Spring 1 2020-Travel through time
This half term we will be learning about the Industrial Revolution and the changes that occurred in Bradford. We will be visiting Bradford Industrial Museum on Friday 31st January 2020 to learn about what conditions were like for children working in the mills. We will also take part in two different workshops to learn about how woollen fabric was produced and what Victorian classrooms were like.
We will be learning about the history and growth of Bradford during the Industrial Revolution into the city it has become today. We will understand how cloth was produced before the Industrial Revolution and the growth of the wool trade and its factories and mills. We will also learn about life in Victorian Bradford and about some of the historical buildings that can be found in Bradford today including the Wool Exchange, Bradford City Hall, Midland Hotel and St George’s Hall. We will learn about the dangerous conditions in mills and will understand what a typical working day would have been like.
After half term we will learn about the different types of transportation used at the time of the Industrial Revolution (canals, horse and cart, and steam trains) and their importance to the growth of industry. We will then compare Bradford in the past with Bradford today and will understand how transport and travel has changed. We will also learn about the changes in travel within our local area including the Wyke and Norwood Green railway station which closed in 1953 and the Spen Valley Green way
