What sign language is this?

Hope this is in the right place! Kids were learning signing today in school- days of the week. I looked up the signs so I could learn them too but they are not the same as BSL, Maketon or ASL I found on youtube. Pointing to each finger on left hand for Mon-Thu, then hands on face somehow for Fri and Sat and praying hands for Sunday. Does anyone know what sign language that is?

Sounds like signalong to me, but difficult to tell without actually seeing the sign.

I think it's Scottish dialect of Bsl sounds similar anyway

Could be a dialect of BSL - I know NI BSL has different signs for days of the week - Saturday is like polishing shoes - |I think they used to do this in NI deaf schools on a Saturday.

I've seen people use the sign I would gloss as 'asian' for Saturday and the praying sign for Sunday.

Where are you OP?
