1st Irby Rainbows
We have a very active and varied programme planned during each term. Last year the Rainbows earned various Rainbow Roundabout badges and took part in challenges including the Claire House Challenge and Superhero Challenge.
The Rainbow leader stepped down after nearly 30 years and another leader who had finished university took over as leader with 2 new leaders in training to support her. We have 20 girls meeting each week making new friends and learning about the Guiding family.
We have joint sessions during the term with the other local Rainbow unit including trips to a pantomime and local farm. Christmas Activity day was spent making crafts, reindeer food and receiving a gift from Santa after sending him our letters by special delivery.
2nd Irby Brownies
During the past few months the girls had a weekend away in Shrewsbury and just prior to Christmas a visit to the lanterns at Chester Zoo followed by a sleepover in the Church Hall with some of the Guides. They have covered many badges and enjoyed several outings including Claremont Farm, Riverview Park, The Butterfly Park and pond dipping locally at Thurstaston Country Park. We look forward to making more memories for our young people.
2nd Irby Guides
Our Guides have been involved with many nature activities including making bird feeders, woodland art and games by torchlight in the local woods. (Very well supervised and risk assessed! 😊)
We visited Chester Zoo for the lanterns prior to Christmas, followed by a sleepover. We have not long completed the Clever Clogs Engineering Programme which included many activities such as an Drop Challenge and making “Slime”. Recently we covered our Thinking Day theme of our “Impact” on others around us and on our environment. Very thought provoking. Since Easter we have been “getting active” and looking at water safety.
