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.

The summer holidays are almost upon us and we at Sheffield CU have got our families covered!  Alongside the Festival of Fun 2021, we’re really pleased to be able to bring you our CU Passport Activity Newsletter - The CU Festival of Fun PLUS! which is full of activities, events and ideas to keep your children, young people and families occupied over the summer. 

you can find it onine here:


There are holiday camps and clubs, sports, the Summer Reading Challenge, discovering wildlife and nature, dance and drama, arts and crafts, music

and circus skills.   There are also some activities being run especially for children with special educational needs and disabilities. Why not take a look?


All activities will earn CU credits if children have a CU Passport to Learning, which will all go towards their CU awards. Some activities are charged for

while others are free.   Don't forget, there is the CU Festival of Fun happening right across the summer as well as the Bears of Sheffield Trail - phew!

With the libraries not quite fully operational in some places, we know it might be difficult to get your hands on a Sheffield CU Passport to Learning at the

moment.   Worry not though, you can now order these online from us directly. Just click here:

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!
