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.

World Book Day

World Book Day was quite something at Beckfoot Oakbank today. 

We read a book in a day with our year 7 students. Staff in each of their lessons read chapters aloud.  Each Year 7 has their own copy to keep of Anthony McGowan - I am the Minotaur - to keep. 


Why do we celebrate World Book Day...

Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them.

World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success and it’s fun for all involved.’

See photos below of some of the characters that appeared in our school today. 

Thank you to our year 7s for taking part, roll on next year.
