Year 6 – The Rugby All Blacks Haka

After following the Rugby World Cup, and being inspired by the success of the England squad this year, Year 6 created dances based on the All Blacks Haka.

We watched a clip of The All Blacks (New Zealand team) performing the Haka to the England squad before their game began. We identified some of the key actions and gestures used by the players, and discussed the kind of atmosphere that the dance aims to create.

Children were looking to produce a Haka piece that was fierce and intimidating, demonstrating team pride, strength and unity. They also needed to consider their formation, ensuring they looked organised and appeared as a solid tribe. Year 6 noticed that the Haka often involved actions such as stomping, rhythmic body slapping and hand quivering.

Year 6 have done a brilliant job so far, combining traditional Haka movements with some of their own ideas.

Take a look at some of the photos and video of our learning below…
