Tom came in from school last week saying he had signed up for a small chess tournament at school. He often play chess in break times with friends, plays with Simon occasionally and has even got to play with gite guests.
Day one of the tournament loomed and we wondered how he would do. On coming home he announced there was both good news and bad news!
"The good news," he said looking very pleased with himself , "was that I won my match against A and I am now in the semi-finals!" Tom is only in his first year at secondary school and his opponent was in his third year so we were really pleased and proud he had won.
