Understanding and applying Maths in a fun and entertaining environment
It was a brilliant day. I learned a brand new game that helped my maths whilst playing with my friends. - Alex, age 8
An absolutely crucial strand of the curriculum for children of all ages, Numeracy (or Maths), is on the timetable almost every day for a decade of their school life. Needless to say that’s a lot of lessons, which can easily become very repetitive and even worse, for those who struggle in that area, they can become a huge source of frustration and resentment.
Our Maths based games days and sessions focus on the skills needed by every pupil to help them improve their basic ability whatever their age, and they have a very ‘cool’ appeal which helps to make Maths more fun.
Literacy days deliver a focussed and fun learning experience
The ability to communicate effectively is without doubt the most important skill throughout life. 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 also lead to indepth conversations and investigation.
Our literacy games days are tailored for the age group and environment and provide an engaging way of meeting curriculum goals whilst also leaving you with with the tools, games and experience to continue using the games.
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.
Enhance your learning outcomes
Today's curriculum is under constant scrutiny, evaluation and change. Methods and approaches come and go yet the underlying principles of education and the basic skills every child needs to develop remain constant. Whether to support a specific aspect of the curriculum or enhance social interactions, our Curriculum Based Games Days are one of our flagship activities and are specifically designed to make a deep and long-lasting difference to your school or organisation. These single days are tailored to your needs with specific games and lessons plans focussed on the outputs you desire.
Reward, Motivate and Encourage with a Games Day
Our Games days are rooted in fun, but are never far removed from the brief of providing engagement, challenge and excitement amongst your target audience. What's more our Games Days leave you with a number of the games involved, the opportunity to receive more and a foundation to build on to continue to use games for both learning and motivation.
The games you brought were varied and fun and made us all think a little bit outside the box while learning and laughing. A great way to engage young people. - Liz, Social Worker, Leeds

Workshops are individual sessions targeted around a specific theme and focus
Individual Workshops are targeted activities designed to assist schools and other organisations with directly accessible and relevant fun learning experiences. All of our workshops have a specific theme and focus, and can be adapted for the age group and environment. From Zombie Diaries, through to Mad Scientist take a look at some of the experiences we can bring to your group in a 'bite sized' session, complete with fun, 'cool factor' and if appropriate predictable work based outputs.
Teaching your school how to Learn to Play and Play to Learn
While much is gained from having one of our games days, changing culture, perception and behaviours can take time. A games day programme looks to do exactly this over a series of several weeks or months. A games day programme looks to act as an intervention to solve either an individual or number of problems at a location or with a specific group.
