For world thinking day 2013 the Brownies from Girton and Oakington had a joint meeting. The girls took part in a variety of activities: decorating biscuits, making paper promise torches, colouring in good turn owls, making promise hands and writing letters to Malala.
We also used the evening to do some fund raising for Malaria Relief and Comic Relief. The oakington Brownies paid £1 to come in non-uniform and all the girls bought 1p and 2p coins to cover the words World Thinking Day 2013. We managed to cover the words 4 times and raised a total of £40.70 which was divided between the two charities.
Each Brownie Six chose a different country, and found out some information. They all found out about the Brownies in that country and brought in some food. They also found out some more interesting facts to share.
The Imps and their Hawaii display. We enjoyed eating the mango and pineapple.
The Gnomes with their information about Canada and Canadian Brownies, and of course the delicious pancakes with maple syrup
Our theme this term is International Culture, so in our first meeting, the girls designed costumes from around the world out of newspaper. Can you see the Inuit, and the Scottish bagpipes? There is also a French girl, a Spanish girl and an Indian girl.
This week the Rainbows made Christmas decorations for the Christmas tree with pine cones and tissue paper of different colours. The girls loved making them and were singing ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’ while they where doing it.
2nd Histon Brownies attended the Remembrance Day Parade on 11th November. Charlotte carried our flag, and Lydia presented the posy. Here we are with the poppy display we made at Brownies. Each poppy is in memory of one of the soldiers of Histon and Impington who died in the 1st World War.
Welcome Back Rainbows!
Well today we talked to the Rainbows about why we have Remembrance Day. One Rainbow explained it really well to the other Rainbows saying, “It is to remember the soldiers that died in the war.”
Then we did a poppy activity where the girls used a potato stamp in black paint for the middle of the poppy, red card for the petals of the poppy, and green paint for the stems. These look very nice.
Next week is the Rainbow Promises Party.
This is a Royal Legion Poppy
