Junior Section

The Junior Section is the second stage for youngster in the BB and is for children aged between 8 and 11.

Juniors is about having fun, making friends, trying new things and enjoying lots of activities. if that sounds familiar its because those are the same aims as the Anchor section.  In fact Anchors and Juniors are so similar that we are able to run both sections together.

The Juniors meet every Thursday during normal school term time at 17:45 untill 19:00.

The Juniors activity programme is virtually identical to the Anchor section which is why we are able to run activities for both age groups together. The main difference is that in order for a Junior to earn an award they must complete at least one activity from each of the five zones. This keeps the activities balanced and allows us to focus on each of these important aspects.

The Junior Section has lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, crafts, games, sports, stories, going on visits, making friends, and working towards their badges the 5 sections that the activities follow are:

  • Body - fit for fun
  • Mind - think and do
  • Spirit - God and me
  • Community - me and my world
  • Creativity - make and do

See below for more information on the badge system.
