All our sections are now meeting every week either on-line or outside face to face or both. As the evenings draw in, we are working with St Michaels Guides and Brownies to put measures in place to make sure we can start to meet safely in the hall. Plans change regularly as we adapt to latest advice from Government, the National Youth Agency and the Scout Association. Parents should lookout for emails from the leaders to keep up to date.
Three new Beavers were invested during this week's Beaver meeting.
The theme of our recent Friday Beaver meetings has been the countries that make up the UK. This week it was Wales and the Beavers made welsh cakes together.
One of our Scouts even manged to sneak in on the act.
Our Friday Beavers were challenged to build some shelters and sleep in them.
The Scouts have been being creative with computers for the Digital Maker badge. They had to design characters and graphics for a computer game as well as learn about coding.
This gave our older leaders an excuse to bore the Scouts with tails of when they were a lad etc. It did give one of them the opportunity to demonstrate that after 40 years he still knows how to program a Sinclair ZX81! Typical of our Scout leaders to use a badge designed to demonstrate that Scouting is a modern relevant organisation to talk about ancient history.
This week the Scouts have been getting creative making sculptures out of Salt Dough together. We had a wide variety of creative ideas but at the end of the day, it was just nice to be able to do something creative together.
Our Friday Beavers have been learning about tracking symbols and practicing making them.
Our Friday Beavers spent the meeting making animals out of objects found in thir recycling bins.
This week the Scouts have been brushing up on their first aid knowledge and skills.
Our Friday Beavers have been learning about endangered species.
