Tiny Talk at the hall from 19th April

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting Tiny Talk classes at the hall from 19th April.

There will be two classes on a Thursday morning each week.

The classes are for babies and mums (dads as well of course) and all you need to know is posted below:

Helen Reeves-Howard the organiser explains what’s what :

💜Classes begin on 19th April.

💛10 – 11am Baby signing
💙11.15 – 12.15pm Toddler talking.

So what actually happens at TinyTalk classes?

TinyTalk Baby Signing classes are 1 hour long, with the same structure every week to help your little TinyTalker feel secure. With your baby, you’ll get to;

⭐️ Sing favourite nursery rhymes.
⭐️ March and dance to our walkabout songs (Hokey Cokey is a definite favourite that makes the babies giggle!).
⭐️ Take part in sensory activities, including bubbles, sensory shapes, flashing balls and reading books.
⭐️ Learn around 5 core signs every week.

In the second half of the session, the babies have a chance to play with a wide range of toys, and the grown ups can get a hot drink – this is often a rare opportunity to drink a whole cup of tea or coffee with a small baby! Many parents say that this is their favourite part of the week – and there are chocolate biscuits too. You’ll be able to take home a small handout to remind you of the core signs, as we all know what a lack of sleep does to the memory.

Our Toddler Talking classes follow the same basic structure that your little ones are used to, as familiarity is so comforting! Though it’s not essential to have attended the baby classes.

During class time we;
⭐️ Encourage toddlers’ speech and language development.
⭐️ Bring songs, stories, and games alive with signs, props, and more!
⭐️ Promote skills such as turn taking, sharing, following instructions and teamwork.
⭐️ Cover different themes such as zoo animals, colours, opposites and lots more, to give them the vocabulary to tell you about their world.

Of course our toddlers know none of this, they’re too busy having fun!
