Knot work

Today, Alex and John came to the Senior Room to teach us how to make a small rope mat. It was quite confusing at first but with PATIENCE and PERSEVERANCE we managed to make them. Larger ones of these were used on ships to stop the noise and protect the wood.

Changing a Unicylcle Tyre

Unicycles are great and it's been a lot of fun falling off them, but then we get up and try again. We've used them so much that the old tyres were so worn out they popped. On Friday, we were learning about how to change a unicycle tyre with Mr Neal. Kids took turns at helping change the tyre. Next time we are going to learn how to fix a puncture.
