Maths Weeks – Chess

We are celebrating Maths Week this week with a focus on Chess. We are having so much fun. All pupils, Junior Infants – 6th Class are following the Chess lessons with their teacher on at their own pace each day. For example, pupils in the Junior Room focused on the pawn on day 1 while pupils in the Senior Room learned about the pawn, rook and knight. At the end of the week we are having a small, fun Chess Tournament in pairs in the Senior Room.

Playing Chess has huge benefits for children (and adults!); these include social & cognitive benefits, as well as building resilience. Please see link below for information.
