PUPILS have been using sign language to sing along to a specially written song to raise money for charity.

And in doing so, the children of Roseacre Primary Academy hope to have helped set a new world record for the number of people signing and singing simultaneously.

Across the country hundreds of thousands of children performed Sign2Sing’s song at 2.45pm for the charity Sign Health.

Their efforts were recorded, and will be shown to the people behind the Guinness World Records to verify a new World Record has been set.

The record currently stands at 114,277, set by Sign Health in February last year.

At Roseacre, the efforts are down to teacher Daniel Salmon.

He said: “I have been teaching the children the song and the sign language.

“My background is in sign language so it’s something I encourage in school.”

Each child paid £1 to take part in the event for Sign Health, which supports vulnerable deaf children and adults.
