Chess Club 

Monday 12.30 - 13.15 p.m. (Years 2 - 6)

The chess club has been busy this year.

   All members of the club are familiar with the fundamentals, such as checkmate, stalemate, value of the pieces and profitable exchange on the chess board. We have continued to expand our knowledge of the game and have focused on improving our playing skills by learning how to make more accurate evaluation of our chess positions.  Many pupils also studied plenty of chess at home using the outstanding online chess tutor www.learningchess.net 

   The school has entered the Cambridge Chess Championship, which is a team tournament run over six Saturdays during the academic year. We came a respectable 11th out of 24 participating schools. Congratulations to core members of the Newton and Harston team: Yoav, Oren, William, Benjamin, Ben, Bryn, Noah and Isaac. Please take a look at www.cambridgechess.co.uk for detailed information.

   In the Spring term we have run the Delancey UK Chess Challenge, which is a nationwide tournament, with over a thousand British schools taking part. The first section of the UK Chess Challenge was a seven-round in-house tournament. Many children have qualified for the Megafinal, the second section of this exciting nationwide chess bonanza. The Megafinal on April 30th was a full-day very tough tournament, and three of our pupils (Yoav, Oren and Benjamin) have qualified for the Northern Gigafinal.  

    Congratulations! We wish them the very best luck!
