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. 
     
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

You had a bit of a think and decided to create a bat as your wearable art. You couls share some of you ideas and together we started a plan. However you did not complete your plan or use it in the creation of your garment. Design is an important part of the technology process and your next learning step is to think really hard about what you want to create and how you are going to go about it.

The 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: making the poster because my buddy helped me.

It was really hard when: when we had to write the māori words because we kept forgetting how to spell them.

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

Something new I learned was: waewae means legs.

You and your buddy have created a clear poster to show the body parts in Te Reo. It is tricky to correctly spell the māori words and you guys used the Te Tinana poster to help. With support you can join in parts of the 'head and shoulders' song. Keep on practising and you'll soon learn it.
