Makaton

Hi everyone and welcome to Copnor’s Makaton Challenge!

Makaton is a language system that combines hand signs with speech. This is a bit like Sign Language, but you must say the words as well, to add an extra layer of communication. Thousands of people all around the world use Makaton to communicate with each other. It is used for lots of different reasons, such as by people with learning difficulties, hearing problems and even to communicate with animals (some of the hand signs have been taught in zoos to chimpanzees and gorillas!)
Each week, we’ll add 10 new signs to the website for you to practice and learn. If you can remember them all, you’ll be well on your way to learning Makaton, and being able to impress your friends and family with a brand new language!
Good Luck!
Mr. Ball & Miss Whittingham
