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

We made a castle with a tall tower... what a team!
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. 
Great listening and sharing!
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 and painting my headband.

It was really hard when: painting my headband so that it was painted all over.

Something that really helped me was: having a plan because I could use it to help me make my wearable art.

Something new I learned was: you can't buy a wearable art in a shop, you have to make it.

You had a clear vision of what you wanted to create right from the start. You drew a detailed plan and knew what materials you needed to bring from home. You did your best to follow you plan, working hard by youself and with a little adult support at times to create your garment. Enjoy the show Charlotte, take the time to slow down on stage and show everybody your glowworm.

My body 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

My favourite part was: using the poster to spell the words correctly

It was really hard when: I had to spell the Maori words correctly.

Something that really helped me was: the Māori body parts poster because it helped me learn the words and spell them correctly. And my buddy helped me too.

Something new I learned was: the Maori head, shoulders, knees and toes song.

What a fabulous poster you created. You have used the success criteria to make sure you have at least 6 words and both the Māori and English words. Remember to keep on using what you know so you can learn more and more words that make sense in Te Reo.
