Students in Primary and Middle School were fortunate to participate in a Chess incursion, run by Chess KIDS. Students spent time learning about each chess piece and their role and power on the chessboard.
The GLC Hall came alive when the students paired up to play a game of chess against their chosen opponent. Each pair were deep in thought, thinking carefully and making considered moves until one opponent called “check mate”.
A chess tournament was held in the lunchtime break with a group of students playing one-on-one with the Chess KIDS instructor. The instructor moved from student to student, with each student making a move after the instructor.
It was a fantastic day for the students, with each year group having the chance to learn more about this fascinating game.
