Pupils at a Redbridge primary school are learning songs in sign language to help transform the lives of children with hearing issues.
Using their voices and their hands, the pupils of Glade Primary School, in Atherton Road, Clayhall, delivered a rousing performance of a song called ‘Friends Forever’ at an assembly on February 7.
Through collecting donations from their performance, the school have raised £132 for deaf health charity Sign Health
Music teacher Davida Robinson said: “The children really enjoy this event and worked very hard in learning the song both at school and at home.”
In the weeks leading up to the assembly, the pupils learned how to sign the songs in their music lessons and using online tutorials at home.
