Week Nine Challenge

This week we are setting a challenge to learn a new skill.  We would like you to learn a little bit about sign language.  Fingerspelling is a method of spelling words using hand movements. The fingerspelling alphabet is used in sign language to spell out names of people and places for which there is not a sign . Learn the British Sign Language Finger Spelling alphabet and record yourself signing your name. You could share your new skill by emailing your film to your class teacher using your class email.


You could use the charts below to help you or visit:
