Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

Notre Dame High School is a Roman Catholic secondary school with academy status located in Norwich, England. The current Headteacher is Mr Brian Conway. The school was opened in 1864 and is now a Specialist Language, Science and Training School and a Sixth Form College, teaching 11-18 year olds. The school currently teaches around 1,400 students, 400 of whom are in the sixth form. The Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia, Norfolk County Council, and the Department for Education all support Notre Dame High School.
In 1889 a new wing was built to accommodate around 70 students, and in 1915 what is now Franchise House with adjoining land on Surrey Street, was purchased. On this land the present main building was erected and opened in 1926 when there were 238 female students. A year later, the school became recognised by the Ministry of Education. In 1939 additional buildings became available for the dining hall and domestic science and in 1973 the Lady Julian Building, which had formerly housed the Notre Dame Preparatory School, became part of Notre Dame High School.
A major development in the school took place on September 1, 1979 when ownership of the school was transferred from the Sisters of Notre Dame to the Diocese of East Anglia, and the school's status changed from girls' direct grant grammar school to a voluntary aided mixed comprehensive school.
Since 1980, the St Peter's Building (Science & Technology completed in 1994), the St Paul's Building (Sports Hall, 1985), the St Julie's Building (Reception and Administration, 1996) and St Catherine's Building (Modern Languages, 1996) have been acquired and modernised. In 1995 the Lady Julian Building (Library, Careers, History and Sixth Form Centre) was refurbished. In 2006, the St Paul's building was extensively refurbished, providing a Drama Studio and four new classrooms for Religious Education. This allowed the old Chapel, up until then used as a Drama studio, to be refurbished and turned back into a Chapel. A new building is currently being built; it is expected to be completed by the end of October 2006, and will house a Sixth Form centre, a cafeteria, a library and extensive language classrooms. The St Catherine's building will then be used for staff training. The St Mary's building, currently the cafeteria, will be demolished. The school has purchased a plot of land, once belonging to Norwich Union, for use as a playground for students once the new building is completed.
Mr John Pinnington became the first lay headteacher of the school in January 1997, as successor of Sister Mary Cluderay. The school was awarded specialist school status for Languages in September 2000. Since then the school has become very much involved in charity work, including a student visit to Phuket, Thailand by two students in October 2005. As well as this the school also works closely with the charity HCPT, which raises money for sick children, to take part in an annual pilgrimage to Lourdes in southwestern France.
The school has also recently been awarded the specialist science college as well. The school also has a new teacher training building. Mr. Ed Balls, the former education secretary, visited the school on December 19, 2008. Following a long internal and public consultation, it was decided that the school would acquire Academy status on March 1st 2012. This move will give Notre Dame more power over finances and curriculum, as power is moved away from Norfolk County Council.
The new building is now ready and available. It has been named St. Mary's. The new playground, created as a result of this recent building work, is now open. St. Mary's is a language block, and it also consists of a LRC, a languages computer room, Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) department and refectory. This was opened by bishop Michael Evans and was recently visited by Tessa Jowell, the sports minister.
An astroturf multi-use games area was added during the summer of 2008.
