Thorpe Cub Pack

Welcome back to Cubs - Term 4

Dear Parents,

Another busy term awaits us!
The Term 4 Program will be attached soon!
Please take note of the additional dates on the program which are in different colours. These are all events that your Cub may be involved in, and for which additional information and/or a CareMonkey notice will be sent out as the time approaches.
Please encourage your Cub to check the website (www.bpp.org.au) for the webword competition each week.
A few reminders...
* Please ensure your Cub's shirt, scarf and woggle are clearly marked with your name. Preferably on the corner under the BPP badge so that it can be easily checked.
* Also, in order for us to start on time please either chat to us at the end of the night or contact us via phone or message if you have any concerns.  The 10-15 minutes before we start Cubs is valuable prep time for us Leaders.
 
Many thanks for your ongoing support. 
Yours in Scouting
Your Thorpe Leaders

Thorpe Tips for Parents!

Hi Mums and Dads,

*** Please encourage Cubs to check the website weekly for the WEBWORD.  This will also give you a chance to check for any info you may have missed via email. We will do our best to post any emails we send out onto our website, usually as first article.

*** The Cub den gets a bit crazy on Tuesday nights but our aim is to give your child a fantastic Scouting experience so if you don't get an opportunity to speak to us then, about any issues you may have, please don't hesitate to ring/sms a Leader during the week. (Contact Nos are on bottom of program).

*** When we meet at the Beach Hall in Summer terms remember to pack a bag with bathers, towel and beach shoes. Hopefully there'll be a chance for a swim.

Yours in Cubbing!

Cub Fun on Holidays

TONGUE TWISTERS!

How about making up your own tongue twister & try it out on your family or friends.  Here are some fun examples.

 

  1. Hairy Henry Hartley hurried home. 

  2. Seven silky skunks sighed sadly. 

  3. On Tuesday, Timmy told two tall tales to Tommy. 

  4. Fast Frank fries frankfurters and french fries. 

  5. Slippery snakes slide swiftly down ski slopes.

 

Thorpe Talk

 

School Holiday Fun!

          What's your thing??   

SPORT?   READING?   CAMPING?   COOKING?   ART/DRAMA?   COMPUTERS?

          Did you know? .......                 

 Your YELLOW book is full of great ideas to fill those days when not much is happening!

         Go to page 62 and put a mark next to all the badges that might interest you.

          Come on...there's got to be a couple that jump out at you!

 For the outdoorsy Cubs, how about collecting some leaves, seeds, shells or rocks, see page 122 for Naturalist badge.

Love reading?  List the last few books you've read, visit the library ... visit page 114 ... Literature badge

Feeling creative? Page 67 or 116 will give you some ideas – create a cartoon character; make a collage of interesting papers, photos or magazine pictures; visit an art gallery.  Or, make a mask or a soap carving  ... Art & Design, Masks & Sculpture

Sporty Cubs – turn to page 134, easy peasy.

The World Friendship badge is a good one. You could start up a scrapbook, see page 143.

OR

Ask if you can use the computer and send us leaders an email with some smiley faces and create a document following instructions on page 109 ….   You guessed it – IT badge!

                                                      *** HAVE SOME FUN, AND EARN YOURSELF A BADGE ***
