This week we had a visit from a lady who worked in the community. She volunteered at the Chorlton Food Bank. She bought a selection of food that would be given to people/families who came to the bank. She also asked that each Beaver would bring an item of tinned food next week that would be donated to the food bank

Mon 1st July Food Bank

The intention was to run the Obstacle Course outdoors but the weather intervened with rain and so in the interest of safety we set up indoors with the Beetle Drive in the Denis Taylor room. So that the Beavers are not hanging around for too long without doing anything we pair the Obstacle Course with usually a Beetle Drive.

The Beavers were given three different themes for their card together with appropriate wording to stick on. All they had to do was to decorate the card and add any personal wording.

Mon 10th June Father's Day card

As Father's Day falls next Sunday we decided that it would be appropriate to make a card. The Beavers were given a choice of three different designs. They went to the appropriate table and started work.

3rd June Orienteering

Each Lodge was given a map and a list of simple grid references. The principals of working out where a grid reference related to were explained to them. Then with their adult "minders" they were advised to plot the references and work out a route that covered each point. These were all in Longford Park. Then wearing high vis vests they set out to answer the questions. Most Lodges managed to find all the answers but Thrush Lodge were the first back with all the right answers.

Mon 20th May Edible Volcano

This was something which we had not done for some time. The Beavers were given an ice cream cone. Most then bit the top off, as advised, The hole was secured with a marshmallow and then melted chocolate was dribbled over it to represent the lava flowing from the cone of the volcano. Simple but effective.

This week the Beavers were learning about Teeth, Exercise and Food. They all made a set of teeth, using cardboard and marshmallows and learnt about the different teeth. They talked about different kinds of food and which was good and healthy and which were bad for them. They then went outside and did some exercise.
The week the Beavers were learning about teeth, food and health. They identified the different teeth and then made a set of teeth mounted on card and using marshmallows for the teeth. They talked about the different types of food and which were healthy and which were quite bad for them. The third group went outside and did some exercises.
