Brief Overview

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.

Designed for those have no prior knowledge of Makaton, Using Makaton with Singing will suit Early Years practitioners, parents, teachers, and classroom assistants working with young children.  You will learn up to 100 signs and have fun practising them in songs adapted for different levels of ability.

The course consists of four lively practical sessions covering:

  • What is Makaton?
  • Tips for Signing.
  • Developing skills through signing and singing.
  • Using Makaton in my setting.

Each participant will receive a manual which includes all the signs and symbols learnt on the training, plus a Makaton certificate.

Please note: there is an additional charge of £6.50 per person for the manual for this course. The manual contains all the signs, symbols and songs included in the course plus other useful information.

Delegates that pay by credit card will be contacted by our Finance team, so they can pay for their manual over the phone.
