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. It has been trialed by teachers and pupils in schools, as well as used in conjunction with a Global Learning Programme, Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 transition project (see http://espley.creativeblogs.net/2017/03/03/global-learning-programme-glp-ks2-ks3-transition-project-cirencester-deer-park-school-cdps-gloucestershire/ for a detailed report of the day), and has been well received to date. There is enough material for a termly topic, or you can simply choose to focus on one particular aspect, such as the pressing issue of climate change. You may even be lucky enough to receive a visit from a real, modern-day explorer – either a crew member from the latest Polar Ocean Challenge (http://polarocean.co.uk/) or, perhaps, Sir David Hempleman-Adams himself?
