Pyjama and Onesie Mufti Day

We had a Mufti Day on Friday 16 September as a fundraiser for Room 6's camp next term. Room 6 chose the theme, which was Pyjamas and Onesies. As you can see from the photographs, most of Room 5 dressed up. Great effort, Room 5!

Frida Kahlo


Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo, who lived in Mexico,  was known for her fabulous self portrait artwork. She was born on the 6th of July 1907 and died in 1954, 19 days after  her birthday.

Frida caught polio at the age of 6 that made one leg weaker and made her crippled. At the age of 18 she was in a serious bus crash that made  her bedridden in hospital for 3 months. Frida Kahlo spent her time doing self portraits while she was bedridden.
Frida Kahlo put lots of scenes of nature in the background of her paintings, such as kittens, monkeys, birds, vines and lots more detail. If you have a close look, you can see her dark eyebrows, they were known as a monobrow and she became famous for these.

In my opinion the background of Frida Kahlo’s paintings look good, I also like how she blends her nature scenes in with her self-portrait.
