Together we dream it, believe it, achieve it!



Children without the knowledge of their past history and culture is like a tree without roots.

Our Aims

Here at Gisburn Road School our aim is:


• To develop children’s historical knowledge and to inspire an interest in the past.

• To help children develop enquiry skills by asking questions about the past and using a range of sources and looking at how the past is represented in different ways.

• To find out about people and events in the past and identify reasons for what happened.

• To bring History to life through creative experiences
