Makaton is a language programme that uses signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.
In Nursery, we use Makaton signs to support our learning in all areas of the curriculum. Signs help us to learn new vocabulary and to remember daily routines. From Autumn 2, we will share a new sign here every week so that you can join in at home.
After the weather we've had the last few days, this seems like the perfect place to start with our new collection of signs!
