Makaton Sign

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

Here are some examples of the words we have learnt.


19/10/2020 - This week our Makaton sign is please.

12/10/2020 - This week our Makaton sign is sit.

5/10/2020 - The week our Makaton sign is toilet,

28/10/2020 - This week our Makaton sign is thank you.

21/9/2020 - This week our Makaton sign is goodbye.

14/9/2020 - This week our Makaton sign is hello.
