Colour match game
First I asked them to name 4 colours each and gave them the card with the corresponding colour.
Then we collected all the cards and played a quick memory game with them – laying them face down on the floor and they had to guess which was which colour.
Singing the rainbow song
Red and Yellow and Pink and Green,
Orange and Purple and Blue
We can sing a rainbow,
Sing a rainbow,
Sing a rainbow too.
Talking about our favourite colours
We talked about our favourite colours and why they were our favourite. Jack chose blue because Thomas the tank engine is blue.
Rachel chose pink because our cats collar is pink so it makes her think of Rocky!!( a phrase I taught her when they studied colours at school last term!)
We also had a chat about different fruits and their different colours – apples, pears, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, oranges and grapes.
Had we had time to go shopping (or at least been more organised in advance) I would have done coloured fruit skewers with them too!
