As they sing, the backing singers sign the words of the song in Makaton. At the end of the song an animated Widgit symbol for ‘your turn’ appears on-screen. The song is repeated. During the repeat the words to the song appear as captions in the bottom of the frame and the camera focuses on the backing singers - encouraging viewers to sing the song with them.
