Chess Club G1-2

Let’s play the oldest game in the world, Chess! We will be exploring about the chessboard and get to know all the pieces. Have you met my friend the Rook? Or the Knight? We will learn how pieces move and capture. We will play practice games with only pawns as a start and then introduce Bishops, Rooks and then the Knights, before bringing in the heavy hitter, like the Queen and introducing the concept of Check or Checkmate. We’ll spend plenty of time on the basics, make it simple and let the children set the pace.
Playing chess increases problem solving skills, improves memory, exercises both sides of the brain, increases creativity, improves patience and concentration not to mention the social interactions and making chess friends for life. Check Matey!
