The future of junior chess in Burngreave?

Future of junior chess in Burngreave?

Did you know chess was on the curriculum in Burngreave primary schools? For two years the charity ‘Chess in Schools and Communities’ ran classes for seven to nine year olds.

Hundreds of children learnt to play chess. Hopefully the experience had positive impacts on their cognitive and social skills.

It has since been hard to sustain chess opportunities for local children, but hopefully teachers will consider the benefits of chess for children: it would be wonderful to see the revival of school chess clubs and competitions.
