Barnsley Summer Challenge - Beat the Street
Date: 8th Jul 2020 @ 9:00am
Barnsley Council’s #WhatsYourMove campaign, in partnership with Beat the Street and Barnsley Premier Leisure, is excited to announce a summer of activity for families across the borough. Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus, Beat the Street is unable to take place this year, so this booklet has been created with lots of fun challenges to keep kids moving instead.
The four-page booklet is free for families to download and print in full colour or black and white. It’s packed full of fun challenges, like making an adventurer’s checklist, playing backyard basketball or learning a new game from your family member’s childhood. Next to each activity is three boxes, so children can tick them off or write down their best scores. There’s a focus on mental health, encouraging kids to complete acts of kindness while they’re being active and to write down how they feel when they’re moving their body more.
Free copies will also be available to pick up at Market Kitchen in Barnsley town centre. Please remember to follow safety measures and guidelines on social distancing.
They’d love for you to take part and join in online, by recording videos or taking photos and sharing them on Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag #WhatsYourMove. There are prizes available for the best submissions. For a chance to win, visit the Active in Barnsley Twitter page and have a look at the pinned tweets from Monday 20 July onwards.
Beat the Street in the walking challenge and remember to be kind and stay safe while out moving more with your family.
