Add 6pm the new students arrived for their camp at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Walking through the magic portal at Platform 9 3/4 the Beavers entered the main hall where they were sorted into the 4 Houses.
Once unpacked we went for a magic camp fire and hot dogs.
The next morning we went for a walk in the forbidden forest before a hearty breakfast.
We designed our own House Crests played Quiditch and eat soooo much food.
As Chinese New Year is tomorrow we decided to give the Beavers a small taste of Chinese Culture.
They made red gift envelopes, tried some authentic Chinese food (not fro the take away), had a go at adding up in the Chinese style, did some colouring & demonstrated their skills with chop sticks
On Monday the Beavers were very fortunate to be allowed in to the Patchway Fire station for a guided tour and to learn all about fire safety. The Beavers learnt about the tings, other that putting out fires, that the fire service might be called out to deal with. We learnt about fire safety in our homes and inspected the main fire engine. All the Beavers (and leaders) were very well behaved and at the end we said a very large THANK YOU to the firemen for letting us into their station.
The Beavers spent Saturday night at the panto watching Cinderella. Everyone was exceeding well behaved and had a great time.
A big thank you to Helen for organising the night, especially the ice cream during the interval.
Same again next year please.
