Learnstorm 2016 has started. Learnstorm is a teaching / learning tool available this year for 9 weeks. Pupils may access it in school or outside of school hours. The aim is to master as many topics as possible, earning points and badges as we go. Hints, supporting videos and step by step solutions are provided for every problem.
