"I would once again like to thank all of the parents, staff and children for their support and hard work in preparing for our Sign2Sing charity event on Wednesday the 5th of February. The children sang and signed excellently on the day and we are looking forward to hearing from the charity as to whether or not we managed to break a new world record. Monday's bake sale was also a huge success and we made a fantastic £92.50. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sainsbury's for their kind donations of cakes, they were very well received by all and sold out in record time! I look forward to updating you all about our final fundraising total in the next school newsletter."
"This month we are learning British Sign Language which will correlate with our 'Sign2sing' fundraising event next month. The 'Sign2sing' charity supports deaf and vulnerable children and young adults and is extremely grateful for our pledge to help through donations and fundraising. In preparation for this event we will be learning two songs and their accompanying signs which we will perform in an assembly on the 5th of February, one of which we listened to and watched in our Language of the Month assembly today (see pictures). The children seem very excited about our new language and are keen to demonstrate their new signing skills!"
