Enjoy, Exceed, Excel
Chess Mates is an after-school club for pupils from Years 3-6, who want to play chess in a relaxed and informal environment. Each session we focus on a new skill, play mini games, solve worksheets and enjoy lots of matches.
As well as playing each other, we take turns to play against the computer. We use www.chesskid.com which provides a safe environment for playing online and has lots of articles and videos to help improve our game.
If you have any questions about the club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
