Nearly thirty, mainly year 5 and 6 children took part in Eastcote’s annual inter-house chess competition.
Each of the houses played a seven game semi-final, using proper chess timing clocks which limited each player to ten minutes worth of moves. Games were hard fought and mostly very close.
In the semi finals, Bears beat Eagles and Wolves beat Lions. The final was won by the Bears who will be presented with the chess trophy at an upcoming celebration assembly.
Next half term we will hold our inter-house netball, football and poetry recital competitions.
