Professor Elemental, who performs in the character of a Victorian British eccentric and describes his musical style as ‘steampunk chap-hop’, joined year 5 and 6 children for workshops as well as performing for the whole school in assemblies.

He taught the pupils about the craft of creating rap lyrics before they wrote their own verses about their identities.

They then performed their raps on stage with him in the school’s geography jamboree, where each year group showed what they had learnt throughout the week.

Teacher Jonny Walker, who is also the geography coordinator at the Upton Park Road school, said: “Professor Elemental’s visit was, to use one of his own favoured words, splendid!

“The children and teachers were inspired and amused by his eccentric persona and dazzling lyrical abilities.

“His visit was the perfect end to a successful week celebrating the children’s high quality learning in geography.”
