Elmer is one of my favourite stories.  He is very bright and colourful.  Click on the picture below to listen to the story of Elmer by David McKee.  What colours can you see on Elmer?  Can you draw a very colourful elephant?

In the story of Elmer we saw that he was a very colourful elephant covered in a patchwork pattern.  At the end of the story Elmer's friends decorated themselves in different patterns.  Click on the game above to have a go at making patterns yourselves - look carefully to see what shape and colour will come next.

You could even put some numbers on your towers and see what you can score!  If you need any hoops or pipe cleaners, please email me at Nursery@st-georges-hyde.tameside.sch.uk and I shall get some to you.

At St George's we love to sing.  Click on the link below to learn a new song about Elmer the colourful elephant.  Can you find some things in your house that are red, pink, blue and green?

Our question this half term is What makes the world bright and colourful?

I wonder if you can find lots of colourful things in your house and sort them into all the red things, all the blue things, all the orange things and all the green things?  You could use your socks, or your toys, or the tins in the kitchen cupboards.  Which is your favourite colour?

Monday 22nd June

Today is a beautiful, sunny day.  Why don't you find your favourite blankets and cushions and make a nice, cosy space outside where you can look at your favourite books.  You could read Simon Sock - that is full of different colours and patterns just like Elmer!

Draw a picture of your favourite story, or your favourite character and send it into school so that we can put it on the walls to brighten them up.

Home Learning

Welcome to our new Summer Term Home Learning Page.  We are sharing our Big Question with the rest of school this term and it is What makes the world bright and colourful?  We will be giving you lots of ideas of stories to read, games to play, things to make and songs to sing all about our world and what makes it such a bright, colourful and special place to be.

You can choose to do as many things as you like from the choice board and remember to send in what you have done so that we can display it at school.  We miss you all so much and would love some of your learning to brighten up the walls at school.
