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 page or download our SCHOOLS LEAFLET.

Planet Friendly Food – recipes that won’t cost the Earth

As part of 💚 The Climate Coalition’s Show the Love campaign 💚, we celebrated food and four great ways that we can change what we buy and eat to reduce our contribution to climate change: minimise food waste, eat seasonal food, eat locally grown produce, and eat less meat. 

With the help of some of Bath’s best loved foodies, we’ve collected some #PlanetFriendlyFood recipes that use locally and seasonally sourced ingredients, showcase vegan and plant-based food, and reduce food waste. They will not only tickle your taste buds, but help you put new, healthy eating habits into practice that are good for you, and the planet!

Upcoming events

WWW CPD workshop for KS1/KS2 teachers, coordinators, humanities subject leads, trainee teachers, NQTs.

Bath: 6th June 2019, 9.30am-12.30pm, Royal High Prep School, BA1 2UZ.

Want to teach climate change and cold environments in a cross-curricular way? Or maybe raise awareness of rising temperatures and shrinking ice within the Arctic? Then these are the workshops for you! Come and ‘unpick’ the National Curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2 and see how teaching about climate change and sustainability can fit in. There is a Geography focus but we have a cross curricular approach with several subjects covered. Read the fantastic feedback from our previous events! 

Book now – email Vicky: schools@wickedweatherwatch.org.uk

Primary Humanities Network meeting

Wednesday 22 May, 1-3.30 pm. Gloucester Farmers’ Club, Greville Close, Gloucester, GL2 9RG.

The fifth session of this academic year will continue with the theme of ‘Progression and assessment in geography and history’ with the aim for attendees to leave with a clear vision of what it means to make progress in both geography and history and age-specific national expectations for pupils at 7, 9 and 11 years. This should help inform planning and the marking of pupils’ work, as well as support good assessment practice within their school. 

Cost: £35.00pp. To reserve a place, please contact Emma Espley: Tel: 07944 482462 or emma.espley@gmail.com no later than Friday 10th May 2019.
