CHECK MATE
For the last three years Sheringham Primary School has taken part in the UK Chess Challenge. Over 2,000 schools and over 70,000 children enter annually all across the UK.  Eight children from Sheringham Primary qualified for and played in the Norfolk ‘Mega Finals’ this year in April:
Ross Murray age 11, Callum McLaren age 11, Jodi Norris age 10, Ryan Nolan age 9, Melanie Allen age 8, Edward Knight age 8, Sophie Bialecki age 8 and Alex Long age 7.  All eight of them tried hard and produced some very good results to be proud of. Ryan became the under 9 boys’ champion, Melanie became the under 9 girls’ champion, Edward won the under 8 boys’ championship and not to be out done Sophie won the 8 girls’ championship. Seven of the eight children won enough games to qualify to play in the northern half of the national ‘Giga Finals’ on July 16th in Manchester. This was a tremendous result for the school and the individual children involved.
