Beaver Section News
This week the Beavers were working towards their "MY Skills Challenge". They had to perform a play - so each lodge was given a line and they had to read it in sequence. They did very well and all managed to say the words at the right time. Congratulations to Laura, Lucas and Anna for learning their promise and being invested into the Longford Group.
This week the Beavers were working towards their Outdoor Challenge badge. They had to identify 5 birds, animals and insects - where they live and what they eat. Each lodge did this separately whilst the rest of us played games. Congratulations to Luke on being invested into the Group.
For the first meeting after Christmas things were a little different. The Group had arranged for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to have a joint meeting at Play Factore on the Wed night. For those who had chosen not to go there we had a joint meeting at the Ranche with a games evening. Again this was different in that it gave members of both Colonies a chance to meet each other though I am sure that some of them know each other from school.
This was out last meeting before Christmas and we played a game of Reindeer Drive - this is the same as a Beetle Drive but with a seasonal twist. Each lodge played and the Beaver with the highest score won a prize.
This week was Christmas Make & Take and the Wednesday Beavers were asked to bring the tube from a toilet roll. They then drew some bricks on a sheet of paper and then attached this to the roll to represent a chimney They then cut Santa's legs and boots and put this in the top to represent him going down the chimney. They then attached a piece of string so that the decoration could be hung on the Christmas Tree.
