This BSL Numbers 1 to 10 bee sign (Set A) demonstrates the British Sign Language two-handed signs for numbers 1 to 10. The colourful design is illustrated with a friendly bee and honeycomb motif that is especially suited to nursery and EYFS children. It is cut-to-shape for even more visual impact and to help engage young pupils.
BSL Numbers are subject to regional variation. We have produced signage for the two most commonly used versions for BSL Numbers 1 to 10 using two hands for numbers 6 to10 which is often preferred for using with young children. These can all be signed with just the dominant hand (right hand as drawn) as in the adult BSL community.
In Set A, the numbers 5 to 6 are signed with the dominant hand starting from the little finger and proceeding towards the thumb.
Set B is available here.
The illustrations have been created by our partner, and the leading BSL resource provider in the UK, LET’S SIGN. Working with LET’S SIGN ensures our BSL signs are as clear and accurate as possible.
Whole school involvement in sign language doesn’t just benefit deaf children – it is a valuable teaching strategy for children with a wide range of additional speech and language needs. Signing is also proving to be a valuable learning tool for children with no additional needs. Most importantly, it helps to ensure a fully inclusive environment.
The sign can be customised with a uniform colour to suit your school.
