Makaton Mania

We are learning some songs using Makaton.

Makaton  can help people who have limited speech or whose speech is unclear and can help all children communicate.

It is used to support spoken language. The signs are used alongside speech in the same order as the spoken word.

We are singing and signing “Five little ducks “.

We are also learning to sign our names during “Hello everyone”.



“I can sign my name”    “it’s fun to sign”

We are having fun learning to sign!

Learning sign language

As we have been learning some basic signs in the toddler room we use daily to help us communicate, the children have been enjoying practicing them! Today we learned some new signs like “sleep”, “snack” “thank you” etc. Here are some of our clever children trying them out.

“Thank you”

this is a tricky one to illustrate, so the girls done a motion each 🙂

“Snack”

“sleep”

“Well done”

We will practice different signs this week, so stay tuned 🙂 thank you to all our clever helpers!
