How about trying some drama activities?
Jo from Play the Crowd has sent a few activities that you can try at home.
Jo also thought this would be a great time to learn how to communicate using Makaton.
Makaton is a language programme that uses signs and symbols to help people communicate. It’s used by people with a range of learning difficulties and communication problems, such as Down’s Syndrome and autistic spectrum disorders.
Makaton is designed to support spoken language. The signs are used alongside speech, in the same order as the spoken words.
Makaton can help people who have limited speech, or whose speech is unclear. Many children who learn Makaton drop the signs as their speech improves, but some continue to use it throughout their lives.
In the Cbeebies video below, actor Rob Delaney reads and signs a Cbeebies bedtime story with Makaton.
