As I type we have just completed the first of three games tournament’s as part of our on-going Games compendium project with Sheffield Children’s University… and it was brilliant!
Today’s event concentrated on Key Stage 2 pupils (7 – 11yr olds) from 10 schools across Sheffield, and in the coming weeks we have events for Key Stage 1 (5 – 7 yr olds) and Key Stage 3 (11 – 14 yr olds) pupils too!
It all started back in November when we delivered our own, specially tailored, boxes of games to schools across Sheffield who are members of the Children’s University. The idea was to give them the ability too realise the social and educational benefits of this type of activity and the opportunity to set up their own games clubs.
As further motivation we set up these inter-school games tournaments to giive them something to look forward to and extra reason (if they needed it!) to get on with the games.
Today proved to be a fantastic event and was thoroughly enjoyed by pupils, teachers and the Imagination Gaming team too, so we can’t wait for the next tournaments and we’ll make sure to tell you all about them, the competition involved and of course all the winners on our blog in a couple of weeks time!
