Children's University Events

We deliver a range of exciting activities and events together with Learning Destinations. The events take place throughout the year in Sheffield.

At these events children and young people can: 

  • take part
  • learn something new, and
  • earn learning credits for their Passport to Learning


Holiday Activity Newsletter

We produce a newsletter for each school holiday, which includes activity information from some of our Learning Destinations.


Forest Schools

We run Forest School-type activities and programmes to children in their schools.  We can deliver tailored sessions for school staff as well as groups of pupils.

Activities include:

  • den building
  • tree climbing
  • team games
  • environmental education
  • craft activities
  • cooking on an open fire
  • using tools (such as bow saws, hand drills, knives)
  • woodwork and crafting items (such as kazoos, benches and medallions)

Research has demonstrated the benefits of repeated visits to the same woodland site.

It supports the development of:

  • self-confidence
  • motivation
  • concentration
  • sound social and emotional skills
  • and fosters a love of the outdoors
