TIME SENSITIVE: Valid on 9th November 2015
Thank you so much for participating with us in our Guinness World Record.
We have had such a wonderful response from 49,000 learners in 347 Schools over 18 Countries across the globe.
We had some teething problems with our submissions process so we have extended the submission date.
We do not want any disappointed children 🙂 If you have not submitted your entry, please do so today.
You now have until Monday 9th of November 23:59 GMT UK time to submit your evidence to us.
This is a fund raising event. Please make a donation if you possibly can. $10 from every participating school would train 3 more teachers in disadvantaged communities. $30 would mean AIMSSEC would have bursaries for 12 teachers.
Even if every child donates 10p, 10 cents or 10 rupee, we would raise $4,000 for our partner cause, whose founder has coordinated this world record and written most of the resources. The cause is AIMSSEC – empowering children in disadvantaged communities to Rise Up from poverty through excellent, sustainable education. You will find a donation link and more information at www.bubblymaths.co.uk/AIMSSEC
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EVIDENCE
You will find word files of blank templates for witness statements and the Guinness Schedule 3 form for both the balloon modelling lesson and the Largest maths lesson at the bottom of this page.
The links and information below are also for both. Please use the links and attachments relevant to the record that your school attempted.
If you attempted BOTH records then please submit separately for each record.
What should your witness statement contain?

– TEACHERS and facilitators COUNT towards the participant numbers
– WITNESSES do NOT count towards the numbers.
