Christmas pandas!

As part of our in-school Christmas celebrations and to celebrate the arrival of Tiantian and Yang Guang to Edinburgh zoo (they are pandas, not children, fear not!) our Hanban teacher Rui Zhu led workshops on origami pandas with KS3 and KS4 groups.  The origami is a little tricky (I had a go, so I know!) but the students really got stuck in and came up with some very creative designs!
