At Gisburn Road Primary school Geography is the study of places. We explore the relationships between the world and its people. We study the location of the physical and human features of the earth. We examine how people affect, manage and sustain their environment.
Geographical enquiry helps children to learn about their immediate surroundings, the broader world and how the environment can affect their lives and determine decision making. The study of geography helps to develop a sense of identity and promotes responsible citizenship.
Here at Gisburn Road Primary School we aim to explore our own local surroundings and use the amazing environment that is on our doorstep: - from canals, countryside, to our own school grounds and field.
