Chess Knock Out Competition 2014-2015

Here are the finalists and winners of our recent chess competition for Year 3 , Year 4 , Year 5 and Year 6 organised by Mr McDowell.
Unfortunately there were no girls who made the finals but Paige , Sophie ( both Y5 ) and Rose ( Y3) all gave their male opponents really good games before being narrowly defeated on points. Of course these girls and all the finalists have qualified to play in the school chess league which starts in January 2015.

A big thank you to Louis Seddon ( former Y6 pupil ) and his family who donated the lovely chess set you see in the pictures which we used to play all of our final games with. Louis loved his chess while at Davyhulme and will be thrilled to know that his love of chess is shared by all of those children using this set donated by his family.
