'Throughout the last four terms my class have been involved in the CSC programme with Kajetan Wandowicz teaching them.
Whilst in these lessons, my class have been completely engaged and motivated into playing chess regularly in and out of school.
Although originally some children found it hard to access some of the lessons due to limited knowledge using coordinates, I have found they have gained a lot in this aspect of mathematics and furthermore it has helped develop and aid their understanding during our class mathematics and ultimately their individual progression.
This year I have found my class completely emerged into mathematics and as a result of their chess lessons and class maths lessons simultaneously I have seen maths have the highest progress than that of any other subject we have been learning.'
