The Children’s University develops the love of learning in children. Children who participate in Children’s University have the opportunity to learn in a rich range of contexts and experience new places and activities. This adventure introduces children to the joy of learning, brings a sense of wonder in the world around them and develops their confidence and aspirations.

At Ringsfield Primary School, we encourage and celebrate participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school. Once the children have signed up, they receive a Passport to Learning, where they collect stamps on each occasion they learn through an extra-curricular activity. At the end of the school year a graduation ceremony is held to recognise and celebrate their achievements.

Take a look at what some of our members have to say about Children's University.


'It's really fun because you get to go to lots of new places' - Lilly 

'I felt really proud to recieve my certificate' - Alice 

'It felt like a real graduation!' - Lilly 

'You get to go lots of different clubs and learn lots of new things' - Alice

Colchester Zoo have released a new home learning pack!

You can earn 1 hour of CU learning for each completed activity. 

Each activity has minimal set up and you can use everyday household items and craft items. You can do the activities in any order, though some activities have supporting information or additional workshops on other pages.
The pack covers different topics ranging from animal adaptations, habitats and endangered species and some are aimed at young children and others for older children, however this is just a guide.
Some activities will need adult support and/or supervision, but all the activities work great when adults play along too!
