Winter Learning Journey Day 6 Bonus Activity

1. Rugby World Cup 2011- All Blacks vs France
2.World Cup 2015 – All Blacks vs Argentina
3.All Blacks vs South Africa 2016

Bonus Activity: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
At the end of your day at Te Papa, you head to your hotel in the centre of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.

  1. Hi Jerome, Aren't the hakas amazing?! They make the hair stand up on the back of my neck when I watch them! I think that I'd be very concerned about playing against a team that can perform such a challenge before the game even begins! Can you perform a haka?
    I'm writing to you from Canada where hakas are not part of our cultural tradition. However, my little 7 year old grandson, who lives in Auckland like you, can do a very convincing job of one. It's very cool!

    I hope you're enjoying the blogging program!!
