My good friend John Farrell wrote to me:
“I had a small group in on Tuesday lunchtime and showed them the first part of your video about how to make the stem, which we all folded from green copy paper. They struggled a little with the reverse fold, but they have it now. Today (Wednesday) we stayed in again at lunchtime and folded the flower part. They did very well at that. I had to help some of them to collapse it into the gem shape. One of the children assembled the two parts herself with only the briefest of instruction and then proceeded to help the others. All in all, a great success!”
John works hard in his Midlands school to encourage and promote origami, it’s brilliant that something of mine has proved useful! Here is a photo of their work.
