Ellie and Toucan on their adventure.

We love learning at Ashley Down and use our friends, Elli the elephant and Toucan, to develop all the important skills we need to be the best learners we can be.

It all began when Elli and Toucan went on a journey together.

They met lots of animals and discovered many new learning skills.

The Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes use the animals, such as
the stickability tortoise’ and
the ‘curious cat’, to develop
these skills too.

I can, toucan, we all can!

Further up the school they focus on Core Learning Skills. Toucan helps with skills such as 'learning with others' and 'independence and responsibility'.
