This week we have started to follow the adventures of Elmer the Elephant, who is a colourful character from the popular stories by David McKee. We have been using these stories to learn about colour. We have particularly enjoyed the colour treasure hunts in the garden and filling large elephants with paint in the playground. In nursery we have been making a large collage of Elmer for the wall, as well as little elephants of our own. We have played games to help us learn our colours and have sung colour related songs. We are looking forward to finding out more about Elmer next week, and investigating pattern next.
