About Children's University Challenges
Our Children's University Challenges provide CU Learners with learning activities and experiences which can be completed at home.
We have a range of Challenges to suit all ages and interests.
Each activity has an allocated number of Learning Credits.
These Learning Credits will be awarded by either:
the CU Membership School your child attends; or
the Essex Children's University Manager.
You will be asked to submit evidence of the challenge that your child has completed (in our experience photographs of all learning activities works best).
Children are able to complete challenges set by Children's University Managers in other parts of the UK too and these will be shared when they become available.

Ideas to Inspire
Perfect for February half term
We are living in slightly unusual times and CU Learners will be spending more time at home.
We have created this Bumper Children's University Challenge which we hope will give you ideas for activities.
More Challenges will be created and posted here over the coming weeks.
Keeping Safe Online
As a CEOP Ambassador I am able to share with you resources and home learning sheets which, in times when children are likely to be spending more time online, I thought these would be a great way for them to learn more about ways to keep themselves and all of their personal information safe.
For parents there are also helpful guides.
We often don't know as much as we think.
As with all the information with you, none of this is compulsory, but all activities completed will receive Learning Stamps in the usual way.
For each of these completed challenges CU Learners will receive 1.5 hours of Learning Stamp credit.
