The Support for Learning base was filled on Thursday with enthusiastic BSL learners, both staff and pupils. We were introduced to our tutors Ian Galloway and Rachael Griffiths from Lanarkshire Deaf Club, and interpreter Helen Pennan, who will work with us over the next ten weeks. Our first task was to learn the finger spelling alphabet, then introduce ourselves and finger spell our names. Individuals were put on the spot when we had to perform our tasks in front of the whole class- quite nerve-wracking!
We were then given a homework pack- the first of many, we were informed- to learn for next session. Everyone contributed enthusiastically and we can’t wait for our next BSL session.
Many thanks to our new teachers!
