Design & Technology Lesson - The Art of Origami - 10th November 2009
In our topic ‘Around the World’, we studied Japan and their impressive paper folding tradition of Origami. We attempted to make a few of their designs, such as the ‘Leaping Frog’, ‘Talking Dog’, ‘The Horse’, ‘The Pelican’, ‘Hat’, ‘Boat’ and the ‘Ladybird’. We used many different skills such as Literacy – Following Instructions, Numeracy – Accurate folding and our artistic and design talents. We had lots of fun making our origami designs.
