Colours Vocabulary



This resource is aimed at infant/junior pupils or SEN pupils. It is based on learning the name words of colours. The resource asks pupils to match the name of the colour on the right of each card with the image of the splash of paint on the left of each card.

The cards are printed four per A4 page. Cut up the sheets into eleven separate cards and laminate each of the cards individually. Pupils should look at the splash of paint on the left of each card. The pupil should then attach a clothes peg to the matching colour word on the right of each card from the three possible options given.

This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but know the names of colours. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.

This activity could be used during Station Teaching with a station for Visual Discrimination, where a pack is made up for each pupil.

We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what language topic we were currently working on.

Activities such as these could also used as Independent work completed by SEN pupils in their work station.
