that freezing that it had frozen the entire lake. The lake was sparkling like a billion diamonds as more snow began to fall in the forest like an avalanche on a mountainside. It was immensely cold in the woods  and the more the snow fell the more frosty the air became. Fresh snow was falling as they were on there way back the bears could feel the cold icy snow falling on there warm fuzzy fur they were fast because it is emmensly

A story a different point of veiw by Adan and irsa

Posted in General News | 3 Comments »

Once upon a time I lived alone in my charming den in the woods. I was very charming and whilst I was walking through the forest I could smell the aroma of daffodils and leafs of the trees.                                                                                                                                        

After a while a little girl  was passing  by so,I went to question her…

“Where are you going and what are you doing here?” I asked her politely.

So,she said none of your business and I’m going to my grandmas (so,I ran of before her!!!)…

After a long time I arrived and knocked on her door.

The  sun  was  as shiny as  gold , as the  bears trodded down the woods.  Leaves  as crunchy crisp under there feet and leaves bouncing by the path.The lake was sparkly, like plain ice. The birds singing and tweeting. Smell lovely ,roses and birds flying by the trees. Beautiful multi colours from rainbows shine on the ground and flowers are falling on the ground.

The Pioneers ,who  were a group of  28 weavers,created a set of  9 principles(which are rules)  for  people to follow everyday.

 

The  Rochdale principles

The reason why the Pioneers created principles  is so they can make life equal.Here is one example that capital  should be on their   Own prouiding  and bear fixed rate of interest.
