World Records

Hi Year 6

Hope you have enjoyed the weekend after all your efforts last week.

Little task for you-we are going to look this week at great human achievements so we would like you to find out about a world record and post it on the blog. Try to find out about one that really interests you and that other people may not know.

    This is one of those records that can take several decades to break but Melvin Booth and Lee Redmond made the sacrifice and achieved combined fingernails lengths of 9.05 meters and 8.65 meters.

    My world record is the highest chearleading basket toss. This was acheved by the Australian All Stars Chear Federation on the 3rd of September 2013. If you were wondering the height was 5.5 metres high (18 feet). Wow. Many people might be thinking ‘what is a basket toss?’. Well it is were a flyer stands on two peoples arms and they throw them in the air, so that is incredible.

    My world record is that Misao Okawa from Japan is the most recent oldest women in the world. As she is 117 but still has not become the worlds oldest women ever yet. She has still got to live another 5 years to beat Jeanne Louise Calment as she went an amazing 122 years of life.

    Hello my world record is that the Blue Whale has the biggest heart on earth. It weighs up to 160 tonnes. A Blue Whale’s heart is the size of a car. It beats 4-8 times per minute meaning it has the slowest heartbeat.
