Enjoy, Exceed, Excel
Are you ready to become a chess ninja?
Chess Mates meet every week in the Year 5 shared area. The club provides an opportunity for pupils from Years 3-6 to enjoy playing chess in a relaxed and informal environment. Skills are developed, new friends made and a little bit of (friendly) rivalry creeps in!
Each session we focus on new tactics, play mini games, solve puzzles and enjoy lots of matches.
You may have seen chess played in tense silence. Not in our club! Players are invited to bring snacks and have lots of laughs while they play.
I look forward to welcoming new members.
