Songs and Resources - Signed Video

The Song Bank houses all of our songs alongside the many resources available. LOG IN or REGISTER to access these. Please note, the Difficulty indicator is a guideline – if you aren’t sure which songs to sing with your group, simply get in touch.

Our signed videos, created by Dr Paul Whittaker OBE, enable those with hearing loss to engage with the Friday Afternoons project. These videos are ideal for class teachers and students to learn to sign the songs, with notes to explain the decisions taken in translating the words to sign.
