The Young Knights of Newham took part in the English Primary Schools Chess Association (EPSCA) U9 zone on 14 March in Richmond. Considering their relative inexperience they performed well and enjoyed the day.

 

They were accompanied by Jerzy Dybowski and Maria Manelidou. CSC London Coordinator Dan Staples said "Well played to everyone - there are no easy games at this level. Stefania Iosub scored 3/3 which was very impressive. It was good experience for the team and I know they can learn from it and get better.

 

The U11 team play on 21 March and the U11 Girls on 18 April. We wish them well.

Hartley Centre wins at Ellen Wilkinson

10 February 2015

 

 
   

Hartley Centre won this year’s Ellen Wilkinson Primary School invitational tournament. The centre’s four players scored 14 points out of a possible 20, just half a point ahead of Hartley Primary School. Ellen Wilkinson came third.

 

 

   

Hartley Primary School led by two and a half points after four rounds but Hartley Centre’s 100% final round – including a win in the single school v centre clash - was enough to overhaul its school namesake.

 

The top individual scorer was Robert from St Joachim’s Primary School, dropping just half a point. Second equal, each scoring four points, were Ainis from Ellen Wilkinson; six-year old Shreyas representing Hartley Centre; David from Hartley; and Navid from Vicarage Primary School. Top scorer for Gallions Primary School was Martin.

 

“This was yet another good result for Hartley Centre despite losing some of their players to the school”, said Alan Bright, a CSC tutor and who ran the event, “It was also good to see the two youngest players, Hal [who scored three points] and Shreyas, both from Gallions, doing so well”

 

The Hartley Centre chess club, open to all ages, meets 5-6pm during term time at 267 Barking Road, East Ham.

 

Final scores: Hartley Centre 14; Hartley School 13½; Ellen Wilkinson 12; Vicarage 11; St Joachim's 10½; Gallions 9.

 


 

Hartley wins Gallions tournament

24 November 2014

 

 

   

Hartley Primary School, which has taken part in the CSC programme, won a tournament today at Gallions Primary School, another Newham CSC school. The five-strong Hartley team had an aggregate score of 16½ after the five rounds, pipping Ravenscroft, a CSC pioneering school, by just half a point.

 

The final round saw just one Hartley/Ravenscroft clash, on board three, and the win there for Ravenscroft looked decisive; but later on board five a Ravenscroft player succumbed to a back-rank mate while comfortably ahead on material.

 

Third place went to Ellen Wilkinson; the other competing schools were Gallions, the hosts, and Vicarage.

 

The individual winner was Hartley’s Joshua, winning all his five games – despite being the youngest of the 26 players.

 

“Thanks must go to Bisi Imafidon and Gallions Primary School for hosting the tournament”, said Alan Bright, who takes a CSC breakfast club at Gallions and who ran the event. “The spacious playing area certainly helped and it was great to see several children getting their first taste of competitive chess”.

 


 

Ellen Wilkinson wins at Hartley Centre

29 Oct 2014

 

 
   

Ainis, a year five pupil at Ellen Wilkinson Primary School, won a half-term tournament at the Hartley Centre in East Ham. He scored 3½ out of 5 - a draw in the last round being sufficient for first place on tie break. The tournament attracted players from Hartley, Sandringham, Ellen Wilkinson and Gallions Primary Schools and also Langdon Secondary School and the Stratford Library chess club.

 

Alan Bright, a CSC tutor who runs a club at the Hartley Centre, said, "These sorts of tournament are always great opportunities for children to face opponents they wouldn't normally meet and today was no exception". The Hartley Centre chess club meets every Wednesday during term time from 5-6pm.

 


 

A13 Green - Canning Town Flyover Event!

15 August 2014

 

 
 
   

Every Friday throughout the summer 2014 Newham Council put on events under the Canning Town Flyover. The space is named after the Newham boxer Terry Spinks who won gold in the 1956 Olympic games.

 

The Council commissioned The Brick Box to put on the events. CSC were invited to take part in the Chess and Boxing event on 15th August. Dan Staples, Roman Ismailov and Alan Bright were the CSC players who gave lessons and entertained. CSC brought a giant set and some normal boards and sets.

 

The event was well organised with boxers, table tennis and Zumba dancers doing their stuff and live music. A lot of children came and played chess and quite a few adults too. Photos were taken by Matt Badenoch.

Mayor’s Newham Show 2014

12-13 July 2014

 

 
   

On 12 and 13 of July the Mayor's Newham Show took place in Central Park, East Ham. CSC were pleased to be asked to provide a Chess Tent again. The Show was a wonderful experience with many attractions for all the family. Our Chess tutors played chess with many different types and ages of people. They taught children how to play chess and gave advice to improving players. Vladimir Agasaryan, Roman Ismailov, Julian Meszaros worked on the first day of the festival and Alan Bright, Jerzy Dybowski, and Vladimir Agasaryan, worked on the second day of the festival.

 

Vladimir Agasaryan who worked on both days of the festival said: ‘There were queues of people waiting to get a chance to play and learn from one of the CSC tutors. The level of players varied and there were a lot of nice games and lessons learnt.’ He added that ‘there were many students who came along from the schools CSC teaches in in Newham and it was interesting for the tutors to play chess with their students outside of the classroom.’

 

On both days the CSC tutors invited Newham residents who wanted to play more chess to come to Stratford or East Ham library on Mondays and Thursdays and there were a lot of people who were interested. All the tutors enjoyed the festival and look forward to returning next year.

 


Testimonials

 

Sue Ferguson, Headteacher, Ellen Wilkinson Primary Sch., Newham - "Chess is helping our less academic pupils and pushing the more able. I can see clear, measurable correlations between individual pupils' increased academic attainments and their chess performance and improvement."

 

Alison Sharp, Headteacher, Ravenscroft Primary School "This initiative is tremendously powerful in terms of raising our pupils' confidence and aspirations. We are very grateful to CSC for including us in their programme. I am proud of our pupils - they are so enthusiastic and dedicated. It is a privilege to be able to see the impact it is having on them."

 

Emma Nicholls Headteacher, Selwyn School 'We've been very pleased with the work of Chess in Schools at Selwyn and would recommend the programme to others. Our Y5 classes have a lesson each week are followed by a KS2 after school chess club which is always oversubsribed. We're pleased to see our children enjoying chess; but in addition we see clear learning opportunities in terms of strategic thinking, working in teams and problem-solving. The competition opportunities really help to widen horizons.'

 

Sir Robin Wales, Mayor of Newham - "Chess is another skill that kids can learn. It improves their concentration and we believe it improves their cognitive skills, which we will research. Giving kids opportunities to find the things they enjoy builds their resilience, and that’s what we’re about." (from our Newham launch video)

St. Joachim’s Primary School Tournament April 27th

 

Having shared first place at the London Borough of Newham 2014 Primary Schools Team Chess Championships, it was very pleasing that St. Joachim’s Primary School continued to show its support of the CSC initiative by opening its doors to a young group of chess enthusiasts on a damp Saturday morning.

 

50 players from 12 Newham schools participated in the event, with notable performances from Oscar Dybowski from St. Joachim’s, Daniel Mezhlumyan from Ravenscroft, Samuel Gulipili from St. Winefride’s and Kata Szatmari from Calverton amongst others.

 

Jerzy Dybowski, a coach with Chess in Schools and Communities and the event organiser, said: “All players presented a very high level of chess and worked very hard throughout the 9 games. I am delighted by the number of participants, especially from St. Anthony’s Primary School and I would like to thank all the parents and teachers for providing the means for the players to improve and excel in chess.”

Youngsters at Newham chess competition show Mayor how it‘s done

 

 

Young players Yola Stephenson, 7, and Samuel Gulipilli, 10, pose

with Mayor Sir Robin Wales

 
 
   

Youngsters from local primary schools demonstrated a talent for strategic thinking when they taught Mayor Sir Robin Wales some game-winning moves as part of a local chess tournament launched recently.

 

The launch of the Newham Primary Schools’ Team Chess Tournament kicked off at the Old Town Hall in Stratford where more than 160 children from 13 schools across the borough joined the mayor.

 

Sir Robin made the first ceremonial move at the school tournament and told the children about his involvement in his school chess team.

 

The mayor said: “Chess is another skill that young people can learn."

Newham Primary Schools’ Team Chess Tournament by Alan Bright

 

Ravenscroft, a pioneer school with Chess in Schools & Communities (CSC), and St Joachim's, one of the schools involved in the charity’s Education Endowment Foundation funded research project, shared first place with 77 out of a possible 90; Calverton came second with 75 and Ellen Wilkinson third with 74. Carpenters, Dersingham, Godwin, Hartley, Lathom, St Winefride's, Vicarage and West Ham Church Primary Schools also participated.

 

 
 
   

Over 160 children competed in the event. For some it was their first tournament but almost all the members of the Newham under-11 team were there, and several won age-group prizes. These included Frankie Niland from Ravenscroft, Daetwaan Fraser from Ellen Wilkinson, Kata Szatmari from Calverton and Bhavika Raghupatruni and David and Joshua John from Hartley.

 

Oscar Dybowski from St Joachim's was the only player to win all six games.

 

Malcolm Pein, the director of CSC, said, "The sheer number of children playing chess today is a testament to the work that is being done in Newham schools - which has certainly been helped by the support of Newham council and Barclaycard, which sponsored today as part of its Yes2Chess initiative."
