noMakaton in Nurseryno


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. We will share a new sign here every week so that you can join in at home. 

Sign of the week: HAPPY NEW YEAR

Sign of the week: SNOWMAN

We have been singing about five little snowmen standing in a row!

Sign of the Week - Pizza

We are learning to sign some of the foods we eat at lunchtime. Pizza is a firm favourite with Nursery!

Signs of the week: HOT and COLD

We have been talking about changes happening around us - and we are all noticing how cold it is getting! We also talked about how hot porridge is when it is cooked and how we must wait for it to cool before we taste it.

Bedtime story!
