  • Learning about his life and challenges that he has faced
  • Used and learnt a range of geographical information based on Jamaica
  • Data analysis based on where our families originated from

  1. I enjoyed creating our own poems in the style of Benjamin Zephaniah.I learnt that Benjamin Zephaniah would write poems based on where he lived and he would describe it as a vibrant and peaceful place.My favourite poem by Benjamin Zephaniah is we refugees.

  2. I enjoyed creating my own formal poem and reciting it aloud.I learnt a lot of facts about Benjamin Zephaniah such as he likes slang or he just used them in his poems.My favourite poem is talking turkey.
