“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’.
Wednesday Beavers Monthly Blog…
We started Feb off with a fitness evening, good for getting rid of some of that energy, we also invested 7 new Beavers, who are settling in well and enjoying it. After half term we made paper planes and flew them inside and out to see what difference it made, this will go to their Air Activities badge. Last week we decorated and flew dragon gliders and talked about St David’s Day.
THURSDAY BEAVERS MONTHLY BLOG…
To begin February, we had a first aid themed evening where we learnt about the importance of phoning the emergency services, how to apply a bandage properly, the recovery position and made sure that we all knew our home addresses.
The week after we had an evening of song writing, where we wrote our own songs in groups and presented them to the rest of the colony. We then invested our five newest members before ending for half term.
After half term, for our final meeting of February we headed out to Gloucestershire Airport to visit the Jet Age Museum as part of our Air Activities badge. We learned about the development of aviation from the beginning of the First World War, including the development of the jet engine by Gloucester Aircraft Company at Brockworth, right up to the introduction of fully automatic landings for civil aircraft, exploring aircraft by getting hands on in the cockpits!
