Monday 22nd February – World Record Attempt

Filed under: Whole School @ 7:55 pm

On Monday, the whole school took part in an official Guinness World Record attempt. The event was organised as part of World Book Day and involved schools, colleges, libraries and other organisations all taking part in a book quiz at the same time. The official attempt was ‘The most people participating in simultaneous book quizzes’.

All the children gathered in the hall for a 2pm start – they were divided up into teams of 8 or 9 children from a range of year groups. The quiz was all about books, authors and characters and was made up of 45 questions. We had a fantastic time! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking part with their team and we hope that we will find out that we have successfully helped to break a World Record! An announcement will be made on World Book Day (Thursday 3rd March) – so we will have our fingers crossed.

We must thank all the extra adult helpers who came along and supported and took on official roles of stewards and witnesses for the event.
