Another favourite storybook character of the students in Junior Infants is Elmer the Elephant. We used Elmer as part of a combined science and art class. We learned about primary colours, and then we mixed primary colours to make new colours. After all of our experimenting, we used the colours we made to paint our own patchwork sheets. Then we taped all of our patchwork sheets together and cut out our very own giant Elmer Elephant who now stands in pride of place in the school corridor.
