Beavers – Summer 1

Welcome back to a new term.
We will be working on the following badges between now and the summer holiday’s
* space activity badge
* sports activity badge
* Gardeners activity badge
* Adventure challenge badge

I only have 3 dates so far where we know exactly what is happening:
Friday 5th May – we will start our Gardeners badge
Friday 12th May – is our annual camp so there will be no session for the beavers that are not attending
Friday 26th May – Group Jumpstatic – this is now booked and paid for so, unfortunately, we cannot add any more children.

There will be lots of things coming up that i am just waiting to finalise dates, they are:
* Farm to fork with Tesco – i originally had this booked for June 2nd but then i come to realise that this is half term so i am just waiting for them to get back to me with another date they can do.
* we will be going up to robinswood hill to do some shelter building for our adventure challenge badge.
*we will be doing a sports day before we break up for the summer holidays.
*I am hoping to reschedule the space badge over the next couple of terms as he had cancelled on us last term and hopefully instead of him coming to us we can go to the Mount Tuffley observatory and see the telescopes.
* Annoushksa has invited us to her college where there will some circus activities for the beavers to do, i am just waiting for Annouskha to give us some dates that hopefully we can work around.

Subs will now be due £15 for the first child and £12.50 for subsequent children (younger). This will take you to the May half term.
