Melton Mowbray Library: Diddy Signers Melton Mowbray (Makaton Signing session with a Pirate Theme) 10.30am
Diddy Signers Melton Mowbray session
Friday 18th October
Melton Mowbray Library
Learning Makaton signing through songs, stories and games/activities to aid communication with babies and children.
Family session aimed at under 7s and their adult/s. Older siblings welcome.
£1 per child – no need to book, just turn up and pay on the day.
Makaton Friendly – all signs used will be compatible with the Makaton system.
The classes are a fun way to promote the language and learning development of your little one. They will follow a familiar structure whilst introducing key words, new songs and activities each time.
Beginning with a ‘hello’ song so that the children and adults learn each other’s names, which in turn helps to build friendships within the class. After this, a set of key words will be introduced, following the theme of the week.
The rest of the class will involve fun activities as a way of embedding new signs and practising ones already learnt, listening to stories that the children can sign along with and lots and lots of songs.
All the classes will include sensory props as part of the songs and activities, as all children learn in different ways and need to experience different visuals, sounds, textures and environments to understand new concepts.
At the end of the class you will be given handouts with the signs for the key words on so that you can continue the learning at home by using them as part of everyday conversation.
