Learning Characteristics- Our Learning Animals

At Newlands, we have designed a set of 'Learning Animals' which help us to understand how we learn and to share how to be successful learners.


Our Learning Animals are:


Caring Koala

Concentrating Crocodile

Persevering Parrot

Go for it Gorilla

Diving Deeper Dolphin

Creative Chameleon

I Know Rhino

Slinky Linky Snake

Teamwork Turtle

Exploring Elephant

Responsible Raccoon  


When our teachers see that we have demonstrated a learning behaviour, we achieve dojo points which are linked to the learning animals.
