Little Puffin Signing classes are run in blocks of six, building on the skills of signing as the sessions progress. The aim is to equip you with signs you can use in daily routines. We focus on a different topic each session using books, songs and sensory activities to demonstrate and practise the signs. The sessions will be relaxed and informal; everyone learns better when they’re having fun!
This is the first set of sessions covering the basics of using Signalong and earlier developing words. You will learn to help your child to communicate their needs e.g. their favourite giraffe toy or getting an ice-cream at the beach! Classes cover the following topics: farm animals, the park, jungle animals, the beach, food, and daily routines. There is free time during sessions to allow you to request any signs that are important to you and your child.
This is the second set of sessions, covering later developing words and more abstract language. This set of sessions will help you to learn signs for expanding your child’s vocabulary. Classes cover the following topics: transport, the weather, emotions, colours, my toys and going to preschool.
