Kids learn how to sign online

Have your say

CHILDREN in Sheffield schools will be learning how to use sign language through an interactive online lesson.

Monkey Manor, created for national charity SignHealth, features a character called Olli the monkey who learns to spell out the alphabet with his fingers.

Steven Powell, the charity’s chief executive, said: “It’s been a real challenge, but we have ended up with a unique and fun tool.”

Nine city schools have also signed up for a world record attempt for the most people signing and singing a song.
