Beavers

“I promise to do my best; To be kind and helpful; And to love God” – The Beaver Promise

We run two Beaver Colonies at Randwick Scout Group – one on a Wednesday evening and one on a Thursday evening. Each colony is run by a Leader who is supported by parent helpers. Our Leaders plan and organise a varied and exciting programme of termly activities.

As the youngest members of Randwick Scout Group, Beavers are encouraged to participate in creative tasks, explore their local community and join in community activities. Beavers gain badges to recognise their achievements and are also able to camp under the stars with their friends at ‘Beaver Camp’.

We started the month with making pasta skeletons and painting them. We have been doing more team games and invested 6 new Beavers. The last week before half term we welcomed Sheila Barnfield who gave a talk about the Guide Dogs.

October began by making the most of what was left of the summer light by going on a flour trail around Westrip and towards Randwick. This was a first for us as a Beaver Colony and despite the drizzle it went very well with no false sense of direction and plenty of time for a rest at the top of Ash Lane.

The following week was a games night where the Beavers chose their own gams to play as a group, which was a fantastic evening given it was largely self-led!

For the penultimate week before half term, we began work on our Space activity badge. We did a quiz on general facts about space, and then used similar knowledge to play a game on facts about our solar system.

For the last meeting of the term we took part in UK Parliament week (albeit a week early!). We looked at why people vote, and what a debate is before holding two practice debates on whether Jaffa Cakes are cakes or biscuits, or whether homework should be allowed.
