At our Pack meeting on 8 May we were working towards our local knowledge badge. As a part of this the Cubs need to draw a map of their area and mark places of interest on it but we decided to do it slightly differently. We decided used a real map of Kidlington inflated to a giant size as the starting point: we had 100 pieces of A3 paper and the Senior Sixers worked as a team with the Young Leaders to assemble them like a jigsaw into a great big map measuring 3m x 4.2m! All of the other Cubs choose a Kidlington landmark and got to work with construction – schools, churches, shops, pubs a fire station, a police station, a library, the sports centre and parks. Once their buildings were created, they painted them and then transferred them to correct location on the giant map. This was a fun evening  which helped the Cubs to learn a lot more about their local area.
