Our Beavers have started the new year on the right foot by revisiting and revising our Code of Conduct. They also got outside for a glowstick trail in the dark!
Code of Conduct
Many sections and groups have a Code of Conduct. It allows our Beavers to decide for themselves how they should conduct themselves. Within reason, anyway! It really helps to promote good and productive behaviour. Basically, the Beavers think about what it means to be a good Scout. Part of this means being a good friend.
The Beavers were split into two groups. They then took turns to work with us to think and log chew about how we should behave at Beavers. So, we had some simple bullet points and put together to form a new Code of Conduct. This applies to adults too!
Beavers are well known for being thoughtful, and this was no exception. It was good to see how many duplicate suggestions we had, because this means that the Beavers are thinking along the same lines. In the end, we had some really good suggestions. These were written out nicely and mounted onto a display. We are going to put this on our notice board.
For more information, please see http://www.scouts.org.uk/behaviour and most of all let us know if you have any thoughts or comments.
The Beavers who were not working on the Code of Conduct went outside. A Leader had laid a trail of glowsticks. These formed proper tracking signs. Some of the signs had letters by them. The Beavers had to spot these letters and tell us what they spelled (TRACKING).
It was cold and rather icy. The Beavers enjoyed following the signs though. I think it was just good to be outside on a crisp evening.
In conclusion, great Scouting, Beavers. So, see you all next week!
