MANOR CE ACADEMY IS PART OF

Chess Club: September 2018

25 June 2018

We are hoping to run a weekly Chess Club from September 2018 after school in the Learning Resources

Centre at Manor CE Academy as we acknowledge the benefits of playing chess can bring to our students.

Children who play chess regular can benefit from :

  • a raised IQ level;
  • increases in creativity and problem-solving skills;
  • improvement in their memory, reading skills and concentration;
  • the teaching of planning and foresight.

 

Peter Clousdale, from York, is an experienced English Chess Federation Coach and works in a number of local schools. It is expected that the Chess sessions will be extremely fun and for all levels of ability. They will include training together with competitions in the LRC.

There are a number of County events in which pupils can participate and specialist coaching will be provided on opening, middlegame and endgame strategies. A number of chess puzzles and positions will be analysed on the chess display board too. The weekly charge would be £3.00 payable half termly in advance. However, at this stage, we are just trying to gauge numbers and have not set a date or time.

If you are interested in your child attending this fun and unique club, please complete the attached slip and return it to Mrs O’Neill in the LRC by 6th July 2018.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs M O’Neill
