This week we continued to work towards the Health & Fitness Activity Badge. We talked to the Beavers about the difference between healthy sugar - as in fruit - and the unhealthy sugar as in cakes and biscuits. They then we asked to make a poster showing the different types food and which sugar they contained. We then gave them skewers to make a fruit kebab.
The Beavers this week was an evening of Games. The meeting on Wednesday was very noisy but the Beavers enjoyed all the games.
The Beavers this week were learning how to take their own pulse and how it varied during exercise. They first found their pulse and counted the beats for 30 seconds. They then did various activities - walking, hula hooping, egg and spoon race and finally a run around the field. After each activity their took their pulse and recorded the difference between each activity. Well done to Stanley, Harry and Wilfred for remembering their promise and being invested into the Beaver Colony.

23rd/25th APRIL, 2018

This week we were celebrating St George's Day. The evening was spent playing games that relate to St George. Welcome to the three Beavers who were invested this week Stanley, Iris and Samuel.
Last week we were putting the "out" into Scouting with a Treasure Hunt. There were no prizes involved just the satisfaction of having found the answers to as many of the 14 clues as possible. The Colonies went out in Lodges with at least two adults with each group. The Beavers also wore the relatively new high vis tabards. This made it very easy to keep track of them and where the other groups were. The clues were all visible from a route which went from the Ranche towards the cafe, then out to Longford Avenue, along Cromwell Rd, along Edge Lane, back into the park, to Longford Stadium, along the side of it and then back to the Ranche through the Rose Gardens. I think most of the Lodges were reasonably successful in finding the majority of the answers.
