Set of words, objectives, translations, and details to deliver the Haka in about 5 hours. I've not included the free drawn images of the different poses described on the sheets that I use in delivering this. Taught to me by a maori and although different actions can be added I have found that th More…is works great and is perfect for small group teaching. They are an invaluable set of lessons for evaluating and improving performance. It is a wow lesson for observation and OFSTED. Great for boys but girls love it too as it provides a different dance challenge for them.

Thank you this is really helpful and will be great for our Y6 class. I know this is cheeky, but is there any way you can scan or take photos and email your images of the different poses? That would be amazing, but no worries if you can't. Thanks
