Beaver Section News
This week the Beavers continued working towards their 'My Skills' Challenge. Each lodge was given pictures of healthy and unhealthy teeth and then they had several pieces of paper with different food items printed on them. They then had to match up the healthy and unhealthy. They were then shown a large set of teeth and they took it in turns to show us how they should brush their teeth and for how long. We then did a simple crossword on the subject and did some colouring in. At the end of the meeting we had a discussion about exercise.
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.
