Little learners from Luton’s Icknield Primary School have been signing and singing to raise money to help vulnerable deaf children in the UK and Uganda.

The children took part in ‘sign2sing,’ a fundraising event organised by the deaf health charity SignHealth.

They learned a special song with signs, which they performed to parents and carers. They also donated to the charity on the day.

Icknield Primary has a strong culture of signing as the school is the home of Luton’s Hearing Impaired Pre-school and Primary Outreach Service.

Deaf children are educated alongside their hearing peers and the school has its own signing choir.

Headteacher Lyn Lyman said: “Sign2sing was a perfect match for our three Cs - care, co-operation and communication - which inform everything we do in school.

“The children learned the song and signs very quickly and had great fun demonstrating their skills while raising money for a really important cause.”
