That’s fantastic! You’ve every right to be very proud! My eldest is profoundly deaf (she doesn’t sign though), and I’ve noticed the bbc seem to be doing a lot more for deaf awareness week this year than in previous.

Amazing! Well done him and how exciting! Definitely a well deserved boast moment. flowers

He sent me the link this afternoon. I love the way they have changed some of the words from sing to sign.... ☺ ☺ ☺

👏🏻 👏🏻 Fabulous!

Proud Mum to a deaf four year old here. Loving that deaf awareness week is being brought to the masses more at the moment.

That's amazing! Well done mini elderflower star

That's lovely OP, thanks for sharing the video

He's fluent in BSL and Makaton. He's passed all 4 Makaton Stages during lockdown and is studying for his BSL Stage 2 exam at the moment. His teacher is used by the BBC a lot to sign the Government briefings.
It's a great annoyance to me that the English Government won't have a signer in the room for their briefings when Scotland and Wales do.
Even less of an excuse now they have a bigger briefing room...

What a great video. Well done mini Elderflower. Music is our universal language and something that brings us all together. It's a beautiful thing.

Boast away! What an amazing ds you have!

Mumbot345635 Mon 03-May-21 23:04:22

Aw love it!
And yes you are right - the conservatives should have more respect for inclusion and have a signer at the briefings.
