Reception Pattern Day

We have had an amazing time making our own Elmer, retelling the story and thinking about what makes us unique and then writing about it.

Our fabulous finish to the week was our very own Bourne Elsea Park Elmer’s Day Parade.  The children came dressed in bright colours and bold patterns and created their own ‘herd’ of patterned elephants, each one different and unique. 

The children made elephant trunks which were brightly coloured and they created their own repeating patterns. They designed their own beautifully bright elephants and made perfectly patterned parading elephants too. We did see a grey elephant in the reading corner.  It wasn’t patterned at all…could it have been Elmer?

What a super day Reception had.  All their colours, patterns and learning certainly brightened up the day.
