Language of the Term - British Sign Language

In Term 1 we're learning about British Sign Language. Find out about BSL and learn some simple signing on the Mind Your Language! page and take on one of Miss Wilson's Golden Ticket Challenges.


We were very lucky on Thursday to welcome Jody, a sign language interpreter, to Hillcrest. The children were transfixed during our British Sign Language assembly. They signed the alphabet, watched Miss Wilson and Jody sign a conversation about dogs and learned a little bit about Deaf culture. Some children even learned how to describe our two school dogs, Wilma and Barney, using sign language!
