Mission 1

  1. 1. Mission 1
  2. 2. Mission 1 This was the first night solely run by explorers in our group’s history. We did not have a definite theme, apart from to show the scouts some of our own favourite troop activities from when were Scouts Plan 1 Evenings programme 1 Risk Assessment 1 Evaluation 1 Winter 2008 2 nd Wym Scouts Explorer’s Night
  3. 3. Mission 1
  4. 4. Mission 1
  5. 5. Mission 1
  6. 6. <ul><li>Evaluation 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Overall I believe the evening was a success, and we received largely positive feedback from the scouts. </li></ul><ul><li>We chose “Hurricanes and Spitfires” because it is an old favourite of our group, played and enjoyed both now and when the Young Leaders were scouts as well. Most of them were familiar with the rules, which made it quicker and easier to arrange. Another aspect that makes it easier to prepare is that it requires very little equipment, (just a few foam footballs). It works well as a warm up game, because it is energetic and has a fast pace. We also like it because it is as much fun for the leaders as for the scouts. </li></ul><ul><li>The ballistas is another favourite of the group, and is easy to prepare because it is largely self explanatory. After the patrols build their ballistae we have a competition to see which one will fire a cane furthest down the hall We felt this encouraged competition which would make the scouts more motivated. </li></ul><ul><li>What was surprising was when given the choice between conkers (initially fun fulfils little badge work criteria) and planning to gain their Faith Partnership award (not very fun but more useful), they all chose to discuss the badge work. For some of them this may just be a case of following the crowd, but the troop as a whole demonstrated a maturity that surprised me. On the other hand had they not been distracted and talking amongst themselves all night, their may have been time to do both. </li></ul><ul><li>A general disappointment was that we did not theme the evening, we chose activities we felt they would enjoy, and that we could do effectively. But there was no central theme to the evening. In the future I would decide on a theme before deciding anything else about the meeting. </li></ul>Mission 1
  7. 7. In preparation for a survival themed camp later in the year, the group was aiming to complete several core scouting badges, including First Aid. Plan 2 Evenings programme 2 Risk Assessment 2 Evaluation 2 Mission 1 Spring 2009 2 nd Wym Scouts First Aid

  11. 11. <ul><li>Evaluation 2 </li></ul><ul><li>What have I done? </li></ul><ul><li>Plan and run as part of a leadership team, a meeting for the scouts on first aid. </li></ul><ul><li>· Why did I do it? </li></ul><ul><li>Our new influx of scouts had very little core scouting skills, which I wanted to correct. </li></ul><ul><li>· What did I want to achieve? </li></ul><ul><li>Across a two week program, for every scout who attended both to earn the first 3 first aid staged badges. </li></ul><ul><li>· What did the Section members get from it? </li></ul><ul><li>A knowledge of first aid, that earned them the badges we had set out to for them to achieve </li></ul><ul><li>· What did I learn from it? </li></ul><ul><li>Many of the scouts seemed bored with the sessions, this may have more to do with our method of teaching, which was quite dull. Although a more interactive session could have made them overexcited and lost some of the crucial message </li></ul><ul><li>· What would I do differently next time? </li></ul><ul><li>A few months later, we ran an evening to test whether they retained what we taught them, we found that much of what was taught was forgotten within the time. With hindsight, more visual interactive instruction was probably needed </li></ul><ul><li>· How do I feel about it now? </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps we focused to much attention on achieving the badges, and didn’t consider whether we were teaching in a way that would stick. </li></ul>Mission 1

  16. 16. <ul><li>What have I done? </li></ul><ul><li>Plan and run as part of a leadership team, a meeting for the cubs on Japan and Japanese culture </li></ul><ul><li>· Why did I do it? </li></ul><ul><li>Earlier on in the year we had a Chinese evening that they enjoyed, and I decided to combine this with my passion for Japan. It </li></ul><ul><li>· What did I want to achieve? </li></ul><ul><li>For the cubs to discover something new about Japan, to try some new things, and contribute towards their global challenge </li></ul><ul><li>· What did the Section members get from it? </li></ul><ul><li>A greater knowledge of a new country and culture. Some exercise/relaxation techniques they may choose to practice further. Craft skills in origami. </li></ul><ul><li>· What did I learn from it? </li></ul><ul><li>There is no point making a precisely exact timetable, real life isn’t like that. Even with an extra 15 minutes gained at the start, it was still a bit of a rush to tidy up in time for scouts to start afterwards. </li></ul><ul><li>Reinforced that not every cub will enjoy everything </li></ul><ul><li>· What would I do differently next time? </li></ul><ul><li>Allow more time for flexibility as some activities overran slightly </li></ul><ul><li>Ask leaders about anything else important on that night, I did not know there was going to be a badge presentation </li></ul><ul><li>Offer an adaptation of the programme to the scouts, as all the equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Possibly introduce some degree of choice within the evening, for those who are not interested in a particular activity </li></ul><ul><li>· How do I feel about it now? </li></ul><ul><li>I was very happy to have finally pulled it off; it was probably six months from the original idea to the night. This meant I was able to take more time to prepare and consider other ideas (e.g. martial arts and a sectional forum on visiting other countries) </li></ul>Mission 1
