A Knotty Situation
A Knotty Situation

A knotty situation? All Tied Up? (K)Not PYP6 who have been learning to tie different knots in preparation for their Outdoor Education Residential visit. As well as knots, they constructed harnesses using ropes and a carabine all of which will come in handy when they are rock climbing! #thisisBISS #BissGausel


Engineering Skills

MYP2 tested their engineering skills and creativity when participating in a boat building competition. They designed and built their boats from scratch and then competed in three categories. 1. The best Shakespeare themed boat. 2. The boat that can go the furthest with only one push (homemade propellers allowed). 3. The boat that can take the heaviest weight before sinking or tipping over. There were lots of interesting discussions about weight distribution, aquadynamic shapes, and Shakespearean characters happening. Despite rainy and grey weather, everyone kept their spirits up and cheered each other on!
