Chess and metacognition

When we talked about chess last week, we discussed the saying that ‘A great game is easy to learn but hard to master.’ 

We started learning chess today  The idea is to learn a great game and, at the same time, think about the different skills and hard work it takes to develop as a chess player (i.e. this will be our weekly metacognition lesson).   

I’ve told the children that www.chesskid.com is a good and free website to use to learn the rules and practise.
