Some Beavers took the opportunity to look after their pets and tell us all about them.  We also learned about endangered animals and created some fab posters.

Saturday 8.3.2014 – Follow-up trip to the Farm

A little bit hotter than last time, but still great.  We built a composting area and collected loads of rubbish to compost.  After spending so much time with Sprout Middle East 6 of our Beavers managed to earn their Environment Partnership Award, well done!

A tasty evening of fruit kebabs and farewell to Lucille/”Owl” cake, thanks for all your efforts with the Beavers Lucille, you will be missed.

20.3.2014 The Country Code

Beavers learned about the country code and acted out various rules to see who could guess what they were doing…remember rubbish goes in a bin or take it home with you!  We also said farewell to our oldest Beaver who swam up to Cubs today.
