A quiz was held on February 22
Children from the Highway Primary School in Orpington teamed up with residents at Churchill Retirement Living’s Atkins Lodge last month to try and beat a world record.
Year 5 pupils were invited to the lodge, as people up and down the country tried to beat the Guinness World Record for the most people participating in a quiz simultaneously.
Adults and children all answered the same questions at exactly 2pm on Monday, February 22.
Manager at Atkins Lodge, Sue Robertson said: “The questions were on children’s books and included rounds on classics as well as more modern tales, so there was something for everyone.
“We had three adults and three children on each team and they enjoyed working together enormously.”
Deputy-head at Highway School, Clare Hallet, said: “We were thrilled to get the invitation from Atkins Lodge to joing them for a quiz for World Book Day -and thinking we were part of a world record attempt made it even more exciting.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit and it’s great for them to experience working with people from different generations.”
