The Beat the Street competition is return to East London, from the 20th September to the 8th November and we are excited to be taking part again. We have even been invited to the launch event so Mr Ekeama and Mr James Smith will be taking 6 lucky Juniors to the ArcelorMittal Orbit on the 20th to tap special beat boxes and slide down the 178m slide.
In the next couple of days, the boxes will be going up round Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest and the children will receive their fobs so they can begin collecting points. And don’t feel left out grown ups – you will be given Beat the Street cards too so that you can register and collect points for the school.
The year before last, Baden Powell came second over all and first on average points so we are hoping to repeat that success again this year. So get your walking shoes on, get out into the fresh air and get tapping.
