Help us change your world!
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.

FREE SCHOOL EVENT: An Arctic Adventure Extravaganza!
Upper Key Stage 2 teachers and Year 5/Year 6 pupils
- Would you like to become an explorer for the day, witnessing some of the Arctic’s key physical (natural) and human features in the process?
- Do you wish to know more about the area at the ‘top’ of our planet and understand why it is like it is?
- Are you keen to discover more about the impact of climate change upon the Arctic region and consider how you might reduce your global footprint?
- Would you like to question a real life explorer, scientist or researcher about their first-hand experiences of the Arctic?
If the answer is YES, then join WWW for a fun-filled day of creative learning, looking at climate change through the eyes of the Arctic. Sessions will include*:
- Music with Sound Matters: climate change specialists using ‘found sound’ to create atmospheric music pieces.
- Geography with Emma Espley: part-time teacher, freelance consultant and Geographical Association Primary Geography Champion.
- Cookery with Kathryn Minchew: a former MasterChef semi-finalist and now professional chef.
- Dance and Giant Arctic puzzles with WWW: climate change charity.
Our Keynote speaker will be Noble Prize winner and Arctic Scientist Prof. Terry V. Callaghan who will share his personal adventures of the Arctic and answer all the children’s’ questions!
Up to 12 pupils and 2 members of staff per school may attend.
Several curriculum areas (KS2 English, science, geography, dance, music and D&T) will be visited throughout the day, in addition to the SMSC strand and values curriculum.
Similar events have been hugely successful. Click here to find out more about the format and content of sessions, see pupils, staff and consultants in action and read comments about the day.

#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, takes place on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday – the 28th November – and is a chance to give something back after all that shopping! #GivingTuesday aims to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate their time, their money or their voice to help a good cause.
This year, Wicked Weather Watch (WWW) is holding a schools event on either side of the big day so that over 200 children can find out more about climate change, it’s impact on the Arctic and UK and what we can all do about it.
We’d like YOU to help us to be able to inspire EVEN MORE children by raising funds for WWW so we can continue our work for the rest of the year and beyond!
It’s a rallying call to everyone who wants to give something back to our planet. And to help you give back even more this year, we’re working with Virgin Money Giving, a 100% not-for-profit organisation, which means that when you fundraise through them this #GivingTuesday, your whole donation will come straight to WWW.
