Our Learning Animals

Developing a Growth Mindset at MPL is underpinned by the characteristics of our learning animals.  These reflect a range of key learning behaviours and are celebrated each week on our Growing Tree.


  • Terry the Tortoise - determination and persistence
  • Honey the Bee - teamwork
  • Striker the Eagle - independence
  • Snowy the Owl - planning learning
  • Rango the Chameleon - adapting and making changes
  • Scatter the Spider - making connections


We also celebrate four additional learning behaviours:


  • Bubbles the Dolphin - enthusiasm
  • Cosmo the Cat - curiosity
  • Sparkle the Unicorn - imagination
  • Polo the Peacock - presentation
