Little Gonerby's Skills for Learning and Life


We have been working hard at Little Gonerby to bring six life skills to all the children in our school. The skills are represented as different forest animals.  


Sammy the Communicator Squirrel

Ollie the Creative Owl

Holly the Collaborative Hedgehog

Rosie the Reflective Rabbit

Wanda the Resilient Worm

Sally Independent Snail


The children have their own book with the characters in which has a small paragraph about each character which the children wrote and the date of their birthday. These stories help us to understand the importance of each of these skills.


At the end of each week the children in the class vote for the children who have shown the skills throughout the week and they are awarded a certificate.
