Skills for work, skills for life

We have had a fantastic afternoon today. Thomas’s dad Lindsay Angus came into school with Peter Robertson to teach us how to tie different types of knots in string, twine and rope. Most of the bairns at North Roe school help with animals on the croft and they go off fishing so this was very relevant skills to learn that will be really useful. We learned about friction and how it keeps the knot intact. Lindsay and Peter demonstrated tying different types of knots and then we all had a go. We learned the:

  1. Square knot
  2. Bowline
  3. Sheet Bend
  4. Clove hitch
  5. Fisherman’s knot

Thank-you to Lindsay and Peter for coming in to teach the bairns. Everyone had a great time! 🙂
