What are Sheffield CU challenges?

Sheffield Children’s University is all about encouraging participation in high quality learning beyond the classroom.  We think learning can happen anywhere and it should be challenging, rewarding and most of all, FUN! To ensure our children and young people can continue to learn and collect CU credits for their efforts, we have started to share some CU challenges that children and young people can complete at home.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting Government guidance, some of our Learning

Destinations are not running as they normally would. However, many are delivering their activities in

a different way, using platforms such as Zoom and Youtube which is great to see!

Please do check with them directly about this as CU credits can still be earned by taking part in

these activities (as normal, or virtually) and Learning Destinations will be sending us registers as

usual. You can find a full list of all our Learning Destinations in the newsletter.


There are also links to our very own Sheffield CU home learning challenges!

There is currently no time limit to taking part in these, and no order in which to do these so feel

free to pick and chose as you like!


With the libraries closed, we know its difficult for families to get a Sheffield CU Passport to Learning

at the moment. We are really pleased to announce that individual families can now order these

online from us directly.

Here is the link that can be shared:

These Passports will cost £4.50 (incl. postage). Due to restricted access to our offices at

the moment, there is likely to be a delay in postage but we aim to send them out as soon

as possible!
