Making climate change come alive
WWW is passionate about helping young people to understand about climate change. We support teachers with all the resources they need to make climate change and it’s related topics as fun and engaging as possible in the classroom and beyond.
WWW links directly with explorers and scientists who have first hand experience of the Arctic and other places experiencing climate change. Most of our teaching resources use first hand information and data from these experts, enabling us to produce truly unique and inspiring materials for use in schools.
Here teachers can sign in to access curriculum linked resources and other materials to support teaching in the classroom.
It contains six weeks of lesson plans plus all the accompanying resources needed to make teaching about climate change, the Arctic and sustainability fun and memorable for all pupils!
How we work with schools
Our mission is to provide climate change education to children and teachers to inspire young people to become passionate about learning about our global environment and how we can all come together to help protect it.
We inspire – school visits: WWW enables children to hear directly from those who have witnessed climate change first hand. Our fantastic volunteers who have either travelled to the Arctic or are experts in climate change, visit schools to tell children about their adventures and experiences.
We engage – whole day events: Our Arctic themed events for individual or groups of schools allow children to get interactive with climate change through dance, drama, music, and even cookery. Each event is attended by an Arctic explorer, bringing their personal stories and a lot of adventure!
We support learning – assemblies and teaching resources: In partnership with teachers and education experts, we develop education materials that teach about climate change, sustainable living and the Arctic regions in a way that is fun and creative while meeting curriculum requirements. Teachers have used the resources for topics such as Explorers & Adventurers, Cold Environments, Splendid Skies, the Poles and many more! We also offer CPD workshops and KS2-3 Transition days.

We connect – creating global links: We link children in the UK to children in the Arctic or to people who have been there. We connect schools that share a passion for creative learning and positive local and global impact. And we join individuals and schools to millions of others who share the desire to help our fragile world through our partnerships, such as The Climate Coalition.

CPD Training Workshops
Has your school declared a climate emergency but doesn’t know where to start?
Are you keen to increase pupils’ awareness of rising temperatures and shrinking ice within the Arctic, and what impact that might have in the UK and globally?
How might you teach about climate change in a cross-curricular way that also creates a safe space for pupils to explore this complex topic?
If you feel you haven’t received adequate training to educate students about climate change, or if you want a refresher or some new ideas, then why not attend a WWW CPD workshop?
The workshop aims to give teachers the confidence and tools to explore climate change with students, and to take actions as a school. It will:
- ‘unpick’ the National Curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2 and highlight how and where climate change and sustainability fits into different subjects and topics
- showcasecontemporary, easy-to-use resources including a ‘knowledge-rich’ scheme of work – ‘Let’s go on an awesome Arctic Adventure’
- support action planning and sharing best practice to create a plan for your next steps back at your school
- provide you with further information, web-links and free resources.
Who is the training for?
The workshops are aimed at Primary School Key Stage Coordinators, Geography/Humanities Subject Leaders, Key Stage 1 and 2 class teachers, NQTs and trainee teachers.
We are able to deliver workshops for individual schools on request. For further information email Gill Johnson: email@example.com
More details about our CPD workshops can be found here.
- Thursday 11th February 2021 from 16.00 – 17.30pm
- Tuesday 9th March 2021 from 16.00 – 17.30pm
Our workshops are currently being delivered virtually. Bookings can made via Eventbrite using the buttons below.
NEWS FROM SCHOOLS
What a milestone! WWW has reached its 10,000th child since starting our workshops just under 4 years ago! A huge thank you to everyone who helped us to reach this fantastic achievement – volunteers, partners, funders and our fabulous Trustees. We couldn’t have done it without you!
An Arctic Adventure Charity Week!
WWW were absolutely thrilled to be chosen by Victoria Park Primary School’s Year 5 as their charity during Charity Week! During the week, they had a visit from Vicky who talked to them about climate change and explorers – running our by now infamous “Explorer sleeping bag race” – and in particular how melting ice is affecting rising sea levels.
The class then held a series of events including a sponsored walk and cake sale to raise funds for us. Amazing! The sponsored walk was 1.34 miles to represent how Arctic sea ice has declined by 13.4% per decade between 1979 and 2015. Declining sea ice will lead to a loss of habitat for many Arctic animals, including seals and polar bears, and change indigenous people’s way of life.
On the final day of the week, Gill was delighted to visit the school and present certificates to the whole class, with three members receiving books for outstanding contributions to Charity Week.
A huge thank you to Mr Mepsted and all the children – we really appreciate your support and had a great time with your throughout the week!
What an amazing day. The opportunity to work with years 3-6 at St Saviours Junior School, Bath, was just fantastic. Last Friday, 22d Nov, was a full day of climate action for all. Starting with an assembly for all, Years 5 and 6 rotated around 3 activities - a giant...
