Using our manners!

This week we have been practising using our manners, we have been making sure we are always saying please and thank you. Manners are very important!

Everyday at snack time, Burrow and Cobweb classes sing their please and thank you song and then we go around the circle asking who would like fruit and we use the Makaton signs for ‘yes please’ and ‘no thank you’ to respond.

It isn’t important that as you speak and sign at the same time when using Makaton.

I challenge you to use your manners at home using the Makaton signs!

Welcome to FDPA News!

This week we have been learning some Makaton signs and symbols and we are beginning with some of the basics such as good morning and good afternoon. Makaton is a fantastic way to communicate using signs and symbols and is accessible to all. It is important to sign at the same time that you say the word.

We will be learning new signs and symbols each week to help us communicate.

Keep posted for more FDPA updates!
