Makaton

Using Makaton signing can boost a child’s confidence and communication skills - and encourage them to express themselves creatively.

 

At Sunflowers we use informal actions and signs to go with known songs and rhymes that can help children meet some of the developmental goals set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage profile (EYFS)  

 

Makaton helps the children by allowng them to listens with enjoyment to stories, songs, rhymes and poems.  It leads on  them to beng able to sustain attentive listening and responds with relevant comments, questions or actions'.
