Fidget spinners are the latest children’s craze and one Clevedon primary school has been putting the toys to good use.
Mary Elton Primary School pupils have been allowed to use them in their maths classes, to help with their data and statistical analysis work.
The children were asked to record data on how long, or short, they could spin the toys for.
The results were then calculated and the children had to display their findings in graphs and tables.
Teacher Cheryl Brown said the experiment had been a great success and proved that education can be fun.

She said: “Most children now seem to have these fidget spinners so we thought we would turn it into a positive learning experience. It went down extremely well.
“All the children were engaged and loved that they were allowed to utilise this new fad to move their learning forward.”
