Nativity play raises awareness of child speech impairments

First Minister Carwyn Jones will join parents at a Newport school to watch pupils perform a special Nativity today.

Pupils will perform songs using sign language to raise awareness of children with speech impediments.

Malpas Court Primary School has a specific language impairment class which helps children with speech difficulties from Newport, Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen and Monmouthshire.

The pupils use 'Signalong', where key words and phrases are depicted by sign language.
