Year 7 Urban Models

Here are a selection of some of the models produced by year 7 for their Urban Model Making Homework.  There were some fantastic entries but we have chosen six of the best to showcase here.  We will also be looking at some models that year 7 students at Court Fields School in Somerset have made you can view these  Court Field Student Models here


This model uses different colour houses from Monopoly to show the different type of land use and also some 3D models for the CBD. Trees in the outer suburbs show again that there are more parks and as you can see the inner suburbs (yellow houses) have gardens where as the terraced houses don’t.


This model uses photographs of the different types of land use you would expect to find here.


Again photographs show the different types of Land Use and flags highlight the different zones.  This model also has the unique facility of the zones being able to spin around!


This model uses 3D buildings and photographs to show the land use.  They have shown how in the CBD we are likely to find high rise buildings due to the cost of the land it is cheaper to build upwards.


This uses photographs to show the different heights and types of buildings in a panorama form.  This looks like the sky line outside our window and you can even see Tower Bridge!


This not only shows the different zones but also the transect of a city.  You can see the factory at the back which didn’t fit in with this particular transect.

 All very different models in technique, well done year 7 and to those of you who were not featured in this post.

    Hi St Ursula’s.
    We were very impressed with your urban models. You obviously worked really hard, and the work is very creative and informative at the same time.
    Thanks for taking the time to review the work from Court Fields School. Our school is located in a very small town in Somerset, so we are not really experts on cities. If you follow this link you can see where our school is:
    We have made a very short video about your work as well. You can see it here:

    Best wishes
