Youngsters at a Portishead school channelled their inner rock star to bolster their mental arithmetic.

Children at Trinity Primary School ‘ignited their passion for maths’ by donning brightly-coloured clothing and sporting some quirky hairstyles.

The children spent the day focussing on their times tables, leading to a ‘mathematical buzz around the school’.

The day was inspired by Times Tables Rockstars, a mobile app children use to boost their maths skills.

A school spokesman told the Times: “Students dressed as rockstars for the day to raise the profile of times tables across the school in a fun and engaging way.

“The children were involved in a range of mathematical activities to ignite their passion for maths.

“There was a real mathematical buzz around the school and the children and staff enjoyed being rock stars for the day.”
