Year 6 - The Haka

Date: 15th Nov 2023 @ 8:50pm

Today we began our dance unit - The Haka. We watched different performances of the Haka and discussed the history behind it. We learned that The Haka is a ceremonial Māori war dance or challenge. Haka are usually performed in a group and represent a display of a tribe's pride, strength and unity. We performed the first 15 seconds of the dance in unison and made sure that we could all follow the movements in time and synchronised. Over the weeks we will add parts to the dance until we have learnt the entire routine.
