Beavers - Sunflowers

In February, our Monday and Wednesday Beavers planted sunflower seeds and took them home to look after. Let's see how their flowers are doing now!

Mon 16th March Mother's Day Gift

This Monday the Beavers made a Mother's Day Gift. Unfortunately this will be the last Beaver Meeting for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus. We hope to be able to let you know soon what you can be doing to make progress with your Challenge Awards and Activity Badges during the enforced break in Scouting Activities.

This week the Beavers completed the second part of the Faith Activity Badge which involved a visit to a Place of Worship. In this case we chose a place where there is a newish Scout Group connected to it. This is Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple pn Stretford Rd., Old Trafford. We were met by one of the Cub Leaders of their Scout Group. They don't have Beavers, yet. He took us into their Library and explained how Buddhism came about. Then followed a look round other parts of the building including the main prayer area which is magnificent. Thank you to our hosts for explaining Buddhism and showing us round.

This week the Beavers started working towards their Faith Badge.    They were asked to write a thought (or prayer) for the day and were given the beginning of the sentence.   The three lines were Thank you for ..............Sorry that....................Please help.................     The Beavers did well in writing their thoughts.   Following this they were read a short story and had to act it out in front of all the other Beavers.   All the lodges did extremely  well.

This week the Beavers planted a Sunflower seed.    They were challenged to see who could produce the tallest sunflower, by careful attention to watering.    We asked that they have a photograph taken, when the flower grows and we will give a prize to whoever grows the tallest flower.   We then had a fun night of games.

This week the Beavers had to do a performance or play as part of their Creative Activity Badge.   They were split into lodges and given parts to read of a play about a bear.  They all did very well

Mon 3rd Feb Creative Activity

This week the Beavers are doing part of their Creativity Activity Badge. unfortunately I was so interested in their creativity with the poem they were interpreting that I did not take any pictures of that part of the evening but I did get this picture of a game being played where one Lodge runs round the circle while the others are catching a ball being thrown by a Leader. The lowest scoring Lodge wins.
