The Sheffield Children’s University Passport home learning activity newsletter for the Spring Bank holiday is now available! 

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting Government guidance, all of our Learning Destinations are not running as they normally would. However, many have started to deliver 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 and Learning Destinations will be sending us registers as usual. Others may be producing online, downloadable activities so keep an eye on their websites and social media for more info. We’re also continuing with our 2020: Year of the Nurse and Midwife activities and they’re all included in this newsletter, so there’s plenty to choose from.

On the 25th March 2020, we started to publish our very own Sheffield CU home learning challenges. These are shared every weekday with a special weekend challenge published each Saturday and will continue for the foreseeable future too!  Today, we published our 50th daily CU Home Learning Challenge since schools closed to most pupils, and we want to say a HUGE thank you to all those who have taken part so far. We have been overwhelmed by the commitment, resourcefulness and real love of learning we have seen in the children and families who have taken part and we are absolutely LOVING seeing your photos, videos and examples of the fantastic learning you’ve been choosing to do at home! Do keep sharing them with us on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #SCUChallenges.

If you would like to take part in any of the challenges, we have collated details on them all into the newsletter. There is currently no time limit, and no order in which to do these so feel free to pick and chose as you like!  Also, there is further info on how you can claim CU credits for completing these challenges if you normally attend a Sheffield school and have a Passport to Learning.

If you see challenges published by other CUs across the county, then do feel free to complete them. To claim your CU credits, you’ll need to download a diary sheet from our website (or use the one attached to the back of this newsletter!) and email it in to us to make sure your credits are counted!
