07. May 2019 · Comments Off on Class 5/6 News: ‘GO’ board game at Iona School · Categories: Steiner education

Last week Class 5/6 were introduced to the board game ‘Go’. Robin Dews, a former parent and enthusiastic Go player, led the first of four workshops, where he is teaching the children how to play this ancient oriental board game.

The game was first recorded in China more than 2,500 years ago and is believed to be the oldest board game in the world still played in its original form. With more than 45 million active players in Japan, China and Korea, it is particularly valued as a teaching tool for children due to its balance of analytical and creative problem solving. It is also great fun!

Thanks also to a generous gift from The British Go Association (www.britgo.org), we now have seven Go boards complete with stones in school for the children to use.

If you would like to learn more about the game or how to play Go, Robin and the Nottingham Go Club meet every Tuesday evening at the Dice Club Games Cafe on Mansfield Road. New players are always welcome.
