The First Thornton Brownies unit works through a new guiding challenge.
Thornton’s very own Brownie unit is growing from strength to strength as it comes up to its first year anniversary and the enrolled girls are revelling in lots of new activities.
Currently, they are working through the Wonderland Challenge, which links to popular children’s book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. A fun and quirky badge, it involves a cross-section of elements to encourage Brownies to be creative and sociable.
This week, the girls enjoyed their own version of the Mad Hatters tea party, with many of them dressing in character as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Alice and the Mad Hatter himself.
In previous sessions, they acted out key chapters from Lewis Carroll’s book – in silence – with the rest of the group encouraged to guess who they were. They also played a game called Who Stole The Tarts and they rose to the challenge of building a house of cards.
Coming up, the girls will be taking a walk by torchlight towards the walled garden and wooded area of the school grounds while on the hunt for luminous Cheshire Cats!
The Brownies meet every Tuesday after school, 4.15pm to 5.45pm. All girls aged seven to 10 are welcome to come along.
