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 helping 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.




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 art because it was fun and I was kind of excited about it.

It was really hard when: I didn't really follow my plan because I know what to do next.

Something that really helped me was: Kerri and Deb really helped me to do my tinfoil.

Something new I learned was: Following my plan was very hard because I didn't really have a plan.

I know that art is something you really love and you found the this very difficult. You knew the creature you wanted to be and did some close looking. It was really tricky to create a design to show your idea of a glowworm. I think you had to make changes to your plan to be able to create a garment that was going to work. 
You have ended up creating a beautiful piece that you should be very proud of.

Buddy Time Te Reo

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: learning the new words for the body parts in Te Reo

It was really hard when: working with my buddy because sometimes he didn't really let me make the poster.

Something that really helped me was: my buddy helped with the spelling of the māori words.

Something new I learned was: some other body parts like hair and body parts.

What a cool poster Atta. You and your buddy have looked at the success criteria to create a clear poster with at least 6 body parts lablled in English and Te Reo. Thank you for sharing your Te Reo with us to help us learn the 'head and shoulders song'.
