African Game 4: Mokou

African Game 4: Mokou

About This Primary Resource

This game is very popular in Lesotho and in deprived areas of Africa because it doesn’t need any sports equipment to play it. All you need is a ball (or a plastic bag ball) and a selection of rocks. The aim of the game is to build up your pile of rocks higher than the other teams without being hit by the ball. Once all your players have been hit it is the end of the game, and the team without the highest pile of rocks wins.

This resource has been kindly shared with us by Lessons from Africa, which is the education programme run by the charity Send a Cow. For 25 years Send a Cow have been helping thousands of African families and orphans grow enough food to eat, sell their produce and develop small businesses that last.

If you would like to find out more about Send a Cow, or make a donation to the charity, then please have a look at their website: www.sendacow.org.uk. Lessons from Africa also offer hundreds more resources suitable for Key Stage 2-4, find them all at their website: www.sendacow.org.uk/lessonsfromafrica.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.
