London Chess Classic Tournaments 2014

On December 6th 2014, 5 children from our school went to the London Chess Classic 2014 tournament. 

These children were:
Joshua   5LM

Harrish  5M
Tristan   3H
Krish     3H
Anan     3H
When we arrived off the train we had to walk a little way and then we saw the venue. We were all called to the auditorium. We watch a short animation on Chess. They then asked us to pick 2 children, so we chose Joshua and Anan. They had to go onto the stage and play a game which would go on a screen. We then went out of the auditorium to go and have lunch. 
After lunch everyone went to the playing hall. Everyone played very well and we managed to win 2 medals, 1 gold and 1 silver
We were then told the school scores. We came third. Unfortunately there was no prize for 3rd place.
The main thing was that we all played really well and had a fantastic day.
