Learning to play chess from a young age has great benefits to the educational and social development of children. Not only does it give them problem-solving and spatial skills, improve their memory and concentration, it also teaches children to take responsibility for their actions. With each game beginning and ending with a hand-shake, it encourages respect and good sportsmanship. And its fun! Book you child's place today - places are limited. For ages 6+. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. In partnership with Chess in School and Communities www.chessinschools.co.uk
