Hurray for Abingdon School in Oxfordshire, who are teaching their bin lids how to use their loaf of bread and learn some proper cockney rhyming slang!

The fun lesson was inspired by a Birmingham Stage Company’s production of ‘Awful Auntie’ by David Walliams. One of the key characters is a young Londoner called Soot (can you guess what he does for his bread and honey?) and he uses cockney rhyming slang throughout the story.

The kids loved trying their hand at cockney rhyming slang and will no doubt be looking forward to the show which will be staged at the New Theatre in Oxford in October.
