Sign2Sing is an annual event that takes place for a week. This year, it starts on 3rd February. But what’s it all about, how can you get involved and what resources are available for schools to use?
What is Sign2Sing?
Sign2Sing is an annual event. It’s run by a charity called SighHealth and is aimed at promoting sign language as a method of communication as well as making music more accessible to those who can’t hear it. The aim of the week is to get as many people as possible signing along to a song – will you get your school involved?
In 2013, the charity broke the record for the most people signing along to a song, with 116,980 people taking part at the same time. Lots of schools up and down the country get involved every year – if you work in a school, college or alternative provision, why not see if you can get your team to register and take part this year?
Lots of resources available
SignHealth make it super easy to get involved – they provide tutorials, resources and guidance for you to use. All they ask is that each person who takes part makes a small donation for their charity to enable them to keep the great work they do going year on year. If you’re from a school and are interested in getting involved, there is a section on their website just for you!
What do their tutorial videos look like?
Here is one from 2018: As you can see, it’s very clear and easy to follow. Could you be the person from your school who takes the time to coordinate this and get the children signing along?
