In December 2010 Mr NK and his team achieved the Guinness World Record for the largest maths class of 275 people. However since then it has been beaten numerous times around the world. Sweden currently hold the record of 3611 people.
IT’S TIME TO BRING THE RECORD BACK TO ENGLAND (BIRMINGHAM). ON SATURDAY 16TH APRIL, WE WILL ATTEMPT TO BREAK THIS RECORD AGAIN USING THE TUNES TIMES TABLE METHOD.
TunesTimesTables is a creative, dynamic and memorable method of teaching the times tables quickly. This method has helped thousands of children across the country since it has been in operation. Our objective is to teach children and adults the times tables through rhymes, music and performance poetry. Music is highly influential and Mr NK uses this to his advantage in this method of teaching and has had great results from this phenomenon.
Just hours after being named as the Pride of Britain during a star-studded celebration, the winners arrived in Downing Street yesterday for a tour of No10 by the Prime Minister.
The inspirational group, all clutching their silver statuettes, were joined by their families in the grand Pillared Room where they met David Cameron.
And as soon as the premier walked in, he made a beeline for cheeky Child of Courage Harley Lane who had the audience in stitches as he received his award from Nicole Scherzinger.
Along with millions of ITV viewers, Mr Cameron witnessed the eight-year-old refusing a kiss from the X Factor judge at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel during the glittering Pride of Britain Awards – sponsored by Lidl.
He thought he had been invited to Clarence House to discuss his groundbreaking way of teaching maths with charity officials
Prince Charles gave the Royal seal of approval to one of our inspiring Pride of Britain winners in a hilarious surprise moment.
Clifford Harding thought he had been invited to Clarence House to discuss his groundbreaking way of teaching maths with charity officials when Charles himself walked in to tell him he had won the Prince’s Trust Achiever category at the Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards tomorrow night.
He told him: “Due to all your hard work you have won. Can you believe it?”
Clifford, 36, was so stunned that he literally sat dumbstruck and struggled to respond. Charles nodded his head and laughed at his reaction.
Then, when he had recovered his composure, the pair chatted about how Clifford set up his organisation with the help of the Prince’s Trust to use rhymes to help children learn their times tables and generally improve their numeracy. He even performed one of the rhymes for Charles.

HE IS the Pride of Britain and the pride of Birmingham too after millions of TV viewers watched maths maestro Clifford Harding scoop a national award for his unique way of teaching youngsters their times tables.
The 36-year-old won the Prince’s Trust Achiever honour during ITV’s Daily MirrorPride of Britain Awards for overcoming long term unemployment and dyslexia to be an inspiration for the next generation of children by teaching them maths to rhymes.
And Harding, also known as NK after his company New Kreations, got a “ten out of ten” from Birmingham Lord Mayor Councillor Mike Leddy who called his journey to success “a fascinating story”.
