This week E4 – our print and design service based in the Bradford area arranged for one of its customers to put on a Tagtiv8 session at the Learning Zone – Tagtiv8 mixes exercise activity and problem solving skills. Attending was Lewis Anderson, Waqas Amaan, Khawer Bashir, Shaun Metcalf and Raja Assan-Ali , supported by Shauna Hoodless and Sara Lee. Also in attendance was Tom Armstrong, E4 Business Manager and Bryn Llewellyn, Director of Tagiv8. The session lasted 1 hour and everyone got involved in the problem solving games and exercise routines. In the end the green team just managed to beat the white team but a fun time was had by all and the teams had earnt a nice cool drink afterwards.
Comments from the day:
Lewis said he “enjoyed doing something new and had fun running around and solving the puzzles.” He” totally would like to do it again.”
Shaun said he “enjoyed making words and counting the numbers” at the end of each game.
Shauna said “We had loads of fun and People We Support got a lot out of it.”
Bryn Llewellyn said “the students were amazing, they got the games and exercise straight away and really participated.”
Tom Armstrong, “We are adding a new element to E4 by asking our customer partners who use our services to put on events for the people which attend and make it a success. We help Tagtiv8 launch the system with schools and it was great of Bryn to arrange the session and show how the games work. Everyone had a great time.”
