Dream Bigger Dreams activities
- What is the University of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield belongs to you. It exists today because the people of Sheffield made it happen.
In 1904, the working people of the city, your great-grandparents and their parents, donated a penny to the cause and raised £50,000 - about £17million in today's money.
They wanted Sheffield to have a university because they wanted you to dream bigger dreams and make those dreams real.
You may find it useful to talk to your pupils about inspirational people and how they can be role models.
- What is your dream?
You can talk to your pupils about their own aspirations for their future.
- What is it like to be a student?
Here are some activities and ideas on how to get your students exploring university life.
- What is graduation?
The graduation ceremony is what all students look forward to - it is the chance to celebrate all their hard work with family and friends.
