Young­sters join in sign2sing and learn to reach out

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

PUPILS at a Che­sham school helped sup­port deaf aware­ness by tak­ing part in an an­nual event.

Elmtree In­fant and Nurs­ery School in Elm Tree Hill, Che­sham, once again took part in the an­nual sign2sing event, to raise money and aware­ness of SignHealth – a Bea­cons­field-based char­ity which raises funds to help vul­ner­a­ble deaf chil­dren and adults.

Chil­dren learnt a spe­cially writ­ten song called Reach Out Your Hand and its sim­ple signs to per­form along with.

The pupils per­formed the song at the school’s weekly Well Done as­sem­bly on Fe­bru­ary 5.

Head­teacher Daphne Dru said: “Elmtree In­fant and Nurs­ery School is proud to take part in the an­nual sign2sing event. As a school which uses Maka­ton sign­ing to sup­port our pupils, it is im­por­tant to us to sup­port deaf aware­ness ev­ery year. We are for­tu­nate our mu­sic teacher, El­lie James, is able to teach the chil­dren the song and the signs, and teach­ers prac­tise the song in their classes.”
