Pupils en­joy a day of games... thanks to com­pe­ti­tion win­ner

Warwickshire Telegraph - - LERANING ZONE -

PUPILS at Bablake Ju­nior School were treated to a day of fun games last week, thanks to Year 6 pupil, Rory Bad­ham, who won a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion dur­ing a trip to the NEC Gam­ing Expo back in June.

Rory en­tered the “Rep­re­sent your School” com­pe­ti­tion in the Fam­ily Zone, an area run by Imag­i­na­tion Gam­ing, which was ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing a safe and stress-free zone with a huge range of clever and ed­u­ca­tional games.

The com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to par­tic­i­pate and to get in­volved in the games on of­fer and Rory en­tered by play­ing a series of games, with the bet­ter play­ers then hav­ing their names put into a prize draw to win an en­tire day of gam­ing for their school.

Imag­i­na­tion Gam­ing went to Bablake Ju­nior School to show the chil­dren some in­ter­est­ing and ed­u­ca­tional games.

Rory said: “I was shocked when I found out I had won and it was great to have a full day of games for ev­ery­one at school. The best part was miss­ing maths and English that morn­ing!”

Nigel Scarfe of Imag­i­na­tion Gam­ing said: “We were thrilled to be able to come to Bablake for the day and to present the award to Rory for his great work at the Expo. The pupils had an ex­cit­ing day of ac­tiv­i­ties, play­ing ta­ble top and tra­di­tional games that will help sup­port their gen­eral learn­ing.

“We like to get ev­ery­one in­volved when we do gam­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and we get fan­tas­tic re­views be­cause of the high lev­els of par­tic­i­pa­tion and en­gage­ment. We would en­cour­age any­one that’s not given it a go yet to try it out. We don’t think you will be dis­ap­pointed.”

The Gam­ing Expo it­self is a huge event held ev­ery year at the NEC, ded­i­cated to ta­ble top games through­out the UK. Thou­sands of fam­i­lies and gamers come along for up to three days and im­merse them­selves in a world of games.
