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 is the tallest, but we didn't finish in time.
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. 
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 wearable art to look like the glow worm and putting glow paint on my top.

It was really hard when: I had to keep putting more tinfoil on because it kept falling off.

Something that really helped me was: my plan because it helped me remember all of my ideas.

Something new I learned was: making a wearable art because I haven't made a wearable art before and it's not a costume.

We spent a lot of time thinking and planning before we started making and this helped you to gather your ideas and create your plan. However, when you start making it can be tricky to stick to your plan. Part of the learning in technology is that you need to change and grow your ideas. Perhaps next time you lead your learning a bit more, taking charge of what to bring and using the making times well, concentrating on your completing garment in time.

Body parts in 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: when you had to say the words because it was helpful in my learning 

It was really hard when: remembering the words in the Reo māori 

Something that really helped me was: practising lots with my buddy and with my class.

Something new I learned was: how to say the word properly

You have created a cool poster with loads of body parts labelled (many more than 6). Remember to follow the succes criteria when you are working on a task, this means that you get the best from your learning.
I am pleased that practising has helped you in your learning. Did singing the song hlpe too? I know it helped me.
