Designed to encourage Makaton users' interest in sport and to build their confidence in talking about the sports they like and enjoy watching on TV.
Watching Your Favourite Sports has three activities:
- identify and talk about a range of sports watched on television
- identify how you feel when watching sports and which sports you like
- create a timetable so you know when your favourite sports are on television
Each activity is accompanied by the relevant symbols and signs, and includes helpful suggestions and additional ways for Makaton users to be able to understand and communicate about their favourite sports.
The following sports are covered: athletics, bowls, boxing, cricket, cycling, dancing, darts, football, Formula 1, golf, gymnastics, horse racing, ice skating, Moto GP, rally car racing, rugby, snooker, tennis, and wrestling.
