9TH ROTHERHAM SCOUT GROUP: Beavers completed their International Award by singing the french song Frere Jacques and counting to ten in french. They also repeated the french Beaver Promise. They discussed five national flags and coloured some printouts of flags which included France, Italy, Japan, USA and Germany. This was followed by a tasting session of garlic bread.
