This week the Beavers were working for their Air Activity Badge.   There were four different things they had to do


1          Make an aeroplane out of paper

2          See how far it would fly and then try to fly it over the beam in the Ranche

3           Learn about different types of  aeroplane and tell us where they have been on an aeroplane

4           Learn how to apply the phonetic alphabet and then write their name using this alphabet and answer some questions on the phonetic alphabet.

To start the meeting this week, the Beavers coloured in a picture of a super hero.      They were  asked to bring along some junk (egg boxes, boxes etc) that they could make into a vehicle for their super hero, with moving parts.   All the Beavers did extremely well with the task

This week we had a week where we played games.  The Beavers certainly ran off some of their energy.

As this was our first week back, we had a night of games and a fire drill.   Welcome to Josie and William new Beavers this week.   We also said goodbye to Kaleb and Xanthe as they continued their scouting journey into Cubs.  We wish them a happy time as they move on.

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.

Wed 12th June Father's Day Card

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.
