Chess at Whingate Primary School


Recently I was invited to Whingate Primary School to play chess against a number of pupils in a simultaneous game! 

Pupils at Whingate have been playing chess for quite a few years and some of them are getting very good! I am really pleased that a number of schools in Leeds West play chess, it is a great way for pupils to learn good concentration skills.

 Representatives from Chess In Schools joined me on this visit, they do regular chess training with the pupils to help improve their skills.
