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!
Working together to share ideas.
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: showing off my garment at the reagent because I my family could the details and hard work I put into my work.

It was really hard when: finding the materials I needed like the bubble wrap and the fabric.

Something that really helped me was: the parents coming in to help especially my mum.

Something new I learned was: that wearable arts are something you cannot buy because it is art and you can use all sorts of stuff like bubble wrap, fabric and feathers.
Reflection
What a fantastic Kakapo Caleb. I can see you and mum had a great time working together to creat those fabulous wings. You are a great learner and you listened to the ideas of others and then added your ideas to create an amazing piece of wearable art.
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 can add some more details to your plan so you know what to bring and how you are going to go about your making.

Reflection

My favourite part was: learning the song because I learnt more māori 

It was really hard when: I had to remember the Te Reo 

Something that really helped me was: lots of practise and mking the poster and singing the song.

Something new I learned was: lots more Te Reo, like eyes are whatu.

What a fantastic poster Caleb. You and your buddy have worked hard to create a clear, well labelled poster. I love that you are happy to act as a leader and help us as we learn the body parts song. I can tell you are loving kappa haka and bring that learning and confidence into the classroom.
