The Jèrriais occasional badge is intended to celebrate La Fête du Jèrriais, which occurs once a year. The badge aims to introduce the Jèrriais language to children, while at the same time helping them to learn more about the history and culture of their island home. Children are required to learn and use key phrases and vocabulary. They also have opportunities to hear and use the language in a range of contexts including poems, stories and songs and are invited to participate in the annual festival.
There are four sets of requirements for this badge aimed at Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers. Each has an accompanying resource pack including supporting visual and audio materials, which can be found below.
We have also put together resource boxes containing objects and materials that might be needed in order to complete the various tasks and challenges. If you would like to borrow these boxes please get in touch via email to arrange collection.
