Over the last several years a number of schools across Bristol have adopted a teaching and learning model developed by educational researchers from Bristol University. This model - ELLI , consists of seven learning dimensions which we believe hold the key to the development of our children as effective or powerful lifelong learners.
Powerful learners know what to do next by having their own strategies which they are able to choose between.
Powerful learners understand that they can become better learners over time
Powerful learners are great at being able to connect what they have learnt from one lesson to another and to their lives outside of school
Powerful learners love asking their own questions to find out what’s really going on.
Powerful learners don’t give up easily when things start to get difficult.
Powerful learners love playing with possibilities and using their imagination to solve problems in different ways.
Powerful learners love sharing their thoughts and ideas with others and working well together to solve problems.
