Primary school pupils take part in Sign2Sing world record attempt
Pupils are hoping they have signed and sung their way into the record books after joining in a national attempt.
On Thursday, 360 children at Glade Primary School in Atherton Road, Ilford, took part in Sign2Sing along with about 130,000 people from 975 schools and other groups in the UK.
The young children showed their expertise at sign language by taking part in a song, which they hope will be part of the largest sign language sing-song ever.
The school received DVDs to teach the children three songs and help raise their awareness of signing.
James Swan, 9, said: “It was fun and exciting.

The record-breaking attempt also raised funds for the organisers, the SignHealth charity, who were responsible for the current record of 94,000 last year.
