Beaver News - 1st Stretford (Longford) Scout Group

Last week we forgot to take photos but enjoyed a night hike around the park, finding and collecting glow sticks on the way.

In honour of St Andrew’s Day, we held our own Highland Games this week. We played a sheep shearing relay race game with pegs, held a tug of war tournament and tried our hand at caber tossing and welly wanging. 
On Wednesday we gave out another Bronze Award.

The Beavers learned about Diwali to complete 2 more clauses of our My World challenge badge. We played an action story game, made diya lamps out of clay and tried some yoga! On Monday, another Bronze badge was awarded, the highest award a Beaver can earn.

Several weeks ago the Beavers were asked to draw a plan of a model they could make with recyclable material. This week they brought in any material they had and made the model they had planned. This is part of the Builder Challenge
