Origami and Peace Week

We’ve been putting the world to rights alot recently, talking about what we’d change to make the world a better place. Today we’ve been discussing peace for peace week and how it’s easy to find peace when you are on your own but not so much when there’s a big mix of people around. We came up with different ways of making the playground a better place to be eg. if we see anyone alone ask them if they want to play, sharing a smile with others..etc..

So where does origami come into this? Well you need to be in a peaceful frame of mind to have a go at this excellent paper art, and of course the white bird represents peace too. So with a bit of patience and a lot of skill we’ve made beautiful origami birds on which we’ve written on our messages for peace in the mix…they’re hanging outside our classroom if you fancy a look!

Oh and for all of you who enjoyed making them here’s a great link to an origami website:
