Move aside Eminem and Jay-Z as Fenland youngsters do the Gingerbread Rap
BOOK week was a rapper’s delight for pupils at a Fenland school with a visit by author Jon Bridgeman.
The pupils at Alderman Jacobs School were enthralled as Jon worked with them to create a story as they got ready to celebrate Book Week.
He explained the processes he goes through to create his stories and how many changes he makes as he writes. The children then joined in with the Gingerbread Rap.
Alison Vardon, one of the school’s English leaders, said: “Jon’s enthusiasm was contagious, inspiring us all to go away and write.”
Jon commented: “The children were amazing. They used their imaginations to write a fantastic new story and almost deafened me joining in the Gingerbread Rap.

There were other activities on World Book Day and Year Six pupils visited the library at Sir Harry Smith Community College. The week ended with a super speller competition and the children wrote a descriptive piece about a strange object which arrived outside the school.
