Language of Learning – Activity from The School Council.

As we discussed in class we want to create characters/symbols that represent our learning.

The words we think best represent our learning at Lings are:

  • Courage
  • Respect
  • Confidence
  • Ambition
  • Resilience
  • Kindness
  • Enthusiasm

These characters can look or be anything you want but they need to have a name for example Captain Courage or Professor Kindness.

Draw them on a paper and email me your designs. You can use colour and they can be anything you imagine.

They will be sent to the school council meeting where the winners will be picked.


Story Time

Listen and join in with this relaxing story

Remember to leave us a comment on the blog to share your learning or you can email it to me at

We look forward to seeing your work!
