Perfect poetry in Year 3

 Continuing with our work on Black History Month, today in Literacy we were inspired by Lamont Lilly's poem 'All Natural':

I like the kind of hair
that will stand up for its rights
the kind that kicks
screams and protests.
the kind that resists
and boycotts with every coil
the kind that fights
riots and rebels.
the kind that won’t
be quiet for nobody.
the kind that won’t
be anything but black.
the kind that refuses
to relax

We used this poem and our own ideas and words on hair to create our own acrostics and freestyle poems. 

We then read them aloud to the class, considering our volume, tone and intonation.
