Learning Chess

Learning Chess

chess Mr Maguire is setting up a chess tournament. We are learning how to play chess. All of us can play.  Qwam are Tyler have done lots of practice and we think we are the best. Mr. Maguire will give us some homework passes if we ever beat him. We record our checkmates on a chart. We, Qwam and Tyler, are drawing. We learned about what each piece is worth. A queen is worth 9 points and a pawn is worth 1. Hopefully we will have the tournament soon, we will have to keep practicing before it starts though.   Qwam and Tyler

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun went very smoothly again this year. The children loved it and gained a lot from playing maths and card games with an adult. We have a lot of excellent card players in 4th class now so adults beware! Thank you to the adults who took part. We suspect they had more fun at times than the children! Reading for Fun will be on in the New Year, in March at some stage. Please let the Home-school Teacher know if you are interested in working with the children on this.
