Learning through football... Holmfirth Junior School pupils Sophie Carr (front)

Learning through football... Holmfirth Junior School pupils Sophie Carr (front), Crystal Ward and James Bowers measure Huddersfield Towns pitch in a pioneering education project. The nine-year-olds were the first of hundreds of local youngsters who will spend a Wednesday afternoon testing maths, geography, history and English skills at the Leeds Road ground. The club is one of the first in Britain to take part in a teaching initiative called Football Approach to Cross-curricular Topics - FACT. Said Town secretary Chris Patzelt: " It is based on the premise you can teach anything in Junior school via the medium of football." Children will learn about maths by measuring the pitch and ground, find out about geographical location and what vegetation and industry surround it and about the history of the club. 11th September 1991

. In this photo print, we witness the pioneering education project at Holmfirth Junior School. Leading the way are nine-year-old pupils Sophie Carr, Crystal Ward, and James Bowers as they embark on an exciting journey of learning through football. As part of the innovative teaching initiative called Football Approach to Cross-curricular Topics - FACT, these enthusiastic youngsters spend a Wednesday afternoon at Huddersfield Town's Leeds Road ground. The club has become one of the first in Britain to embrace this unique method of education. Under the guidance of their teachers and with support from Town secretary Chris Patzelt, these young minds delve into various subjects using football as their medium. Mathematics comes alive as they measure every inch of the pitch and grounds meticulously. Geography lessons unfold as they explore their surroundings, discovering geographical locations and studying vegetation and industry nearby. And not forgetting history; our future scholars uncover fascinating stories about Huddersfield Town's rich heritage. This remarkable initiative demonstrates that anything can be taught in junior school when approached creatively. By combining their passion for football with academic pursuits, these children engage in active learning that sparks curiosity and nurtures a love for knowledge. This timeless photograph captures a momentous occasion where sport meets education – a testament to how innovation can shape young minds while fostering teamwork, critical thinking skills, and an appreciation for both sportsmanship and academics alike.
