During the first half of the Spring term we held the second of this year's whole school topical focused weeks. This time focusing upon the 20th Anniversary of Anthony Gormley’s Angel of the North. This topic permeated through subjects in activities such as size, scale, height and measure in mathematics; materials, recycling and the environment in science; sculpture in art and technology, the work of Anthony Gormley etc. All of these activities gave us the opportunity to extend vocabulary, enrich language and create inspiration for writing.

As part of this experience we created our own ‘Angel of the North’ in the grounds, using recycled materials. Please scroll down to view a selection of photographs of our 'Angel of the North' sculpture in the making.
