Nursery Rhyme Singing 03

On Friday 12th July, Haddenham St Mary's School is hosting an attempt to beat the Guinness World Record for the 'Most people in a nursery rhyme singing relay'!

The current GWR is 288 and children from HStM and Haddenham Community Junior School are coming together to sing one word each at a time of 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat'!

They Did It!

The children achieved a new record of 292!

It will take about three months for the Guinness World Record people to declare it officially.

Well done to everyone involved!

The event took place during Haddenham St Mary's 'specialist week', where the school selects a topic for the school to focus on and the children follow an exciting timetable of events and activities centred on it. This week, the children are looking at the theme of 'Community' and the GWR challenge brings two Haddenham schools together, as well as members of Haddenham St Mary's Church and Dr Kate Kennedy, Writer and Broadcaster and parent of a pupil at HStM's.

Each child had been asked to donate £1 to Child Bereavement UK who are providing a Witness for the record attempt and giving a talk to the children.

Mrs Karen Collett, Headteacher of HStM's says; 'We are really excited about possibly being in the Guinness book of records. We couldn't have done it without the fabulous organisation of our teacher, Mrs Gilbert Scott. It will be a wonderful finale to our community week and we are so pleased to be able to raise some money for such a worthy charity as Child Bereavement UK. A huge thank you to everyone involved."
