New to BSL and taking it into science!

Hi All, 

 

My name is Izzy, I am a secondary science teacher who has a fair few pupils who use BSL. 

We have our support but I decided I wanted to do more, I wanted to communicate 1to1 with these pupils and find ways that I can describe the world of science to them as I am more then aware BSL is even harder when science is brought in to it. 

I have a lovely year 7 pupil who each Friday tests my understanding of key words in science into BSL and then if I can put them in a sentence and he teaches me those with the help of one of the schools signers and I teach him the science!

I have also been working through the online course and loving it, but sometimes I wish I could practice a little bit more with people as practice makes perfect, right?

 

Look forward to getting to know some of you! 

Izzy

    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
