THESE Doncaster youngsters are hoping to find themselves a place in the record books today.

Pupils at Plover Primary School are taking part in a national bid to set the record for the most people perfoming a song while doing sign language for the words.

Ruth Everingham, the teacher for the deaf at the Coniston Road school, has been co-ordinating her pupils’ efforts at Plover, part of an event called sign2sing, running today. They trained with a DVD.

She said: “It’s been a real buzz all through the school. Some of parents have asked to join in too.”

They are joining pupils from all across the country who will be performing the actions to the New Seekers song I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.

The national charity SignHealth was hoping that 15,000 school children will take part in the attempt across the country.

The record is 13,418 but more than 90,000 have expressed an interest.
