There has been a new arrival to brighten up each classroom over the past week as our new ELLI Posters have been put on display.
As part of the Year 8 Core Skills curriculum, students were asked to enter a competition to design a poster to help students remember each of their ELLI Dimensions. The ELLI Dimensions are the lifelong skills we all need to develop to become better learners. The winning entry was then edited professionally by a Creative Designer.
The winners of the competition were Kuba and Roch from 8D. They stated “Our first Idea was to have the animals out of their habitat, for example a chameleon (for Changing & Learning) in the arctic, to show that you have to get out of your comfort zone to improve, however we didn’t think the animals would be very happy about that! We then thought about putting the animals into their natural habitats, later deciding to put them all together on a tree. When designing, we wanted it to look as realistic as possible, so we spent some time trying to find a tree that would fit, one with just branches at the top and some down below but none we could find fitted the description, so the next best thing had to be chosen, it’s what you see now, that large oak. We had a lot of fun designing this poster and it’s nice to see the work has paid off. We were delighted when we won and the way the graphic designer had altered it was cool. The poster looks better than we expected!”
