CHILDREN proved they had all the right moves to be record breakers.

Youngsters at St Peter and Paul’s RC Primary School joined a nationwide disco with a difference as they took part in an attempt to achieve the record for most people exercising at the same time in multiple venues.

And it was not their dance moves which will hopefully help them achieve the record, rather their motor skills.

For they were moving to a dough disco, complete with lights and everything needed to transform the hall into a dance hall with children creating different objects using play dough in just 15 minutes.

Sixty children joined hundreds across the country as they held a dough disco in a bid to set a Guinness World Record.

Deputy headteacher Vanessa Knowles said: “This involves using play dough and dancing with fingers by pushing and squeezing the dough. The movement is so important to develop fine motor skills.”

She said that there was a disco ball and flashing lights to make the event more exciting.

Within quarter of an hour children created everything from pre-historic creatures, snails and even a snake.

Jenny Crouch, nursery and reception teacher, said: “We had quite a few dinosaurs because we have done a topic on it.”

The world record attempt is in the process of being verified and the school will find out soon whether they will enter the Guinness World Record Book.

Excited youngsters said they would love to try it again.

Louie O'Neil, aged three, said: “I loved it. I want to do it again.”

Aisilda Ndoci, aged four, added: “I loved it. I made a dinosaur.”
