Sign/BSL with Fiona – Family

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well. I have been lucky enough to spot some of you out and about enjoying some time with your family, which has been lovely to see. So this week I have decided to show you how to” sign” some of your family members.

Signing doesn’t have to be limited to children with a hearing loss, it is also a great way for babies to start communicating and help reduce frustrations. Your child will understand the signs you are making quite quickly but it will normally take much longer for them to perform them. Their signs might differ from yours until they are able to perfect the hand gesture but this is perfectly okay as it should still be obvious what they wish to communicate to you.

Next week I intend on doing some animal signs but if anyone has any other signs they would like to learn, please just let me know in the comments 🙂

Greenbank Gardens

Hi everyone, Eilidh here 😀

I am very fortunate to live across from Greenbank Gardens and, although the gardens themselves are closed, we have been taking many of our daily walks in the forest area around them. There are benches, chairs and stepping stones made from trees that have had to be cut down for safety reasons and also little teepee style dens made from sticks. The boys absolutely love going exploring and we use it as a learning opportunity to discuss what we can see and hear.

Crawling in to the den
Chasing squirrels up trees
Playing hide and seek with Dad
The boys love finding sticks to take home
Having a rest on the bench
Too tired to walk home after all their running around! So glad we held onto their slings!!

Hope you are all having as much fun exploring your local area!

Take care, stay home and stay safe x
