Parents & Carers
The Children’s University of Manchester has been designed to support KS2 (7-11) teaching and learning both in the classroom and at home. The resources can be used for whole class teaching with an interactive whiteboard and also for group, individual and homework sessions using pc, tablet or mobile devices.
The website can also be used by parents, carers and children at home. Why not work through the module yourself and then use your knowledge to help your child?
Discussion and interaction between a child and their parents or carers is known to play a significant role in a child’s development and educational success. An important objective of the Children’s University of Manchester is to give children an insight into University life by introducing them to students, staff and graduates who will explain what University life entails, show children that it is a welcoming, accessible and exciting environment and importantly give children aspirations for their own future. This is achieved using profiles of key individuals, photographs and stimulating facts about The University of Manchester and its many achievements as well as the Student Life module written by two of our own graduates.More about this service
