Yo-yoing their way into the record book
12:00pm Wednesday 27th February 2013 in News
PUPILS at Oxford High School for Girls have been celebrating after they helped break the record for taking part in the biggest science lesson ever.
In November they were among 2,000 children at independent schools across the country who took part in the same practical science lesson using yo-yos and bean bags and now their achievement has been recognised by Guinness World Records.
Ella Hobbs, 11, said: “It was so much fun to do this – we’ve got to think of another record to break.”
