We all had a go at answering the question...

Do we need bees at Trentham School?

This is what Aria wrote.

Do we need bees at Trentham School ?
Yes, I think we do need bees at Trentham School because bees help flowers live by giving them pollen which they take and turn into honey.  That means we can have honey at breakfast club on toast.

Bees are harmless. People think bees are mean and sting for the sake of it but they do not sting for the sake of it .They only hurt you if they think you’re going to hurt them. It’s like having a pet cat. Cats only scratch or bite you if you hurt them or if they misread your body language.

So if you think bees hurt you and that they are useless, well think again. People only touch on what bees do wrong and only some people see all the good things bees do for the world.

So give the bees second chance. We get given second chances so why can't the bees have a second chance too? That’s why I think bees should be at Trentham School.

So if this does not change your mind then just try to remember all the good bees do for you and if you like honey, well thank the bees for making it! Try to see the world without bees.You would not even last four years- it’s a fact !

Today we made a tally chart of all the different ethnic groups in Room 6 and then we used the chrome books to make graphs. As you can see we have a very diverse class with lots of very interesting languages and cultures. That's what makes Trentham such a cool school to belong to.

We started tennis training today. We have 4 sessions. Trevor and Jordan were the pros today!


Today we learnt a whakatauki which is a Maori proverb.

Manaaki whenua
Manaaki tangata
Haere whakamua

Care for the land
Care for people
Go forward

Waitangi Day

Why do we have Waitangi Day?

Value of the Term


Willingness to help, empathise with, or show mercy to those who suffer.

This means helping those in trouble!

Well done Room 6 for a great start to the year and helping each other to settle in to new routines and working with new people.
