During Autumn 1 we have been looking at the story ‘Elmer’ by David McKee. We explored some of the themes of the book such as being unique and special as well as producing our own stories based on the original. We all enjoyed finding out more about the character of Elmer when reading his other stories.
We also linked Elmer to materials in our science lessons. The children created collage Elmer’s using different materials and discussed the uses and properties of each material. These are displayed in our cloakroom area.
The children enjoyed bringing in everyday materials from home to add to our science working wall. We used these materials for discussions and investigations.
