Please contact groups prior to visiting to ensure they are running on this day.

THURSDAY MORNING

Sing and Sign: Horfield Methodist Church
Sing and Sing are music classes but with a BIG difference.  With your participation and commitment, Sing and Sign can teach your family how to communicate before baby can talk.  Through music and singing, you learn the signs while baby enjoys the songs, instruments and props.  Classes are good fun and relaxed but with a strong emphasis on learning.

A Sing and Sign course runs for 10 weeks and each class lasts about 35-45 minutes.  In those 10 sessions, you can learn well over 100 signs.  Some signs are relevant to baby’s routine (milk, eat, change nappy); some are signs for things that babies are interested in (park, duck, train).  Bristol families say over and over again how much they enjoy Sing and Sign classes and how beneficial signing has been for them.
