THESE youngsters look set to find their own place in the record books.

The pupils at Plover Primary School, in Intake, took part in a national bid to set the record for the most people performing a song, while doing sign language for the words.

It was part of a project called Sign2Sing, organised by the charity Sign Health, which involved hundreds of pupils at the Coniston Road school as well as staff and parents.

They sang and did sign language actions for the New Seekers song I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing.

Teacher for the deaf, Ruth Everingham, co-ordinated the event at Plover.

Headteacher John Hill was among those taking part in the record bid. He said if all the groups who had pledged to take part did, the record would have been broken, but the charity was still awaiting conformation from some.

He said: “We are still keeping our fingers crossed that we have broken the record. We had 352 taking part here.”
