An Angel Just Like Me

Whole school project...

This term we have come together to take part in a whole school project using the book - An Angel just like Me by Mary Hoffman. In the story Tyler asks why angels are all pink with golden hair. Our children have then considered the following questions: What do the children think? If angels exist, what colour are they? Can you have black angels like Tyler? Why do they think it’s so hard to find Christmas cards and decorations with black angels on?

For this term's whole school response we have made an angel using 'hands' from all the children in school to produce the feathers for the wing. Our angel has their back to us and so you cannot see their face - What do you think the face would look like?
