Sign of the Week

We encourage a total communication environment at Dawn House School, including the use of Makaton signing where appropriate.

Makaton is a global signing system used as an enhancement of spoken English. At Dawn House School, Makaton is used in a targeted way with specific students and groups of pupils to support their understanding of and access to the curriculum.

Sign of the Week

Hannah, from Chimes, has worked on a Makaton sign of the week display board to help improve awareness of Makaton in Chimes. Each week, this links to the Chimes theme of the week. This week, the sign of the week is for the word protect, which comes from our theme of the Earth and our environment. We hope you enjoy seeing the display and learning the sign with us!
