Beaver Section News
This week we were thinking about the birds and have they get their food in the winter. We made some bird feeders to put in our gardens. The Beavers enjoyed mixing the bird seed and lard and putting them into small tubs. Many thanks to Donna for helping us with this task.
The numbers this week were a lot less than usual but those who turned up made an orange pomander. They were each given an orange and they had to make a pattern of cloves and then attach a ribbon. We said goodbye to several Beavers this week and we wish them every success in the Cub Section
This week being Halloween the Beavers were invited to come in fancy dress. When they first arrived they went into their 'lodges' and were given a toilet roll to mummify one of the Beavers. Well done to Squirrel Lodge for doing exceptionally well. They then visited three other sections - one to decorate a biscuit with marshmallows etc. We then had donuts hanging from a line and they had to try and eat one without using their hands. The last item was a large bowl of flour, which contained sweets and they had to retrieve them - again without using their hands.
This week the Beavers were learning how to deal with an emergency. There were four bases - ringing 999 in an emergency and what information they needed to know - how to put a person into the recovery position - how to deal with somebody who was unconscious and how to deal with somebody who was bleeding.
This week the Beavers were divided into pairs (or 3's), they were given a poem to read and then they had to decide which one of them would act out what the other Beaver was ready. They all did exceptionally well and the reading was excellent. Sorry the photograph is a bit blurred.
