On Wednesday 5 February the Pre-prep children all joined together, from the City and Madingley, to sing and sign a song to raise money for deaf children. 

In support of this event they all donated £1 and wore a scarf to sing in. 

The scarves were worn as the charity's mascot, the monkey, wears a striped scarf. One of the PrePrep children kindly dressed up their own toy monkey and he came in to school to join the event too. 

The PrePrep children have worked very hard to learn the song words and the signs for each part. We are pleased to announce that we raised nearly £70 to send to the charity, look out for us in the Cambridge News soon.

The children also made movies, in iMovie, to show what they did today. Please see an example of their own independent work below.

Now in its fourth year, sign2sing has become a major national fundraising initiative involving over 300,000 primary school children and adults in over 1,000 schools in the UK and abroad.

SignHealth is a healthcare charity for vulnerable deaf children and adults, aiming to inspire future generations of doctors, nurses, lawyers, healthcare workers and others, to learn sign language. The Stephen Perse Foundation Pre-prep children were invited, along with every school age child in the country, to take part in this fantastic annual event.

By singing and signing on Wednesday 5 February we were part of the world record attempt!
