Learning Muscles

Learning Muscles 1

Learning Muscles


The children are introduced to eight Learning Muscles during their time at Faringdon Infant School. These are the learning attitudes required to be successful learners with a 'can do' mind-set. The characters and the learning muscles they represent are introduced through assemblies, stories and in class. Children are celebrated in various ways when they demonstrate the learning attitudes at school.


There are different characters attached to each Learning Muscle in Nursery the children are introduced to:


Cooperation - Andy Ant

Curiosity - Maggie Meerkat

Have a go - Mo the Cheetah


In Foundation the children continue to develop the Learning Muscles they have met before and a further two Learning Muscles are introduced:


Raj the Robot- Don't give up

Enjoy Learning - Monty the Monkey


In Key Stage 1 the children are introduced to the final Learning Muscles to complete our 'can do' mind set.


Concentration - Olga Owl

Imagination - Daisy Dinosaur

Keep growing - George the Giant


The children enjoy making links between the characters and their learning. In Key Stage 1 the children are celebrated on a Monday for showing they have a 'can do' mindset.
