Wearable Arts



We 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...










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
  • Create a piece of art – an idea or a story or message

Reflection

My favourite part was: making my bat wings and mask and getting all messy because it is just like getting all muddy in the grass.

It was really hard when: to do the making with my broken collarbone but I still did my plan.

Something that really helped me was: my mum helped me make my bat wings at home an my mask at school.

Something new I learned was: what bats and some of the creatures looked like.

You thought hard about bats and their wings and with support came up with some designs to use in the making part. What a great job of the making, using your plan, you did even though you had a broken collar bone. It was great to see you sharing your learning with your mum, thanks mum!

My body

We 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

Reflection

My favourite part was: having lots of days doing it and working with my buddy so it looks good.

It was really hard when: that I had to keep telling my buddy what to do.

Something that really helped me was: that my buddy got to help me and I didn't have to do it by myself

Something new I learned was: learning the Maori words for parts of our body and learning the song.

What a fantastic clear poster you and your buddy have made. You have at least 6 body parts carefully labelled in Te Reo and English. You could use this poster to teach others!
You helped your buddy by showing leadership when creating this poster to make sure it got finished and your buddy helped you with the spelling and teaching about pic collage. It is great that you could learn with and from each other.
