Its a maths rap
Children at a primary school were given a hand with learning their times tables by a rap artist.
Jahmaal Noel Fyffe, otherwise known as Chipmunk, spent part of an afternoon at Cleves Primary School recently, encouraging Year 6 pupils to learn their multiplication times tables.
His surprise visit was part of a six-week initiative at the school in Arragon Road, East Ham to help the children learn their times tables from one to 12 to a rap.
They will be recording their efforts in July.
Marie De Silva, a co-ordinator for the choir and the founder of Vocal Breakthrough, a group that teaches singing to children said the students enjoyed the visit and asked Chipmunk lots of questions.
