Cynthia's Visit to class AT
Cynthia is a Jamaican lady who lives in Ipswich and she came in to talk about Jamaica to us so we would
have a better idea of what Jamaica's like. She was wearing traditional
Jamaican clothes which she had made. She was wearing a skirt, a top, and a head scarf that
are made out of Calico which is a sort of cotton cloth.
The way you would put your head scarf on is
you would get the piece of material, fold it in half, and tie it round
your head, then tuck it in so it doesn't fall off your head. Her clothing
was stripy and very colourful which is what Jamaican people would wear. In
Jamaica, because it's very hot, people would usually wear short sleeves
and they would wear very colourful clothing.
