Silence is golden

SILENCE could be golden for a children’s communication charity.

I Can is encouraging schools to sign up for a sponsored silence to help raise funds for its work with 1.2m children in the UK who struggle to communicate.

The charity has devised curriculum-linked lesson plans with activities to try during the silence, which can run for an hour, a lesson or a whole day.

It can be done at any time convenient to the school.
