BSL at our school
British Sign Language (BSL) is a recognised minority language in the United Kingdom. It is a visual language that uses gestures, facial expression and body language to communicate. Many deaf people use BSL as their first language so learning BSL is a great life skill to have; you never know when you might need it! Just remember that BSL is only used in the United Kingdom, other countries have their own sign languages.
At Whitehall Primary School, we offer BSL to all children and adults at different times of the school year. Did you know we also have BSL lunchtime clubs?
This page is to help you learn BSL through different topics. You can watch these videos as many times as you like and come back to any video to practise your skills.
Have fun learning with our videos and we hope to see and sign with you soon!
To practise more and compete against yourself and time, have a go at playing the spelling game linked below:

Colours and objects
Look for different coloured objects or things around your house? What colour is your favourite toy? What colours can you see in the fruit bowl? What about your front door, what colour is that?
Try this: red cap, white t-shirt and blue jeans.
*Remember the word order and sign cap first, then red.
What about your uniform? Sign what you wear to school!
