Do You Speak Seagull?


Do You Speak Seagull? from Lilian Simonsson on Vimeo.

Using elements of nature and the works of Deaf poet Richard Carter as starting points, Deaf and signing ONCA facilitators worked with Year 4 and 5 students from St Bartholomew’s School to generate responses incorporating the creative, playful use of sign language. Funded by a Clore Poetry & Literature Award, this was a new, enriching experience for participants to explore and celebrate a multiplicity of approaches to interpreting, generating and sharing poetry. Key benefits to participants were increased self-confidence and expression of feelings among a group of learners with a range of additional learning support needs.
