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.”
