Chess for Cognitive and Social Skills- Ficheall Network

Chess for Social & Cognitive Skills is like no other summer course as it is extremely hands-on and teacher-centred. Chess is a growing pastime in Irish primary schools with 1 in every 6 primary schools now joined the Ficheall network. It is an excellent extension to teaching the SPHE curriculum from 1 st -6 th class as well as being a fun hobby for students (and teachers)for rainy days. It promotes a variety of social and cognitive skills such as respect, forward planning, problem solving, decision making, accepting defeat, understanding resilience and developing a productive disposition to problem solving; all of which are addressed in the free beginner lessons available to participants. Course is approved for 3 EPV Days.
