Tshwane Home Schoolers Expo is proud to announce that Moves for Life will be venturing with us and exhibiting at our Expo.
Who is Moves for Life? Let me tell you.
The Supreme Chess Trust (IT 3705/09) trading as Tsogo Sun Moves for Life is an initiative that uses chess as a tool for education, which helps improve maths, science and problem-solving in children.
Move for Life (MFL) introduced its MasterMoves chess programme by using chess as an educational tool, to focus exclusively on the Foundation Phase. The programme teaches learners mathematical skills, science and life orientation skills and also enhances Language Development (Gr. RR – 3).
MFL believes that the key to unlocking the cognitive potential of children is through structured implementation of chess education in-class from Gr. RR-7, where chess principles are intentionally linked to mathematics, science, language and life skills.
What does Moves for Life offer?
We have since partnered with academic institutions that continually conduct a research in terms of how this educational tool impacts on the improvement of the learners’ academic performance. The evidence is becoming so visible that learners who are participating in our MasterMoves Kids Programme show improvement in their mathematical as well as self-confidence, better communication and risk-taking (positive written feedback from schools currently participating in the programme).
MFL is excited to collaborate with TechSavvy Kids and JCSE (Wits) to open the coding world via chess to South Africa’s children.
Moves for Life has already implemented both the MasterMoves Kids and MasterMoves Chess programmes with great success at more than 100 schools. Since 2011 more than 1010 educators have been trained to teach children the Moves for Life formula, and more than 40 000 South African school learners have effectively been taught Mathematics, Science and Life skills the Moves for Life way, and the results are phenomenal!
The wonderful thing about the MFL initiative is that it does not only encompass education as a tool but also sports and culture which leads to school learners developing a positive attitude towards their school work.
