Rata Assembly

At assembly on Thursday we told everyone about what we've been learning about bee communities. We had a queen bee (Verity), her husband the drone (Ryan), quite a a few princesses and lots and lots of worker bees. We told the audience about all the different jobs that bees do in their community.


 Mrs Powell was a busy bee walking around the beehive with a microphone!


  By surprise, we got Mrs Church up on the stage too. She got to wear a crown and sit on the throne because she is our 'queen bee' of Rata.

We were lucky enough to have Rhythm Interactive at school.
All of Rata and Rimu blocks went to the hall together and we all had our own drums to play.
We had so much fun making our own music with different beats.
We learnt how to make different sounds by tapping the drum in different places.
Even Miss Koorey had a turn on the drums as well!
