    • Top tips on how to use less water and understand why it's so important
    • The dangers of reservoirs and open water swimming

  • Our sessions are aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils and cover many subjects, including science and geography. The session can also be used to help your school cover the water elements of the Eco-Schools Award. 

    We cover curriculum based activities such as the water cycle and important water safety messages. Classroom sessions last half a day and the online workshops run for around 45 minutes (we’ll contact you before and send a video to introduce the session and after to answer any questions from the children and provide advice how to find additional resources). Our online and classroom sessions are completely FREE.

  • For all schools in West Cumbria (Allerdale and Copeland), please book your sessions with Lake District National Park by emailing water.workshops@lakedistrict.gov.uk or calling 015394 40275.

    We’ll need to know your name, school name and address, phone number, year groups, number of pupils in each class and the month you'd like the session.

    We’re currently reviewing our offering across the rest of the North West, please contact us at Education@uuplc.co.uk if you'd like to be kept up to date and take part in shaping our education sessions of the future.
