Secret weapon: The H/Yakka
January 31, 2013

theyakkaD: We learnt the [H/]Yakka in P. E. today! It goes like this:
[Pats knees, then chest then puts arms in the air whilst chanting]
Cormati, cormati, bu – Orr!
And you have to do it so loud that you’ll scare your audience – and then you’re finished the [H/]Yakka and that’s all you have to do.
I don’t know why you have to get changed if it’s just that long.
Me: Wow. Is that about rugby?
D: No, everyone has to remember the [H/]Yakka – it’s for every single game – even basketball – it’s to scare the audience!

Coloured Rings – October 2012

D: It’s what we play in P.E. – it’s called Coloured Rings, and you have to get into a coloured ring when you’re told to, and then the teacher takes them away and you have to find another one to get in.

Fish reincarnated

D: There’s a game we go and play at lunchtimes sometimes – It’s like Fishy Fishy, but there’s an octopus and if you get tagged by it, you turn into seaweed and you float around and wave your arms like this..!

If someone touches you then they turn into seaweed. If the last person touches you or the octopus, they have to turn into one – and the winner is…. Mr Grice – he’s our PE teacher.

And there’s a song that goes with it: “Fishy fishy, swim in the sea, and get turned into seaweed with your eaten body, and get your bones turned onto the ground, seaweed, seaweed, see-, see-, see-, seaweed.”

Posh man running

D: Do you know how to do Posh Man Running?
Me: No.
D: We learnt it in P.E. – it’s like this: You have a moustache [holds forefinger across his top lip], have a hat [pretends to put a tall hat on with both hands], have your arms like this [positions arms and hands like he’s about to do a train impression]. Then run!
