Over 1,500 children will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Reading Lesson, reading We're Going On A Bear Hunt with author Michael Rosen.
The event, attended by our own Nick Dixon, is designed to raise money for Read for RNIB day and coincides with the 25 years anniversary of We're Going On A Bear Hunt.
Walker Books and the RNIB are hoping the event will also be live-streamed into schools across the UK. Over 300 schools and nurseries countrywide have signed up with over 35,000 children to date who will also join in the fun on the day: including the RNIB Pears Centre for Specialist learning in Coventry and the RNIB Sunshine House School in Northwood London.
As well as schools signing up for the event there will also be four special remote venues around the country who will host in-house screening events with their local schools, these are: Seven Stories in Newcastle, Discover Story Centre in Stratford, East London, The Story Museum in Oxford and Birmingham's New Central Library.
The record is currently held by 1,390 participants who had a reading lesson at the Qatar National Convention Centre, Qatar - so the bear hunters on the 15 July are certainly in with a good chance of breaking the record: We're going to catch a big one!
