3 facts about… Rochdale

Tags: , ,

We are now the focus class for the latest round of quadblogging. We will each be posting 3 facts about our local area or region.

I will kick off with three facts about Rochdale:

1. Rochdale is about 15 miles North of Manchester.
2. The Olympic torch passed through Rochdale on Saturday 23rd June 2012.
3. The 2nd stage of the Tour de France will visit Rochdale on Sunday 6th July, and I’m going to watch it!

Please feel free to ask me questions about any of these facts.

    Here- our country is officially called the United States of America. Some other names are U.S., America, The states,…

    Thank you! Mrs. K. DiBattista’s class

    Thank you for the amazing facts. Is Rochdale a big city or not? What food do you have?
