Discovery Room

  Welcome to 2021. My name is Linda Jensen-Gaiger and I am excited to be the teacher in Discovery and be a part of your child’s learning journey this year. We are a delightful bunch of 22 hard working and motivated Year 5 and 6 students. In our class we work as a team, living our school values and becoming responsible, self managing learners. 

We decided our class walls needed brightening up so one of our first challenges for the term was to create a pixel self portrait work of art.  This required great concentration and focus but we got there in the end and our art looks amazing.

 

We use Discovery Dollars in our class through the online Banqer programme.  This teaches us about savings, expenses and earning interest.  We also have to budget our expenses for the week, and set up automatic payments to make sure our bills are paid.

Our theme for this year is ‘Change’ and we have been exploring the changes needed within ourselves to become great leaders and achieve our goals.  We also stumbled upon a problem that we needed to solve. After reading an article about the worldwide problem of food waste, we discovered we have our own waste issues at school.  The keen Discovery learners are currently coming up with ways to solve this problem—stay tuned next term to see what ‘changes’ we have made!
