Fascinating fact finding afternoon
Gayhurst School Year six pupils Anand Kaur and Elisha taking part in a joint history and geography project TELEVISION show Dragon’s Den has nothing on some of our enterprising year six pupils after they took to the streets to find out how business in Bucks has changed over the years.
As part of a joint history and geography project girls from Gayhurst School, Gerrards Cross, split into five groups and surveyed all the shops and businesses between them in one afternoon.
They asked questions such as ‘how long have you been here’ and ‘what is the biggest change you have noticed in Gerrards Cross’, the intrepid girls found out the hardware shop Lords has been in the village the longest.
The biggest changes most businesses cited were ‘supermarkets and coffee shops’.
Headmaster, Andrew Sims, said: “What was a simple survey turned into a fascinating fact finding afternoon’.
