Children learn how to sign the Christmas carol 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'


'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' reference sheet


1) Sing through 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas', before learning the signs to make sure the children remember the words.
2) Introduce each line of the song to the children in sign language, getting the children to practise it. Then work through the whole song from the start adding a half/whole of a line each time it is run through. Younger children this can be done is groups with leader, older scouts could practise using the reference sheet themselves.
3) Practise signing and signing the song all the way through as a whole group.
4) Perform it at your carol concert!
