WHIZZ kids from a local primary school are geniuses in the making after correctly answering 17,000 maths questions in an on-line competition.

On World Maths Day last week pupils from Stakesby School competed against 32,512 schools from 191 nations.

Children had already done their homework by answering 18,000 questions on the internet at home.

The number crunchers with the highest scores were presented with certificates and prizes at a special assembly on Friday.

In the practice period those with the highest scores and sent to the top of the class were Alfie Lindoe in the 4-7 age group with 540 correct answers and Jeremy Baker in the eight plus age group with 2601 correct answers.

On the day Olivia Jameson-Myers (four to seven age group) got 472 right answers and Jayden Brown in the eight plus group completed 1437 questions.
