Over the last couple of months some of our staff members have been learning Makaton. Makaton is a form of sign language which helps strengthen language development. Makaton involves using signs as well as the spoken word. All rooms have been using it in their daily activities with the children and they have enjoyed learning this new skill! They have also been using it in songs, a firm favourite was 'Old MacDonald' with staff signing all the animals. A few animals and insects are on our Makaton board next to the office; come and have a look at the work they have been doing!
