We managed to have a full term in person again, yes we had girls needing to isolate at points during the term, but overall we were able to meet together and get back to some more normality.
This term was crazy; Cloudy had her baby girl, we celebrated the Queen’s birthday, we completed a Skills Builder, lots of UMAs, 2 fun badges and we had an in-person outdoor event and a virtual sleepover!!
At the end of term we said goodbye to 17 girls who are moving on to Brownies. Some of these girls have held on for a space for the last year, and to have a little bit of normality before moving on. It’s been lovely to have them, but we know they’ll have so much more fun moving on to Brownies. We’re so proud of how they’ve shown such great resilience through their 18 months of zoom and social distance.
From these 17 girls we handed out Gold Awards to Amber, Catriona, Kaitlyn, Isabella O and Jasmine S, Silver Awards to Isabella C, Poppy and Ariah. Bronze Awards to Freya and Ellenor-May. Well Done to all you – you have worked so hard and achieved so much. It’s been so lovely to see the boost in confidence and we can’t wait to hear what you get up to at Brownies.
We’re now spending the summer preparing for next term, recruiting new Rainbows to join in the fun and creating resources. All using ideas the girls have shared with us, because they really do design their own activities.
