Elmer – Colours and Shapes
www.elmer.co.uk/books ( useful ideas for extra activites)
Read the story ‘Elmer’ by David McKee.
Talk about the story and how Elmer feels. Talk about how it can be good to be different, we are all different and all special.
Colour a picture of Elmer- talk about the colours you are using- don’t forget to copy the word ‘Elmer’ and write or name on your picture.
Use the ‘Elmer colour sentence’ PDF to make up sentences. As an extra activity try writing them yourself.
Using the ‘Counting Elmers’ PDF count the number of elephants very carefully and write the number in the box.
Use the ‘Colour by Number’ PDF to colour in Elmer using the correct colours for each number.
RE – Talk about what makes you happy and how we can make others happy.
Together look at ‘The Resurrection’ PDF and talk about why everyone is happy.
Colour in the ‘Christ is Risen’ colouring sheet.
Make a smiling paper plate face. Use any bits you can find at home to stick on for the features or draw them on. You can then cut out the eyes if you like, add some string or elastic if you have any to make a mask which you can tie on. Or add a stick at the bottom to make a mask you can hold up to your face. Can you make one for any of the other members of your family?
Make a milk bottle model of Elmer using a 4 pint plastic milk carton and squares of bright coloured tissue, paper or even felts or paint.
Experiment with mixing primary colours. Which new colours can you make?
Use Red – Yellow – Blue
