As part of National Poetry Day (and to tie in with our International School Award), Year 3 found out all about the poet, Benjamin Zephaniah, whose poetry is strongly influenced by the music and poetry of Jamaica where his family originates. We looked at Jamaica on a map and some of us talked about holidays we have had there. One of our favourite Zephaniah poems was ‘Talking Turkeys.’

Some of us read our favourite poems to the rest of the class.
