Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Using Lámh Signs

If you have pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) in your school that use the Lámh Signs, it might be a good idea to teach this traditional Christmas song to all of the pupils in your class/school. Doing something like this with the whole class/school promotes inclusion and allows all pupils to learn some Lámh signs in a fun way.
