CHILDREN’S book favourite Olli the monkey visited St Andrew’s Church of England Infant School to help pupils learn sign language for a charity world record breaking attempt.

The kids went bananas went Olli visited the school in High Street, Great Linford on Tuesday.

The popular primate was helping children to learn how to sign ahead of yesterday’s nationwide sign2sing event.

Schools from all around the country were attempting to break the world record for the most people signing and singing a song at the same time.

Last year almost 95,000 children took part and this time school kids sang a song entitled, ‘sign2sing’.

Chief executive of SignHealth Steve Powell said: “We are delighted Olli visited St Andrew’s Infant School.”
