Jokes and memes

It’s the last week of the term – let’s have some fun. Everyone loves to laugh so let’s share some cool jokes or funny memes.  Here are some of my favourite teacher related memes.

P.S – whatever joke or meme you post, MUST be appropriate. Think carefully – will it make Mrs Campbell laugh?

Top moments from the school year so far.

It’s always great to look back and remember all the wonderful things we have done during the year. This week for blogging I want you to create a top 10 list.


After very careful consideration, in no particular order, here are mine:

  1. Watching the Year 8 netball team beat James Hargest.
  2. Listening to Mrs Meek speak at the assembly to honour the victims of the Christchurch shooting. She was so inspiring.
  3. My birthday – when so many students wished me happy birthday, the block sang Ra Whanau to me, Caitlin made me a beautiful cake, and Room 5 gave me a card they had all signed and a block of chocolate.
  4. When Room 5 got up at assembly and performed the waiata with actions, E Minaka Ana. I was so so proud.
  5. Watching my daughter win the school cross country.
  6. Seeing students persevere with the algebra pattern problems in term 2.
  7. Having so many house captains named from Room 5.
  8. Meeting nearly every single parent at the student led conferences. It was so great to be able to share all the progress everyone had made.
  9. Doing air guitar for the teacher’s item for House Choirs.
  10. Getting emails from parents telling me how happy their children are with their learning.

Room 5 is amazing!

I was so proud of Room 5’s performance at assembly this afternoon. They performed a waiata in preparation for next week being Maori language week and then to acknowledge Tongan language week they did a hiva. It is not easy doing this in front of the whole school – they were very brave.

Science unit – term 2.

This term we have been learning all about the human body and the incredible systems our body has. The lung dissection was a highlight – especially when we got to inflate the sheep lung.

On your blog, I want you to write about the following:

  1. What did you learn during the science unit?
  2. What was your favourite part of the unit?
  3. What would you like to find out more about?

Please write in full sentences -and add pictures or media that help to show the reader what you are talking about. Think about everything you have done that is connected to the human body – not just the dissections, but what we have covered in literacy (reading and writing) as well.
