National World Book Day – Guinness World Record Attempt – Year 2 – 6

At Much Birch, we are celebrating National World Book Day by taking part in the Guinness World Record’s attempt for the world’s largest reading lesson on Friday 24th June 2016.  The children will be watching a video of JK Rowling reading the first chapter of J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

As part of the world record attempt we are required to have two official witnesses to verify what we have done.  We have the editor of the Ross Gazette coming to be one of the witnesses and they will also feature this world record attempt in the Ross Gazette.  We are also very grateful to one of our Governors who has offered to be the second witness.

As it is a Guinness World Record attempt we have very strict timings given to us that we have to stick to.  We are required to have all children taking part seated in the hall at 8.50am, therefore, we are asking for children to arrive at school, via the office, between 8.30am and 8.40am.  Unfortunately, any children who arrive after 8.45am will not be able to take part in the record attempt.

As I’m sure you’ll agree, this is a very exciting opportunity for the children and we look forward to the event on Friday.
