Straw And Order
Straw & Order
By Gaynor Body & Rebecca Kincaid
Ages 5-11 (Most suited to Years 3 & 4)

In a courtroom in the middle of Bethlehem …

The cows feel pushed out of their stable and they want it back! The donkeys, accused of having invited over a whole host of people, including a baby, deny all charges. Fed up by their petty squabbles and confused by the nature of the case, Judge Grumps is far from happy. Seeing this, the narrator offers to take him out of the courtroom to witness the night’s events firsthand.

As the judge encounters bickering innkeepers, self-important wise men, cool shepherds, some dancing sheep and a spectacular angel choir, everything starts to become clear. Rushing to the stable, the judge is humbled by the sight of Jesus and when he and all the characters experience the peace and love that this special baby has brought in to the world, it seems that the judge’s verdict is inevitable.

Why not try signing the song?
At Out of the Ark we believe singing can and should be inclusive. With that in mind, we have created an easy-to-follow signing video for the Official 2015 Red Nose Day Schools’ Song to show you just how easy it is to learn to sign the chorus and include everyone in your school.

Sign language is literally a ‘hands-on’ teaching tool that helps ALL children to learn. Alongside the obvious benefits for deaf children, research has shown that sign language helps children who have English as a second language, special needs children and children with speech and language difficulties. So, including sign language in all areas of teaching really does facilitate an inclusive environment for learning. And on top of all that... signing your singing is great fun!

Our signing video employs an inclusive communication approach for both deaf and hearing children, using a combination of British Sign Language (BSL) and Signed Supported English (SSE).

With thanks to Majella Williams, Specialist Teacher for the Deaf at Eastbury Primary School, for her valuable input.
