Using Makaton

What is Makaton

Welcome to our “Using Makaton” page. James has created a series of videos introducing this form of sign language aimed at helping young children to express themselves and to focus on using and understanding language and speech.

Sally & James – Series two

James and Sally have been very busy at Ann Bernadt Nursery today making more videos for the Makaton series. In this collection, James accompanied by Sally and Peter continue with the Makaton theme with another storytime entry plus three new videos covering everyday topics.
