Signing can be useful because
Why are we using Lámh in St. Patrick’s B.N.S?
A number of children in our school are using Lámh with their families and we want to give them the best chance to communicate well in school. We have found that using Lámh signs with the whole class, especially in the early years, helps all children with communication issues. In addition to this, the children find Lámh signing fun.
This year, we are hoping to include the wider school community in engaging with Lámh. We will have Lámh leaders teach the sign of the week to all pupils in assembly time each morning. We will also be offering prizes for the most eager Lámh users in every classroom. We hope that this will help our current Lámh users communicate more easily around the school.
How can you help at home?
Ask your child what the Lámh sign of the week is! Maybe you could learn it too! For more information on Lámh, visit www.lamh.org.
