Makaton with Singing
Please note this course has been cancelled for this academic year
No previous knowledge required or you may have already attended Makaton Beginners Workshop. You will definitely need an interest in Makaton and Singing with Early Years aged children.
Tutor: Tracy King
Using Makaton with Singing is a fun and easy way to learn to use signs with singing for young children. Signing and singing have been shown to encourage the development of communication and language skills and are beneficial for vocalisation, confidence, social skills, emotional development, well-being and self-esteem.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- Demonstrate the use of Makaton symbols taught during the workshop
- Demonstrate the use of props alongside Makaton to support understanding
- Demonstrate Makaton signs from songs, at different levels of use.
- Formulate an outline of a singing session to take back to your setting/family.
