Back in March each six from the 5th Dartford Scout Group’s Leigh Cub Pack planted potato seeds, which we grew and tended outside the hall and last week we dug them up and had a weigh in with a total of over 5kg (10lbs.)
Philpott Colony learn about Cats
Louisa Beyer from Cats Protection visited Philpott Colony on Thursday 7th July 2016 and gave the Beavers a very interesting talk about looking after cats and their behaviour. The talk involved big pictures and interaction with the boys. Some very unusual questions were put forward by the boys at the end including “Do cats and dogs have DNA like humans do”
PHILPOTT BEAVERS GO INTO THE WOODS AT JOYDENS WOOD SATURDAY 25TH JUNE 2016
A colony of 13 Beavers were found entering the woods at Joydens Wood on Saturday afternoon. After a short walk deep into the woods they stopped to search for mini-beasts and build a dam across the water filled bomb crater whilst slipping and sliding in the mud and listening to rumbles of thunder above. After studying their mini-beasts through magnifying glasses they were returned to their natural habitat and the Beavers moved on.
On Friday 17th June 2016 Edwards Beavers went on their first sleepover at Scout House.
We arrived at 6pm and set up our beds, we were then ready to start tackling activities to help us gain our Outdoor Challenge Badge.
On Wednesday 15th June, Helen from Tesco’s visited Phillips pack & introduced the cubs to feel, smell & taste different fruits, cheeses & breads.
Helen asked the cubs to write down words to describe the food they tasted.
The final activity was to feel & smell a sprat fish.
All the cubs were given a goody bag to take home with them.
