There are so many beautiful rainbows filling up windows around the UK but we've started to see these fab Scouts pictures popping up too! A great way to show that The Scouts support the fantastic work our country's important key workers do every day. Why not grab your crayons, pencils or pens and have a go? We'd love to see any finished pictures – email them in so we can add them to our Facebook group :)

JOTI is live!

Parents, if you sign up on behalf of your cub, they can meet other Scouts and Cubs from all around the world in a special International Scouting Event! This is an event I've been looking at getting us involved in for a few years, nows your chaance to get ahead and experience something not many of your peers have!

Let us know if you join and what countries you manage to talk to!

This weekend is a special edition of Jamboree on the Internet, a place where you can talk to Scouts all around the world. I encourage you to look into it and for the Cubs to join in, however the official rules are anyone under the age of 13 must be supervised by an adult at all times. A fellow leader has created this parents guide which guides you through the process making sure your Cub is safe at all times. Have a read through and see JOTI is for you.

Activity 2 comes from The Scouts Great Indoors, follow the instructions on the link and submit evidence through here or OSM

Activity 3

Learn how to take your pulse, using two fingers either on your wrist or neck. Get someone to help you if need be. Once you've found it get someone to time 30 seconds. Count the heartbeats you feel for those 30 seconds after you've been sitting down for a while. Times this number by 2. This is your resting heart rate in bpm.

Do some excersize (maybe Joe Wicks PE or a game of football). half way through measure your heart rate again. Is the number different to before?

After you've finished take your heart rate again. Is this number different to before?

Have a rest for 5 minutes and take your heart rate one more time. Is the number different again.

What does this all mean?

Alex Matthews Compare your heart rates to other peoples. Mine are below:
Resting: 64
During excersize: 103

After: 94
5 minutes later: 88

Activity 5

Plant some seeds in soil. Document how it grows.

If possible, plant 3 in 3 different pots. What happens if two of them don't get either water or sunlight?

Gather the following and put each one in a cup/vessel:

Bicarbonate of Soda

a dirty coin


egg shell

Add a few tablespoons of vinegar to each one, one at a time, writing down what you see.

Wait 10 minutes and revisit the samples- has anything changed? Write down what you see

Do you know anything about vinegar that might be causing these things?
