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: doing the making because we have never done it before. I like using different materials like the feathers and painting.

It was really hard when: trying to make the feathers stick to my kakapo wings. I think it because there is still some material stuck to the tape.

Something that really helped me was: doing our plan and design at the start because it helped me to get my ideas so I knew what to do. Choosing the animal so I knew what I was.

Something new I learned was: wearable art is art that you can wear, it something that is made by hand and it's very hard to make.

Wow Jamie! 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.

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: making the pic collage because I liked working with my buddy, not just myself.

It was really hard: to spell the words in māori.

Something that really helped me was: my buddy and the poster with all the body parts.

Something new I learned was: The body parts song in māori (upoku pakihiwi puku hope waewae)

You and your buddy have worked hard to create a fantastic clear poster labelling the body parts in Te Reo. It is really tricky to spell the words correctly as some of the letters make different sounds in Māori. I am pleased the poster and working with your helped! Practising and singing songs is a great way to learn, sometimes the tune gets stuck in your head!
