We started the term off with a pioneering challenge, we made catapults out of spoons, pencils and a lot of rubber bands. We had great fun making them and firing pompoms across the hall and had a competition whose went furthest.
We have been working hard on our cooking badge this term, we have made pitta bread pizzas, had haggis for burns night and played some fun haggis related games and made some of our own tartan, made a stir fry for Chinese New Year and we really enjoyed making pancakes and making topping to go on them. As well as the fun cooking side we have also learnt the importance of being clean and staying safe in the kitchen as well as learning how to cook yummy food and its good to try new things even if we are not sure.
We are continuing to work on our Challenge badges and with a few more nights of work to finish off the last few bits some of the older beavers will have earnt all their challenge badges and will be awarded the Chief’s scout bronze which is the highest award they can get in Beavers.
We have had quite a busy first couple of months to kick off the new year. We had another brilliant STEM night learning how to use Lego Mindstorms with a team from the RAF teaching us team work, coding and problem solving.
We also learnt bike safety and maintenance from the South Gloucestershire council. All the scouts had a go at finding and repairing a puncher as well as looking after and making sure their bike is safe to use.
To prepare for upcoming camps we are still working on our cooking and completing our chef badge. We have made some lovely stir fry for Chinese new year and managed to cook a burns night supper of Haggis,neeps and tatties, entertained everyone with some wonderful highland dancing then sat down for the meal.
We invaded the clip and climb in Bristol to have a practice at climbing before our indoor climbing camp coming up at the end of march. They all had a really good go at climbing on the different walls and setting each other challenges and times to try and beat to make it more of competition.
We have just returned from our first camp of the year, a very successful weekend in Brecon with Thursday scouts. We slept inside the farm house and as treated to some very good meals cooked by the scouts. We managed to dodge the major storms and just had a little rain on the walks, we walked up Pen Y Crug and then on in to Brecon on the Saturday and had a local adventure on the Sunday investigating the woods and walk ways near where we were staying and finding all the frog spawn with much excitement.
