7th Bicester Scouts plus provisional programme Autumn 2020
This term we anticipate that most of our meetings will be on zoom, supplemented with the occasional outdoor meeting. Mostly, we will be back to meeting fortnightly. Zoom meetings will be at 6.00-6.30, outside meetings will be 6.00-6.45. Before each outdoor meeting, please check your emails to make sure it is still going ahead.
For each zoom meeting, Scouts need a pencil & paper.
|28/8||Zoom. Mental wellbeing and a film quiz. Please print the chatterbox template.|
|4/9||We will be walking part of the Langford blue line. Meet in Gavray Drive near the junction with Mallard Way. Please sign up in advance for this. If we have to cancel, we will make the microwave cake this week instead, so please have the ingredients ready.|
|18/9||Zoom. Cooking – microwave mug cake (or walk if last week’s was cancelled).|
|25/9||Zoom meeting with the main Troop at 7.00-7.30 for a ‘7th’s Got Talent Show’. Scouts can prepare an item for this, lasting between 1 & 3 minutes. It could be a song, jokes, magic tricks, playing an instrument, reading a poem, puppet show, gymnastics, dance or martial arts demonstration (please risk assess this with your son/daughter first!). If they don’t want to participate, they can just watch but please encourage them to give it a go. Parents and siblings are also welcome to watch.|
|2/10||Outside meeting. Make a mini catapult and observation trail. If we have to cancel, we will meet on zoom, so the materials for the catapult will be included in the activity kit. If it is dry, please bring these with you.|
|16/10||Zoom. Design a felt pencil case. Materials in the activity pack. Depending on their sewing skills, they might need some help this week!|
The activity packs contain materials for some of the zoom meetings. After these meetings, we will email instructions for the activity, so that Scouts who don’t like zoom, or who missed the meeting can still take part. Although it seems very unlikely at the moment, if Scout Readiness Levels change and we are can meet all the new requirements, we may be able to start some meetings inside. If this happens, Scouts would need to bring their activity pack with them, so please don’t use the materials in advance!
