Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Understanding the World around Me

Students in Yellow Base have been exploring their local environment over the past few weeks



Our students have been making links to History of Place and the changing local environment around them which links to our ‘Understanding the World around Me' topic. They identified famous buildings and famous people and learned about historical people who made a difference in the local area. During their time taking part in these sessions they have identified different buildings that have changed over time, including the Old Market Hall and Butter Cross in Bingley, and have read the plaque which informs people when and why they were built.


They visited the Bingley Five Rise Locks on the Leeds Liverpool Canal which celebrated its 250th anniversary this year as an iconic piece of engineering which is still in use today, and witnessed how dedicated volunteers regularly clean the stepped locks in a specially equipped barge.
They also spent time in Roberts Park in Saltaire learning about its developer and they enjoyed asking questions about Sir Titus Salt and what he did for the health and well-being of his workers. 


They also went up to Brontë Parsonage to see where the Brontë Sisters lived and the church they attended. Students loved looking at the little old shops up the cobbled road in Haworth village, and spending their money at Mrs Beighton's Sweet shop! They finally enjoyed an ice-cream in the park before returning to school. Students had a fantastic opportunity to experience first hand the diverse parts of their local area and appreciate what a special part of the country they live in.
