Frutas (Rockalingua)

This is a great song! Very catchy. As in class, just listen to the middle part and join in only at the beginning and the end of the song.

Vegetables -Listen and repeat

Great for improving your listening and speaking skills. Don't miss it!

¿Te Gusta El Helado De Brócoli? - Do you like broccoli ice cream?

This song is so funny. You'll love it! Just liste and repeat.

Vegetables in Spanish (Verduras en español)

Spring 1


Hello everyone. Here's what we are going to learn this half-term in Spanish:




Don't forget to do the actions when practising at home surprise.


Likes and dislikes


This one is easy:

- If you like a fruit, just say "Me gusta" (I like) and the name of the fruit. For example: "Me gusta la naranja".

- If you don't like a fruit, then say "No me gusta" (I don't like) instead. For example: "No me gusta la naranja".


Simple descriptions


Just follow the colour code and say the words in the order presented from left to right. Let me show you how.

If you want to describe the colour of the apple ("manzana") you must say: "La manzana es rojo".

I'm pretty sure you remember all the colours well but in case you not, then check of the section of Spanish for Reception (EYFS).

Hola Y1s. This half-term will be very exciting. We will start by doing a quick recap on basic classroom instructions. I'm sure you remember them all:



Numbers 1-20


We did great at learning numbers up to 15 in Reception. This year, we will learn numbers up to 20:



Check numbers from 16 to 19. How do we make those numbers in Spanish?


Saying age



We will do this in class many times, so don't you worry if you don't get it quite yet. In the meantime, check on the video below.

How old are you? - ¿Cuántos años tienes? - Calico Spanish Songs for Kids

A lovely song with a challenge.

Summer 1


La Playa


Our new topic is the beach ("la playa"). We will learn new vocabulary and different ways of using it. Why not starting practising the new words now?



"Un Pulpito"


We will sing this lovely song about fishes eating each other. Here are the sea animals:



And here are the lyrics:


Una sardina, una sardina,

nadando en el agua.

Una sardina, una sardina.

¡Glup, glup, glup!

¡O, no! Fue comido por...


Un pulpito, un pulpito,

nadando en el agua.

Un pulpito, un pulpito.

¡Glup, glup, glup!

¡O, no! Fue comido por...


Un atún, un atún,

nadando en el agua.

Un atún, un atún.

¡Glup, glup, glup!

¡O, no! Fue comido por...


Un tiburón, un tiburón,

nadando en el agua.

Un tiburón, un tiburón.

¡Glup, glup, glup!

¡O, no! Fue comido por...


Una ballena, una ballena,

nadando en el agua.

Una ballena, una ballena.

¡Glup, glup, glup!

(burp!) ¡Perdóname!


- "nadando en el agua": swimming in the water.

- "Fue comido por...": it was eaten by...

- "¡Perdóname!": I'm sorry!


Where do you come from? - ¿De dónde eres tú?


Remember: we answer the question with "Soy de" (I'm from) and then we say the country (e.g. "Inglaterra" (England), "España" (Spain), "Polonia" (Poland), "Rumanía" (Romania), etc.).
