Year 7 have been re-capping during music lessons on the superb progress that has been made so far this term with both our singing and signing. Both hold equal importance as Lansdowne School – we place as much emphasis on signing as we do singing.
We find that using this inclusive form of communication helps to support learning across the complete curriculum. A great place to start introducing all pupils to signing is through music! Year 7 have been starting and ending each music lesson this term with a little extra signing knowledge as the term progresses.
We have been singing and signing Three Little Birds, Walking on Sunshine and Wave the Flag. We are fortunate to be joined in or music lessons with the expertise help of an adult signer who can help the pupils with their learning. You can watch the enthusiasm from our Year 7 signers in the short video above.
