St George’s “Learnimals” Learning Powers
 

At St George’s School we believe that learning should be a life-long enterprise. We aim to develop our pupils “Learning Power”, not just so they can complete school learning more easily and effectively, but so they will leave school with the “disposition” (a set of habits and attitudes) which will serve them well as they boldly go through the journey of life. Starting this week we are introducing a new revised set of Learning Powers which we are naming our “Learnimals”.
 

What are “Learnimals”?
 
 
Our “Learnimal” characters all represent a different learning power. These help the children to become better learners. Each Learnimal is like a different “learning muscle” that need to be exercised so that they grow strong helping everyone become a better learner. They are all things which can be learnt, practised and improved.

Our “Learnimal” characteristics are there to help everyone create habits and attitudes which will enable learners to face difficulty and uncertainty calmly, confidently and creatively. It is about practical strategies that can be used in real situations. It is not about subject in itself, rather it is a “framework” that sits within all lessons.
 
Our “Learnimal” Characters:
 
Concentrating Camel 
 
Questioning Queen Bee
 
Persevering Penguin
 
Imagining Iguana

Each week, we present our “Learnimal” certificates in Achievement Assembly.
