Summer Reading Challenge 2017 - Animal Agents

In line with this year's Summer Reading Challenge, we'll be delivering our 'Animal Agents' themed games workshops in Libraries to support the project and help get more kids (and parents!) involved.

We are able to offer these workshops nationwide so show your local library this and get them to give us a call!

 

Ecclesfield Library Dates Extended!

Great news... yet more games sessions confirmed for Ecclesfield Library!

Yes that's right, turn out has been steadily growing over the recent monthly games days we have been hosting at Ecclesfield Library in Sheffield, and we can confirm more dates have been added. This means we will be running these free, drop-in workshops for all the family until at least June 2017.

For more details on times and dates, you will find it all here... Ecclesfield Library Blog

Monthly Games Day at Ecclesfield Library

Great news if you're in the Sheffield area (or even if you're not but you don't mind travelling!)...

We are happy to announce some regular games sessions, one Saturday each month for the next 8 months, and free to attend!

Thanks to some great work and support from Ecclesfield Library, and some Big Lotttery funding, we'll be there for the first session next Saturday, the 20th August, from 10am to 3pm. We have pencilled in the third Saturday of each following month for now and these dates will be absolutely confirmed soon.

Summer Reading Challenge 2016

Each summer in association with the Reading Agency, libraries and schools nationwide take part in the Summer Reading Challenge.

The SRC is an annual event dedicated to encouraging children, particularly 4 - 11 yr olds, to continue reading throughout the summer holidays. This can be a period where their interest and thus their reading development can take a significant turn, one which is not necessarily easily reversed when they go back to school in September.

SHAKEspeare's Stories - Classes in Kirklees Libraries

As part of this year's Shakespeare Week celebrations, we took our specifically created 'SHAKEspeare's Stories' (click to read more) to Kirklees for a week.

Here we worked with the library service to host a series of primary school classes from the area, in the libraries, and challenge them to some themed story writing challenges and a bit of gaming too.
