Chess Success!

Our fantastic Fishergate chess players at the Hull Junior Tournament. Prizes all round!

N won the Minor Section (for the second time in a row!) with L third and A and A sharing fourth and the best under 11s prize.  J was third in the Novice section and B the best girl. M missed out on a share of third by drawing a game he was winning easily in the final round but still finished with 3.5/6 in his first ever individual tournament.
Top tactics, super strategic thinking, amazing attitudes and plenty of practice and persistence from our chess champs!


Learning about Holi in 3/4

Holi was celebrated in Year 3/4.

We learnt about how Hindus celebrate this festival by throwing powder paint at their friends.  We threw it onto paper though!  We examined how they remember good triumphing over bad, the relevance of the bonfire and the celebration of Spring. Super active learning – well done Year 3/4!


We are open!
