Extra-curricular activities from Children’s University
The Children’s University have launched a new online portal to enable every child in the UK to take part in their national extra-curricular activities programme. It’s a great way for children and parents to find out about free and low-cost activities in their local area, and each time a child takes part in an activity, they get a virtual ‘stamp’ in their Children’s University Passport which eventually leads to certificates being awarded which can be downloaded and printed off.
This online opportunity is aimed at primary school children and costs £3.50 per month to join.
