Sing and Sign

Sing and Sign

One of the more recent groups we have added to our curriculum is ‘Sing n Sign’ which is currently available to our under 3’s.  The session is run by an external organisation who come into the setting once a week to teach the children different signs whilst offering a fun learning experience.  This has proved to be a great success and the children have picked it up well.

The group is very interactive and offers great choice in using puppets, props and other multi-sensory resources whilst singing songs such as ‘The Grand Old Duke of York’ and ‘If you are happy and you know it’.  The Makaton signs which the children learn can be used to aid communication and it helps all children to feel more inclusive.  The session helps children communicate before speech and helps to express themselves through non-verbal communication.

Each class focuses on a few new signs a session and introduces learning tools to follow on and practice and practise at home.  These are available to view on the nursery notice board to reflect and to share the experience with your child.  It is a relaxed and fun session for your child to enjoy.
