In Year 3, we are looking at poetry and the poet Valerie Bloom. We have begun to immerse ourselves in different poems written by Bloom that have a Jamaican influence. Such as 'Shopping' and 'De Familiar Tings.'
Today (9.10.18) we looked at the poem 'shopping' in more detail. As a class, we discussed the language used in the poem as well as listening to traditional Jamaican music in order to influence us as we performed the poem for the rest of our class.
