Reported by Jackson & Angus
Today we are Interviewing Jacob & Thomas From Year 2. They meet every Friday to play chess during enrichment day.

Jacob started playing chess last year in year 1 with Mrs Greet and Miss Gatehouse. He enjoys playing chess and has a few tactics up his sleeve.  When Jackson played a game of chess with him he took out Jackson’s King and won.

Thomas started playing last year. He knows what a checkmate and a stalemate is & has some good tactics. He is quite good at playing chess and when he played against Jackson they had a draw. Thomas has some quite good techniques at tricking his opponent.
Wikipedia says ‘ it is believed that chess originated in India before the 6th century AD. Chess is a two - player strategy board game played on a chessboard. Casual chess games usually last 10 to 60 minutes, tournament games last anywhere from about 10 minutes  (fast chess)  to six hours or more.
The longest tournament chess game to be played ever was in 1989 and lasted 20 hours and 15 minutes to complete a drawn game .’
