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 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!










Great listening and sharing!








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 wings because I liked that my Mum and Dad made it fit like a backpack.

It was really hard when: I had to get all the pieces on at the Regent.

Something that really helped me was: having my ideas in my brain and then using my ideas to make my plan. 

Something new I learned was: having a plan helps you because then we can create what we want and not forget anything that you need.

Wow Carter, what a cool time you have had sharing your learning with you family! You started with a bit of a plan and then you made loads of changes untill you got it right. That is what design is all about. After a few more changes you created a garment that will last. 
Remember next time to add some more details to your design. This will help you know what to bring and how to do the making part of technology.

Learning 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: using the body parts poster and using the words so we could spell them correctly.

It was really hard when: my buddy didn't send it to me and I had to do it all by myself.

Something that really helped me was: Te Tinana poster and having some quiet time to work.

Something new I learned was: writing māori words and that if I get on with it I can do anything.

What a lot of learning Carter!You created this fabulous poster without your buddy. I can see you have  used the success criteria and the body parts posters we had to help make a clearly labelled poster. Throughout this learning you have shown great leadership. It is fantastic to see share your Kapa Haka and Te Reo learning
