Children perform carols with a twist

Primary school children took to King’s Lynn Morrisons last Friday to sing Christmas carols to shoppers while also using sign language. 

A selection of children from Ashwicken Primary School – including three Year Reception pupils sang Christmas favourites, but also put into practice the sign language they have been learning at school. 

Year Reception teacher Lucy Hudson said: “We have been using sign language at the school since 2020 to raise awareness of it. Pupils and parents really got behind it.

“It went really well and was amazing. We got some positive feedback too.” 

From the event, a  total of £120 was raised for charity.

The school is also incorporating sign language into their Christmas nativity and will soon be taking part in Trinity Rotary Club’s Schools Make Music event at Alive’s Corn Exchange.
