Sheffield 1st Ward Primary

This blog is all about using British Sign Language in Primary. Singing time to be more exact. If you look at the pages on the right side menu you’ll find videos of the songs we are learning for 2012 presentation and more. None of the signs are an official Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints interpretation, because there is no official one. We are just doing the best we know how to include the wonderful deaf girl in our primary.

A special request for some more signing!

on March 15, 2011

Even though we have made this blog to help the children and their parents in Sheffield 1 learn to sign, news of this has reached others. Which is brilliant, because if there are other deaf children in primary in england, which there are bound to be, their teachers are going to need a little bit of help learning to sign language too. We’ve been asked if we could video the sign language for the new presentation song “If I listen with my heart”. The way in which we have decided to sign these songs is so instead of rephrasing the line as you would  do to interpret, we sign the specific words of the songs. This way the children learn the exact sign for each word.
