To help develop learning behaviours in the classroom we have developed our Learning Monsters. There are a set of Learning Monsters for Foundation/Key Stage 1 and a set for Key Stage 2. All the monsters cover the same learning characteristics but the expectations of each are slightly different to ensure that they are age appropriate.
You can meet our Learning Monsters below.
