In Ruby Class, we know that black lives matter. We celebrate the impact black people have had and continue to have in culture. Hair can be a big part of our identity. Therefore, in our class, we learned about the importance of hair in black culture and the various ways black people care for it and style it. We listened to the story ‘I Love My Hair’ by Natasha Tarpley that the children enjoyed. The discussions that took place were very fruitful, and it was a very proud moment for me as their teacher.
For our Hall Art, we took inspiration from the artist Tyler Clarke and created our own 3D artwork using synthetic hair. The children were very creative and were able to choose a specific hairstyle that they wanted. We hope you like it and much as we do
