Colores
Early Level Significant Aspects of Learning
• Use language in a range of contexts and across learning
• Develop confidence and enthusiasm to communicate using the
language being learnt
• Begin to develop an awareness of other countries, cultures and
languages
• Listen and join in with simple songs, stories and rhymes
• Explore and recognise patterns and sounds of language through
listening, watching and playing
• Understand, respond to and say simple greetings and personal
information (e.g. name)
• Repeat and understand simple familiar language from a familiar
source
• Actively take part in simple daily routine language
• Participate in familiar games including outdoor learning
• Begin to explore resources to support my learning e.g. picture
dictionaries

Embedding the language
Whenever colours feature as part of an
activity or story ask the question, “¿Qué
color es?” to prompt pupils to tell you
what colour something is in Spanish.
For example in art activities, colour
mixing, stories, looking a pictures etc.
Sample activities
You will find a bank of sample activities which you can use to
practise the vocabulary in the classroom.
This is not a prescriptive list of activities and you can use or
adapt them to suit the needs of your class.
You will find a set of more supported activities in Early Feelings
and more challenging activities in Level 2 Feelings.
¡Busca!
1. Busca el means “Find the”
2. Pupils have a selection of objects which are different
colours in front of them.
3. Teacher calls out “Busca el” and adds a colour onto the end
e.g. Busca el rojo!
4. The pupils must then hold up whichever object is that
colour.
5. You can ask pupils to then say what colour it is e.g. Es rojo
6. Pupils can also then take a turn of asking others to “Busca
el…”
Circulo de colores game
1. Pupils sit in a circle, close their eyes and count to ten in
Spanish
2. Whilst they are counting the teacher puts an object in the
centre of the circle.
3. Once they reach ten they open their eyes (¡abrir los ojos!)
4. They then have to say what colour the object is.
5. This can be extended by passing the object around the
circle and counting and whoever it lands on at the count of
ten, has to say what colour it is e.g. “Es azul” or just “azul”
Modelling dough
1. Modelling dough is a good kinesthetic way to reinforce the
colours and can be used to create objects with the teacher
asking for particular colours in Spanish.
2. For example can ask pupils to “¡Crear algo azul!” (create
something…blue!) and then they pick the correct colour
and make an object.
3. Another approach would be to combine numbers and
colours e.g. ¡Cinco rojo! And pupils would have to form
whatever number of coloured balls using the modelling
dough.
Songs and videos!
You will find a bank of sample songs and videos which you can use
to practise the vocabulary in the classroom.
This is not a prescriptive list of songs and you can use or adapt
them to suit the needs of your class.

and more challenging activities in Level 2 Feelings.
