Chess for Beginners - New lunchtime club for 2018

Our new club, ‘Chess for Beginners’, started on Monday 10th September. We welcomed 20 children across years 1 to 6; whilst some of the children can already play a full game of chess, others are completely new to the game.  We started with looking at how the pawns move and challenged the children to a fun ‘pawns only’ game to see who could take the most pieces from their partner.  This week we added the bishop to that game; it won’t be too long before we have everybody playing with a full board and then we will start looking at some more difficult movements.
