Peterloo Massacre

In year 6 we have been looking at the history of Royton. We have been learning how and why the Peterloo Massacre started and how the people were killed. It happened on the 7th August 1819. At that time only the rich people were allowed to vote. It was on Saint Peter’s field in Manchester. The people met in the Hope and Anchor which was being used as a library and for work.


On Thursday 26th Jan 2017 Year 6 had a class assembly about the Peterloo Massacre. Lauran Knox played the clarinet and Matthew G and Jamie played the drums while the other children were marching and clapping their hands. At the end we had a song about the Peterloo Massacre by a band called The Oldham Tinkers.
