Elmer

October 2017

This week we have been looking at the book ‘Elmer’ by David McKee. We started the lesson by putting ourselves into a group using coloured beads and no talking. We found this quite easy as we were able to use hand gestures to communicate. We then played a memory game-linking to an elephant’s ability to remember. After this we discussed key themes from the story and created our own questions.

We then voted to see which question we wanted to explore. Here are the questions and the votes:

What makes people different?

24

What is happiness?

16

Do families always show love?

15

What is love?

5

What is friendship?

13

Why do we celebrate?

15

From our discussion we decided that there are a lot of things which make us seem different but there is always something we can find in common with each other.
