Due to the success of a previous CPD workshop and several requests from individuals/schools, I decided to offer a repeat of the session on Friday 30th June, once again using Gloucester Farmers’ Club as a base.
The above was the theme for the Department of Education’s annual geography conference, this year held on Wednesday 14th June 2017 at UWE’s Frenchay Campus.
After much time and effort, both from myself and those at Wicked Weather Watch, it is great to see the recently devised Key Stage 2 scheme of work and its associated resources available for educational professionals to download free of charge (see http://wickedweatherwatch.org.uk/ for further details).
The scheme of work, entitled ‘Lets’ go on an awesome Arctic adventure‘, enables teachers and pupils to explore this incredible region via an enquiry-based approach and from a cross-curricular perspective.
Today, I set off rather early for Cirencester Deep Park School (CDPS) in order to deliver a whole day’s workshop, centred around the Arctic, to nearly 70, Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 pupils and accompanying members of staff.
