World Guinness Record Breakers!



On the last Monday of the current (2016-2017) school year, Willow Brook Primary School in East London along with other schools broke a world record by taking part in the World’s biggest cricket lesson in a single venue.

Chance2Shine was the organisation who arranged the extraordinary event with a running goal for every school to use cricket to teach key life skills in the future.

The Boys Junior Kwik Cricket team from our School who are the Waltham Forest Borough Champions, along with the Girls team who won the bronze medal in the same Borough competition were able to live their dream to practice fielding and bowling skills at the world famous Lord’s Cricket Ground. This talented and experienced team were led by a team captain who happens to be a member of the England under 11s. In order for the world record to be broken, everybody taking part in the lesson were unable to stop for half an hour. Then with an official judge from Guinness World Records, the record to beat was 488 people which was set in Australia in December 2016. It was then announced that Willow Brook and other schools had made a team of 580 members!

Therefore smashing the world record, well done everyone!
