What if there was an easy way to make your most boring, tedious, sit-down lessons engaging and fun for your pupils?
You could even take it further and share your ideas with other teachers and schools all over the world so that children everywhere can benefit and learn in a fun, active and relevant way! If only there was a way to do both…
Well, there is.
Some of our best ideas for active learning games come from teachers and children in schools around the UK! We have been lucky enough to work with some amazing people to create some fantastic, fun and active games.
This Tagtiv8 blog post is a big THANK YOU for your ideas and to let you know your games are now being played across the world.

Why Tagtiv8 Love Collaborating
The idea of sharing knowledge and helping children improve their learning is extremely important to us. Those who know our background will know that we view lessons differently and engaging children through play is essential. That’s why we are so grateful to the people above because their ideas are helping to change the way children learn. To see more about why we collaborate with others click here.
Read about one of our collaborations in this blog post. Working and playing with pioneering teachers and children such as those at Langham Village Primary School, Brudenell Primary School and Westerton Primary Academy fills us with smiles and inspiration.
If you have any boring sitting-down lessons that need activating, send them our way. We’d love to try making them more active, relevant and fun! Get in touch. We’d love to play and learn with you!
