Black History Month in Year 2

As part of our learning about Black History Month we have been researching two famous poets. First we used the internet to research Valerie Bloom, we discovered that she was originally born in Jamaica and moved to the UK in 1979.  We loved listening to and joining in with her performance poetry which introduced us to Jamaican patois. 

We also researched Benjamin Zephania and discovered that although he was born in Birmingham in the UK his work is also influenced by the music and poetry from Jamaica. We also found out that he likes to write songs , plays and act.
