As part of our 'Amazing Africa' theme we read 'Elmer'! The children have been exploring colour and pattern because Elmer is a patchwork elephant. We also had lots of discussions on difference and diversity. The children talked about the story, and we even read some other Elmer books and compared the characters, setting and main events. We have been exploring size language and ordered elephants by size as well as measuring using our hands and feet!
