Model Making – The Angel of the North

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed making a model of the Angel of the North using thin copper wire.

The structure of the main body of the Angel was made using a foam pipe covered in newspaper and masking tape. This allowed use to create the shape of the legs and body of the Angel.

We now have two finished models of the Angel of the North. One stands on display in our International Corridor and the other in our classroom. We are very proud of our models!
