We have now had 25 pupils sign up for the Chess Club, which I hope can get into full swing after half term. If you would like to sign up, please drop me an email rih@clairescourt.net and I shall send you the joining code. Remember to use lichess.org over the break to keep working on your chess. If another pupil from the club is online at the same time, you could even challenge them to a game. Please do let me know if you have been playing any chess over half term as well as how you got on.
