Here’s a fabulous new resource for you to enjoy together with young children.
We are delighted to have been working with Julia Donaldson, author of such best-selling books as the Gruffalo, Room on a Broom and Monkey Puzzle. Julia has been learning Makaton and has recorded a video of the Monkey Puzzle Song with Makaton.
There are two videos, below, one of the song and the other demonstrates key signs in the song. There is also a printable resource, Using Makaton with Monkey Puzzle, with the signs you need for the story and the song, together with a few symbols to help children to talk about the story.
