The youngsters at Winyates Primary School were given the lesson with a twist last week, as Rubik’s Cube expert Laurence Livsey came to visit the pupils.

Laurence is a speed-cuber, and able to solve the 1980s toy in a matter of seconds - and he gave the children tips on how to complete the puzzle.

Jessica Homewood and Maisie Ludlow were two of the youngsters given the task of finding the solution to the iconic cube - which has a total of 43 quintillion combinations.
