Pupils from Cavalry Primary School in March are among the 622,809 children needed to break last year’s sport stacking Guinness World Record.
The attempt is by the World Sport Stacking Association, which needs more than 622,809 children to take part in a sport stacking activity for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Sport stacking, also known as cup stacking or speed stacking, is an individual and team sport that involves stacking plastic cups in specific sequences in as little time as possible. The cups are specially designed to allow for faster times.
All classes from key stage two are taking part today (Thursday November 9) and sessions are running all through the day.
Cavalry Primary is one of the schools with the highest number of pupils taking part in the whole of the UK.
