Last week was NZ Sign language week. At school we had a visit from a lady who taught us some signs that we could use at school or with our friends and family. We learnt how to sign our names by finger spelling and we also learnt how to sign some colours and some animal names. In Room 3 we had a discussion about the times when people would need to communicate in Sign. Can you imagine going through life never hearing the sound of the waves or your Mum and Dads voice!!
You might be interested in learning some other signs...you can visit this web site for some demonstrations on how to do them.
Here are the photos of us learning some sign language with Room 4 children.
