The event will take place across the country and overseas Wednesday, 6, February 2013.
Steve Powell, Chief Executive at SignHealth said: "Any schools in Chippenham that decide to take part will be joining hundreds of schools all over the country and in other countries at GMT 2:45pm on Wednesday, February 6 when they attempt to break the world record."
Schools who sign up for the event will gain access to digital resources to help children learn sign language by Digital Giving who are in partnership with SignHealth.
"The digital resources are available to all schools that register for sign2sing and include a free whiteboard app," Steve Powell added.
The resource features a 'Monkey Manor' which will encourage the children to learn sign language and gain information as part of the experience.
The world record attempt is aimed at four to eleven year olds however anyone is welcome to join in the event.
As well as attempting to break the world record the event will be fundraising for SignHealth with £1 being donated by each person who takes part.
The money from the fundraiser will be used to continue the charity's work helping to improve mental and physical health and well being of deaf adults and children.
