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. 

Circle Of Life - Makaton Sign Language

Another great song from Melodysigns on YouTube.

Don't Stop Me Now - World Down Syndrome Day

We have started to practise signing "Don't stop me now" ready for World Down Syndrome Day next week. Can you sign along with the chorus?
