Tesco Sustainability trail
We visited Tesco where Caroline and Jackie told us about sustainability and took us behind the scenes! After looking round to find as many Fairtrade and Rainforest symbols on products we visited the bakery and the fish counter as well as the big freezer which was REALLY cold!
We went on pack holiday with our older brownies for a Scooby Doo pack holiday in Long Ashton. The brownies had fun making moster costumes and playing mummy wrap as well as identifying each other by fingerprints and making neckties and scooby doo crafts.
We talked about sustainability and looked at how bananas are produced.
We split into groups and talked about the various stages of banana production using these CAFOD resources Banana split game banana-split-game.
We did think that the growers should get a lot more.
Seasons badge – Autumn
We did two autumn activities today for our seasons badge.
We had fun making apple dumplings.
We also made Autumn leaf decorations to hang up like Autumn leaf accordian banner except we used water soluble felt pens and painted water on them.
Back this week. Finishing off our Senior Section Spectacular badge we made badges with wool and other materials.
Bring your pets evening
As the last meeting of the term we wanted to have a ‘bring your pets’ evening.
We had dogs, a cat, rabbits, a hamster, guinea pigs and giant snails brought in and found out about a dog and a cat who couldn’t visit as well.
It was fun stroking the pets and finding out about them from their owners.
Some of us started work on our Friend to Animals badge.
We all have the chance to do our Booklover badge over the holiday and do the Summer Reading Challenge as well at the same time.
The new brownies practiced their promise and chatted about what they would like to do at brownies.
We all made papel picado bunting which looked great to decorate the room for the new brownies making their promise today.
