# African Drums Workshop

I’ve just been down to the small hall, where a selection of children from Bearwood are having an African Drums Workshop – They had picked it up really quickly and it sounded amazing! I’m going to go back down shortly to see how they’re getting on!

# The Haka!

In P.E 6H have been creating our own Haka’s. We have been practising for four weeks.

We needed to include: Agressive body posture, strong body movements, angry facial expressions and using the tongue muscle. We also needed to work in unison and include a canon (which is a bit like a mexican wave) and taunts.

We had to make sure we bent our arms and legs but the most important thing was definitely rhythm.

# Purple Mash

Hi Guys –

How are you getting on with Purple Mash?

# Balancing in P.E in Year 6

This term we have been looking at balancing sequences in P.E and we have been looking at the Haka. Watch this space!
We have been working in pairs to create our own balance sequences. Each team had to create 3 diffrent balance positions as seen in the video clip.
