Stocksbridge Juniors/Locality G - Inter-School Games Tournament

On the 17th April we had the privilege of returning to Stocksbridge Junior School, following a series of dates at the start of the academic year where we worked with KS2 children. Our return visit was something that not only allowed us to work with Stocksbridge Junior School again, but also pupils from surrounding schools.  Schools from the Sheffield Locality G were invited to take part in an Inter-School Games Tournament. A fantastic alternative to the usual sporting activities and a great way to bring a Learning Community together.

Rossett Acre Primary win a Bright Sparks Day!

Airecon 2019 was another successful event for the Imagination Gaming Team. Our Family Zone was kept busy with lots of families attending and taking time to learn and play some incredible games.

Following on from 2018 we decided to run another School Tournament and this year we had the pleasure of meeting and working with 47 local school children, who along with their teachers took part in our competition and had lots of fun!

Summer Reading Challenge 2019 Announced!

The countdown has started... 5,4,3,2,1, BLAST OFF!!!

The annual Summer Reading Challenge has been launched into orbit,  and we've got some fantastic ideas lined up for libraries ... and schools too!

Previous years have seen a galaxy of themes that have been stellar for games, such as 'the Olympics', 'Animal Antics' and 'Mischief Makers'... but this year's theme has us flying to the moon and reaching for the stars!

Airecon 2019 Inter School Tournament

So, we have just spent a weekend away in Harrogate as part of the terrific Airecon Games Convention, a friendly open gaming event that's rapidly growing in popularity.

Accompanying us on our first day were 47 local school children, who along with their teachers, came to compete in our Inter-School Games Tournament.

A competition with something for everyone! We ensured we had a range of games that would appeal, irrespective of the sort of games you enjoy.

Kirklees Inter-school Tournament at Dewsbury Library

So, one week on from our event at Rawthorpe Library, it was Dewsbury Library's turn to play host, in the latest of our Inter-School Tournaments in Kirklees Libraries. This time we had a whopping 7 new schools come to try their hand at Imagination Gaming!

An open plan library, we set up in the children's area for the day, and rather than interrupt regular proceedings, library visitors and staff remarked on what a wonderful atmosphere it created, plenty of energy, laughter and plain old good fun!
