What happens at a CU learning activity?
We recognise different types of venues and organisations. What they have in common is that they create or provide fun, safe and accessible learning opportunities for children aged 5 - 14.
Activities that happen in the community: CU Scotland members may visit a learning provider in the community to take part in a learning activity. That could mean a self-guided visit, a venue tour, an interactive workshop, lesson or session. Community providers may also create fun learning activities children can do from home.
Activities that happen in a child's school: Members may also take part in fun activities at their school, happening outside of normal lesson time. It could be a fun club that happens before or after the school day or during break times. Some CU schools even provide extra-curricular activities for home. As long as the activity isn't part of the curriculum, it can be counted towards CU credits and awards.
Activities that happen at home: Passport holders can also collect credits for taking part in a wide range of activities at home with their families. Whether it's an activity or worksheet from our the Learning section of our website, or a free online learning activity or game, such as a Youtube lesson or Sumdog maths games.
This approach helps to connect classroom learning with other learning that takes place in our communities, city centres and countryside. Everyone’s involved — teachers, families, friends and local activity providers — at every step.
