Book review: Our School Signs

Written by Cath Smith
Available from Amazon Print on Demand
Ages: 5–10

Reviewed by Jane (Teacher of the Deaf)

"I love the books from the Let’s Sign series by Cath Smith. We use several from the series within our school already and I’m delighted that Our School Signs has been released as it targets our needs and responsibilities within our Hearing Impaired Unit (HIU) perfectly. As per all books from the range, Our School Signs helps us to teach British Sign Language (BSL) to our deaf children, children within the mainstream and the wider network of staff within the school. We host two Signing Clubs at school, both of which are popular with the children and staff, and this particular book enables us to teach signs that are most relevant to school, school topics and school amenities and helps us to label equipment too. The ‘Link the Sign to the Word’ puzzle at the end of each section has also been very well received.

A parent of a child within our HIU commented that they may buy the book too as it will help to give them a greater level of knowledge about the topic of ‘school’ and fill in gaps they’ve not learnt while gaining their BSL qualifications.

It’s a fantastic book, clear and easy to follow, and really does contribute to getting everyone successfully through their school day."
