KIDS love climbing. They're like spiders...
So Town Hall bosses decided to provide them with a big wall to climb during a summer fun day at a school in London's East End.
The fun day theme held at Poplar's Langdon Park school was healthy lifestyles.
Tower Hamlets council's area community team laid on free dental checks and general health check-ups from the Primary Care trust.
There was also plenty of sporty activities like bungee trampolining, five a-side football with Leyton Orient FC and a healthy juice bar.
But the big hit of the day was the urban adventure wall climbing... a huge 40ft structure with mini ledges where the 'spider' kids could scurry up the sheer face to the top.
But the mums and dads watching weren't too concerned.
The kids were fitted with safety harnesses to make sure they didn't take a tumble. They also wore crash helmets... just in case.
