The Gloucester Farmers’ Club was the venue for our CPD workshop, entitled ‘Let’s go on an awesome, Arctic adventure!’, and what an ideal one it was too!
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.
Last summer, I spent quite a bit of time creating a scheme of work and associated resources for Wicked Weather Watch, a charity set up to support the Polar Ocean Challenge (POC), led by David Hempleman-Adams (now, deservedly a ‘Sir’ after being knighted in January 2017).
I trialed the unit of work and accompanying materials with Lower Key Stage 2 pupils whilst undertaking a maternity leave cover at Tibberton Community Primary School during Terms 1 and 2 of 2016-2017.
