Mission One- Games

< Back to Missions

Introduction

In order to show you have learned from the training, you must also complete all 4 missions. These may sound like massive tasks but if you are taking an active role in your section then you might have completed them already!

Below it explains what you have to do to complete this mission as well as how to get it signed off.

What you have to do

Plan and run a minimum of three games with the section you are volunteering with. At least one game should take place indoors and one outdoors.

The games should be varied, incorporating:

  • at least two different types of leadership style (Module B and Module C)
  • three different types of games; for example some games may be more energetic and active, while others may be more creative or reflective (Module E)

To complete this mission, you could:

  • run a game at the beginning or end of a section night
  • run a wide game on a camp
  • run a game that ties into a badge the section is working towards
  • run a game that reinforces something the section has learned
  • any other ideas, subject to agreement with ESLYL and SL

 

This could be done in a virtual section meeting too!

Evidence

To show you have completed these tasks we ask you to write a little bit about your experience and upload it to youngleaders@sthelensscouts.org.uk

Fill in the Mission 1 page of your logbook.

If you don’t have a logbook then for each of the three games you ran, please make notes on:

  • date
  • location
  • leadership styles used
  • game type
  • instructions of the game
  • equipment needed
  • badges/awards worked towards
  • self evaluation of how it went

 

Ensure you label it clearly with your Name and the Mission.  We will review and confirm receipt, updating your records and progress within the scheme.

You need to complete this to be signed off.

Thank you for taking the time to do training at home, stay safe
