Pupils at Howard Junior School participated in a worldwide attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the world’s largest maths and science lesson.

Youngsters learned about DNA and produced an origami model of the double helix DNA structure. Children enjoyed creating their models and it was a great way of engaging them in maths and science and teaching them about DNA. They were among 47000 learners in 18 countries to participate in the world record attempt.
