Children at Kingfisher Primary School in Yeovil got creative this week, helping to design some new awards for the Beat the Street game.

Yeovil took part in the Beat the Street challenge in the summer where 7,039 people got involved and together clocked up an active travel mileage of 94,333 miles during the four-week game.

The game is delivered by Intelligent Health in towns and cities across the UK and beyond and will be evolving to include new awards for participants.  The school was one of the most engaged teams in the competition and came second on the average points leaderboard. Dan Tremain, Active Partnership Manager for Intelligent Health, approached them again and asked year 6 pupils at Kingfisher Primary School to help design new awards for players in forthcoming games.

He said: “The children produced some fantastic designs and ideas during the workshop, their work will really help to shape future Beat the Street games for thousands of other Beat the Street players across the UK and the world. A massive thank you to Headteacher Dan Glentworth at Kingfisher for all his support and being such a great advocate for our popular active travel game.”
