Hi, it's prob too late now, a few games we have played. 1, RABBIT. One person in a circle points to another, that person has to immediately adopt a bunny pose, with fingers (Dog Sign) pointing down infront of them. Person on their right has to add ears as 2 fingers up and person on their left, has to add the other ear to create the bunny. After a few practice rounds, you start eliminating people for being too slow.

Another is Fruit Salad. Seated like in Musical Chairs, pick 3 fruits such as apple, orange and pineapple and go around the circle 1,2,3, apple orange pineapple, till everyone is a fruit, including the teacher who is standing in a gap which is part of the circle. Teacher calls out a fruit, and those students switch places, the teacher aims to get into one of those seats, which means someone is left standing. That person now picks a fruit and game continues. Fast paced and fun. Then add 1 other element. When the person standing signs Fruit Salad, everyone has to switch places, which will still leave someone standing. Naturally all Fruits are signed, so watching and concentrating are key. Enjoy

So sorry for the late reply, my class loved them, we had a few games the first week back to get them in the swing again. 

 

If you have anymore ideas that would be great ☺

    • So a while ago I did  video for YouTube and have found it again. If you feel like practicing with me I'm open to helping out    
    • Cassie you are my hero! Thanks
    • Hi Alex, These may help... Forwards Defence Back (Last video):  You are correct about the sign for Black White Pairs Stay Close  (signs for 'near' only)   Also correct for well done/congrats: Well done
    • Hello, haven't used BSL since primary school, but have recently had some children who are deaf join a sports club I help with.  They have a translator with them but I was wondering if you could help me out with a few words so if they are watching us coach rather than their translator they will still get what we are saying Forwards (position) and Go Forwards Defence Go back Black (I believe this is moving your fist along your jawline?) White Pairs Stay Close Well Done (or is congratulations - thumbs up in moving in circles - good for this?)   Thank you in advance! Alex
    • Hello,  This year I have completed a level 1 BSL summer school and had a handful of weekly level 2 1-1 lessons. I really need to have more conversation practice. I'm looking for someone of the same if not higher ability than me to Skype on a weekly basis. I would much prefer a female buddy if possible.  Look forward to signing with you!  Jasmine  
    • Hello Sharon,  I started weekly level 2 lessons in July and did a level 1 summer school. I have no links to the deaf and signing community other than my current 1-1 tutor. Would you be interested in skyping once a week for a 'voice off' short conversation? I can try and commit to a weekly half hour slot or better still we could decide on a weekly adhoc basis?    Jasmine 
    • Hi all im Lisa, I work for a care agency and support a variety of clients, recently we took on a package which are a married couple who are both mute/deaf, she has dementia as well and due to other issues is struggling with her mobility, im trying to learn different signs that help with her care routine, for example I would like to print off and laminate some cards with signs on such as stand, sit, move back etc.   I'm hoping that if the sign is on the card along with the command then carers will begin to pick up bits of the signing which would be a great way of communicating with them.   thanks for reading x
    • Hi all, my name is Nai and I started learning BSL at the beginning of Aug 2018.  I completed the Introduction to BSL through 'British Sign' and am absolutely loving it.  Am keen to move forward with the next level and practice with others. x
