PRIMARY school children hope they have become record-breakers.

Pupils at Cuddington Primary School took part in a world record attempt while raising money for Children in Need.

The record – which was officially described as the world’s ‘Largest Simultaneous Lesson in Multiple Locations’ – was attempted via a live ‘webcast’ lesson which was led by teachers David Andrews and Chris Williams.

Pupils at the school joined more than 35,000 children from schools in 14 countries in the lesson, which included a number of problem-solving challenges followed by a short test.

The attempt is now subject to review by officials at Guinness World Records to determine its success in meeting their strict criteria.

The schools have had to pull out all the stops to try and meet the strict criteria.

At Cuddington this was co-ordinated by year four teacher and KS2 Literacy Lead Charlotte Norris, who was supported by the key stage two staff at the school.

Cuddington Primary head teacher Sue Mills said: “What a fabulous opportunity for our key stage two children – a piece of history at Cuddington Primary!”

The attempt also raised thousands of pounds for Children in Need, as the event sponsors, Schools Advisory Service, donated £1 to the charity for every pupil taking part.

“Everyone involved can also be extremely proud of the fantastic sum already raised for Children in Need,” added Sue.
