Wearable Arts

TWe have been learning all about design on our way to create our wearable art garment. We started with some challenges…
1. In teams create and build the tallest tower
Our tower was very tall, but then it fell over...
Our tower is the tallest, but we didn't finish in time.
We worked together; sharing ideas and elping each other. We have learned that it is really important to design and plan our creations before we start. This means we all know what we are trying to make.
2. Build a shelter for Leo our class bear

We learned that it can be very tricky to work in groups and we all have to take turns.
3. Work together to create a costume for 1 member of our team to model. 

Here we are in our costumes!
We remembered that it is important to design our work before we start. We also learned that we have to be careful with our materials, newspaper and tinfoil rip quiet easily.

We are going to use what we have learned to create our wearable arts garment.

Success Criteria:
Research and find my inspiration
Design and plan my garment (How I see things)
Follow my plan to create my garment
Create a garment that is going to last

Reflection

My favourite part was:  showing our garment on the stage because it was exciting and we got to show them to everyone.

It was really hard when: going where our group goes during the dance because all of them went in different places.

Something that really helped me was: my mum with my making and doing lots of thinking and planning before we started helped too.

Something new I learned was: doing art on clothing and you can wear art.

Wow Heidi! You had a clear plan of what you wanted and you worked hard to create two fantastic pieces. You listened to advice and accepted help as you needed it, what a great learner. I think you have a great understanding of the design process (starting with planning, and then some creating, changing, creating and fixing). It has been a pleasure to watch you work and to share this time with you.
I bet you had a great time sharing your learning with mum.

Body parts in Te Reo

LWe are learning the body parts in Te Reo with our buddies. We have worked hard to create a poster to show our learning.

Success Criteria:
  • I have at least 6 body parts clearly labeled on my poster
  • I have the English and Māori words on my poster
  • I can sing a simple waiata (song) in Te Reo Māori about the parts of the body

My favourite part was: learning the body parts in māori

It was really hard when: getting the spelling all right, my buddy was telling me what I should push.

Something that really helped me was: the Te Tinana poster and sing the head and shoulders song helped me.

Something new I learned was: the names of my body in Te Reo, like ihu is my nose.

You and your buddy have worked together to create a a fabulous poster with loads of body parts labelled in English and Te Reo. I can see you guys used the success criteria to help you, what great learners!
Remember when labelling posters it is important to think about colours. We want the text to be very easy to read.
