Makaton

Here at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School we will be introducing a sign of the week through the use of Makaton.  This can be great for all children as Makaton is a form of communication using all types of expression.  This includes signing, speech, body language and facial expressions.

Children who may experience language or learning difficulties may benefit from the use of key signs to support their understanding and the use of visuals can benefit many children.  Sign of the week promotes inclusion, can facilitate friendships between children and teaches everyone a new skill.
