Year 2 British Sign Language Choir
In the spirit of staying connected, in a time when many of us feel so far apart, Year 2 wanted to find a visual way to celebrate the power of community and imagination. With this in mind, we created our own British Sign Language Choir.
To create the choir, Miss Bowen broke the music - A Million Dreams, from the Greatest Showman - into verses and created tutorial videos to demonstrate the lyrics as sign language. The children then went away and in their own time, whilst learning remotely and with the help of their families, learnt the song. They then filmed themselves signing along to the lyrics, which Miss Bowen then compiled to make our choir.
We are really proud of our achievements, and Year 2 have shown great resilience, creativity and determination in learning this new skill. The video has reunited Year 2, and reminds us all that even though we are far apart, we can still be connected and achieve great things. We hope you enjoy our video, as much as we have enjoyed making it and let’s all remember what is possible when we join together as a team, challenge ourselves to learn something new and dream big – the world is ours to make!
