District Cub Scrapheap Challenge 2023

Well done to all of the Cubs that took part in the first ever Sheaf District Cub Scrapheap Challenge hosted at 297th Bradway HQ.

This years theme: Famous UK Buildings.

Cubs first planned out their structures and then had one hour to complete the challenge by using materials from the District Scrapheap pile.

Points were awarded for:

  • General behaviour during the Challenge (listening to instructions, waiting patiently, doing as they are told)
  • Planning the making of the model (drawing a picture, labelling it, writing a list of equipment that they need)
  • Making the model (does it look like what it’s meant to be, does it hold together, decoration)
  • Team work (discussing with their partner, planning and building together, no arguing)
  • Interpretation of the story and appropriateness of the model (it needs to be connected!)
  • Clearing up afterwards (making their own area tidy, putting their model neatly, helping others if they finish)

Well done to our 1st Place winners at St. Chads, followed closely in 2nd Place by Greenhill Methodist and in 3rd Place Team B from St. Pauls. Congratulations to Bradway Group A who received a group commendation.

The Cubs that took part had a great time, and are already planning what they will be doing next year! Thanks to all the leaders who helped out to support the day, and many thanks to the parent helpers who also helped support the teams.
