Sign of the Week

Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate - either as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech. 

Here at Oaklands we use Makaton in the classrooms to support learning.  Each week we choose a “Sign of the Week” and this is shown to all the students during their weekly class assemblies. Students are then able to practice the sign during the week.

This weeks sign of the week is "Ready, respectful, safe" - why not have a go at practising at home?
