Wicked Weather Watch

Thanks to Emma Espley for letting me know about a project she's been working on.
It's called Wicked Weather Watch.


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?

Visit the website, and login to access the resources.
