Autumn term 2019

What a busy term we’ve had!

Starting off the term by exploring our local area, we visited St Margaret’s Church and Buxted Park for a treasure hunt.

Both Monday and Thursday beaver groups joined together for some rather wet wide games at Hadlow Down rec.

We also joined with the Cubs Scouts and Explorers for a Remembrance Day parade.

Then before the nights got too dark, we had fun building bridges over a stream near the hut, then testing them to see whose was strongest.

We’ve had fun inside too, learning to tie knots then using them to build catapults.

We also found out more about homelessness and food poverty, and made a ‘reverse advent calendar’ to donate to Uckfield food bank.

Healthy food

This week we found out about some healthy foods, and made our own mini-pizzas and fruit kebabs. We learnt to use sharp knives safely and remembered to keep our cooking areas clean.

Over the last 2 weeks, beavers have been building mini rafts. But whose would be able to transport its cargo without getting it wet?

Renewal of Promises

Our second day of Beaver camp combined with the Scout Group’s annual Renewal of Promises.

After a fun morning of activities, the Cubs and Scouts joined us for some fun and games before we came together to think about the story of St George, brilliantly told by Steve and some Scouts, and to renew the promises we have made as Scouts.

The Story of St George

So this week, in preparation for our Renewal of Promises on Sunday, we found out more about St. George, the patron saint of Scouts. We had fun making knights’ shields and holding a jousting tournament on space-hoppers!

This week, the Beavers worked together to build a rocket, which we took outside to launch. There were some super fliers!
