I'm trying to learn either a BSL or SSE version of a song (below) I normally use with my (450) primary science pupils. They know the song in English and, as we're not allowed to sing in class at the moment, I thought it would give an opportunity to teach some signs and raise awareness of BSL in the school. That said, I am a complete beginner myself and was hoping someone could maybe help or give me advice on ow to go about it. Thanks. Audrey This is the song - Plants are growing Rivers are flowing Birds are flying Whales are diving It's a world of wonder See the stars shine bright It's a world of wonder Rockets blast up high Dark clouds are forming Rain is falling Lightning is flashing Thunder is crashing Big gorillas are stomping Alligators are chomping Bugs are crawling Snow is falling Science is cool for me and you Learning how things work and what they do Use your 5 senses everyday Observe all around as you work and play
I am a beginner to BSL myself, but have a role i teaching Spanish, etc in our primary school. I currently teach STEM and often use a songs, particularly with the younger children. Our Covid guidance at present means we are not allowed to sing and I thought that might give an opportunity to use Sign Supported English to learn some signs for songs we already know instead, Hope that makes sense. That said, I'm not really sure where to begin, so wish me luck.
