Barnsley Town Centre Collaboration Inter-School Tournament

Barely into the new school year and yet another Inter-School Tournament to shout about, this time with primary schools from the Barnsley Town Centre Collaboration!

This time we were in a very familiar area, with lots of the schools involved with Imagination Gaming on a regular basis, with teams from Shawlands, Joseph Locke, Burton Road, Summer Lane, Holy Rood and our wonderful hosts for the day Keresforth Primary.

Excellent day, good tutors, enjoyable games, a must have for all schools!

Dungeons & Dragons: A path back to reality

Wizards of the coast & DND: Escaping the real world to find a path back to reality

As a child, the real world was a pretty frightening place to me. With little confidence and admittedly a ‘late developer’ in academic terms, I struggled to fit in. My progression was slow, i had few friends and didn’t have the drive to become more. This picture is neither unique or even uncommon and so it is for many young people today. There are many younger children and young adults that are filled with fear and their way of dealing with the world and others is to lash out.

Klask: Simple games solving complex problems…

The reputation of games nowadays is that of the coolest of hobbies. With stunning artwork, clever mechanics and infinity more players than ever before, it’s a great time to be a gamer in this hobby.

However, sometimes games aren’t as accessible as we might imagine for some. There are many within society for whom artwork can be off putting, maybe not wanting to ‘like it’ for a fear of what others might think.

SMAT Primary Inter-School Tournament

 

2019 continues to start with a bang at Imagination Gaming with yet more Inter-School Tournaments!

Following first time competitions with schools in Worksop and North of the border in Scotland, this October we have returned for our regular competition with the SMAT family of schools in Barnsley for yet another fantastic day of games.

A fantastic day that really allowed children to shine!

Imagination Gaming were recently asked to go to Scotland as part of their national maths week.

The schools there had been invited to consider new options and initiatives available to them to help with their maths learning, funded through the Scottish Government, and as part of their search they discovered us.

They were one of a tiny handful of schools to have been successful in their bid.
