Makaton Sign

In nursery, we use Makaton sign language for core words, to help with the development of communication and language skills. Each week, the children learn a new Makaton sign.  We will post it on Facebook so you can practise it with your child at home.  The Makaton sign is on our weekly newsletter.

Here are some examples of the words we have learnt.


Makaton sign for please.

Makaton sign for sit.

Makaton sign for toilet,

Makaton sign for thank you.

Makaton sign for goodbye.

Makaton sign for hello.
