Record Breaking Gingerbread Event

Record Breaking Gingerbread Event  1

Record breaking photograph – here are 1,200 children, staff and governors from the three schools setting world records for the largest number of people making a gingerbread person, whilst holding the biggest collection of real gingerbreads.

To launch the Market Drayton Learning Partnership, the Infant School and Junior School joined the Grove School on Friday 3rd July to participate in an ambitious programme of educational activities.


The children joined together in mixed age groups to undertake a variety of activities, including: drama, singing, number fun, science, art and PE. Thank you very much to the year 10s from the Grove school who led many of the activities so brilliantly.


After a picnic lunch on the field all the children joined together to form a gingerbread man shape in the ultimate collaborative effort to break a Guinness World Record. Parents, governors and the town mayor joined the children to witness this amazing achievement.


Thank you very much to the Grove school, staff and pupils for hosting the event. Thank you very much to Image on Food for providing the gingerbreads for this special occasion and the team who took the aerial photograph.


A huge thank to the committee who created and organised this amazing event for the children. They have worked incredibly hard to make this a day that will long be remembered.


Congratulations and thanks to: John Hargreaves, Chair of the Infant Governors, Becky Pendlebury, Sarah Turner and Becky Longsdale from the Infants School; Rachel Giles, Michelle Williams and Sharon Wright from the Grove; Donna Dowling and Lindsey Hughes from the Junior School.
