Launch of 3 new Sheffield Adventures with Children’s University

Create Sheffield

We are thrilled to become a validated Children’s University Learning Destination. This year children will be able to gain CU credits by taking part in our Sheffield Adventures!

Why does this matter?

Sheffield Children's University has over 44,000 members who have collectively taken part in around 3 million hours of learning outside of normal school hours. Their data has shown that the children who participated make more progress in their learning at school, grow confidence, motivation, self-esteem, and the most importantly, have fun! Create Sheffield is proud to be a part of this initiative.

About the new Adventures

Growtheatre, in partnership with the Sheffield General Cemetery, Emily Whiteley from In-between the Trees and Terezia Rostas from Care for Young People’s Future received commissions to create new Sheffield Adventures, which they wrote and tested with children and young people in the city last summer.

Growtheatre’s Cemetery Trail ‘The Show Must Go On!’ reveals the stories of some of the different performers who are buried at the Sheffield General Cemetery.

In-between the Trees invite you to take part in their ‘Sensory Circuits,’ encouraging a sense of wellbeing, and written with special educational needs in mind.

Care for Young People’s Future wants you to share what YOU think makes Sheffield so fun and adventurous in a Sheffield ‘Suitcase Adventure’.

How to claim CU credits 

What to do

  • Take part in a Sheffield Adventure which can be found on our website. Each Adventure will guide you on what to do to complete the creative activity and how you might share with others.
  • Email to share your learning, please include any pictures/videos as evidence.
  • For Sheffield CU members, please include the name of the Adventure you completed, your full name, DOB, school name and CU Passport to Learning number (found on the front page of your Passport under the consent sticker). Then we will inform Children's University of your great work!
  • For other CU members, please include the name of the Adventure and we will reply with the CU Activity Code so you can claim your credits.
  • Want to try the new Adventures? Keep an eye on our social media channels at the beginning of April to take part. You will also be able to find the Adventures on the CU website soon.
