Cub Meetings in March

1st March – Home Skills Challenge

We will be making a hot drink with adult help and laying your table ready for if you were about to have dinner. If you don’t have a table use your imagination and use something else like your desk or lap tray.

Then we will be having fun removing your bedding and putting on clean sheets and there will be an extra bonus point if you load the washing machine!

8th March – Skills Challenge

This week we’ll be learning a new sport! We will be taking part in an activity video led by a professional instructor to learn how to warm up before exercise and learn a bit of Tai Chi.

15th March – Physical Recreation

Cubs should take part in a 3 month sport or activity and can use last week’s Tai Chi activity that they can improve on. If they can take photos or videos of their improvements and send it to [email protected] 

22nd March – Local Knowledge

Cubs should find out what Bedworth Coat of Arms represents and where would you find it.

Do they know any famous people from Bedworth?

We’ll then be making a poster that advertises Bedworth.

29th March – Games Night

We’ll be having a bit of a games night. You won’t need anything extra this week!
