Elmer the Elephant is 30 years old this year. Many of us will be familiar with the wonderful stories about the adventures of this humorous, patchwork elephant through reading them to our children. The first book ‘Elmer’ was published in 1989 and it was a particular favourite of all the children in my first Reception class, when I started teaching in 1990. We shall be celebrating Elmer’s birthday next week with a multi-coloured mufti at Greenfield on Friday 24 May. Come to school in as many colours as you can and enjoy a day of exploring our diversity and celebrating our differences.
