‘Makaton Mondays’ at our nursery!


This week, we are starting to try ‘Makaton Mondays’!

We aim to introduce a few signs to the boys and girls each week to help communication, language and understanding for all.


What is Makaton?

Makaton is designed to support spoken language – signs are used with speech, in spoken word order to help children and adults to communicate. Using signs can help children who have no speech (either because they have communication difficulties or are very young) or whose speech is unclear.
