Working with schools

Do you want to access up to the minute resources to teach about climate change and related topics? Or to hear directly from an explorer, scientist or those living in the Arctic?

WWW offers schools a unique way to teach about climate change by providing resources that meet cross-curricula requirements, as well as bringing the issue to life for students through direct contact with those who have witnessed climate change in the Arctic for themselves.

WWW’s schools programme strives to inspire students to care about climate change, the impact on our planet, and to engage in activities that will reduce our footprint on the Earth.

For more information about how your school can work with WWW visit our SCHOOLS PORTAL or download our SCHOOLS INFORMATION LEAFLET.

Northabout open days – a taste of life as an Arctic Explorer!

During British Science Week, on Saturdays 11 and 18 March, 10am-2pm, Northabout will be open to visitors at her berth in Portishead Marina.

Having completed the multi-record-breaking Polar Ocean Challenge in summer 2016, Northabout will be setting sail again later this year on her next expedition to Greenland.

The open days are a rare opportunity to set foot aboard this Arctic expedition yacht and to meet crew from the Polar Ocean Challenge. Each young person who visits will be able to take away a piece of rope which travelled around the North Pole on Northabout during the Polar Ocean Challenge voyage!

Address: Portishead Quays Marina, The Docks, Portishead, BS20 7DF (Please note parking is pay and display).

Key Stage Coordinators, Geography/Humanities Subject Leaders, Key Stage 1 and 2 class teachers, NQTs and trainee teachers

Do you teach the topic ‘Invaders/Explorers’?

How might you teach about cold environments in a more cross-curricular way?

Why not look at teaching and learning from a slightly different perspective, yet still enhance pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the continents of Europe and North America?

Are you keen to increase pupils’ awareness of the rising temperatures and shrinking ice within the Arctic, firm evidence that global warming is really happening?

 

If the answer to any of the above questions is ‘yes’, then sign up to our CPD workshop on Friday 31st March 2017, 9.30am-12.30pm, Gloucester.
