In PE, not only did we work on dribbling, passing and shooting skills for this term’s basketball activities, we also had a go at playing the Maya game of pok a tok.
This frenetic game involves two teams moving a ball between players, without ever using hands or feet! Cue knees, elbows, heads (and virtually everything in between) being used to bounce the pok a tok ball from A to B.
We had great fun. It’s just a mystery how any Maya could have shot the ball through a stone hoop which was around 7 metres high!
