Improve Your Word-Play
The ability to communicate effectively is without doubt the most important skill throughout life. The capacity to explain oneself and understand others will define a person’s integration into society, their confidence and aspirations, and is the foundation to successful learning in all subjects. We can help those new to the English language and those developing their skills throughout childhood, with more expressive games that primarily serve to boost confidence in class and bring them into the conversation. Reading, writing, speech, vocabulary, spelling and wordplay - we have plenty of games focused on basic communication skills that can begin with fun and inviting game play, but also lead to in-depth conversation and investigation, and inspire projects to directly target the nuances of language schools are charged with delivering. The interaction and competition in playing them (often involving teamwork) help to make the topics a lot less intimidating, to expand the boundaries of their imagination and help make their goals more achievable.
We have all received a text message and thought... Eh?! In a world where quick messaging through technology becomes more and more prevalent, an appreciation of context, meaning and constructive grammar is a must. We bring games and activities that challenge extended vocabulary, word association, lateral thinking, meaning and interpretation - all equally vital in getting the message across. Body language can speak volumes too as hand gestures, physical representation and facial expressions are all part of everyday communication too. Simple games that include gesticulation, direction and emotional expression can also highlight another strand of communication... and be very funny too!
Something To Talk About...
Run throughout the day, these sessions include games that can be played in small, supported groups for those less able, larger self-reliant groups and even whole class groups if appropriate. The teachers will love the simple mechanics of the games that make them easy to use, whilst being challenging and clever enough to make a real difference - and the pupils will have something new and exciting to talk about in class.
I found the Imagination Gaming Workshop both fun and educational, Nigel managed to engage some of our most vulnerable and least able students in such a way that their confidence in numeracy and literacy flourished, the children enjoyed themselves so much the learning became fluid and spontaneous - Monica, Behaviour Manager, Leeds.
