Chess in Schools: Pupils vs Teachers
Today I organised a second Pupils vs Teachers match at Ellen Wilkinson Primary School, where I teach chess in an after-school activity. The format is a four-round tournament with the top scorers in each team playing each other each round - this means that the two teams do not have to be the same size - the smaller team's score is simply points scored, the larger teams is the score against the smaller team.
The school really appreciates this - I initiated the match last year and this year the school approached me and asked if I would do it again. It was an easy win this year for the pupils - 16-4.
