1. Miming the songs in assembly instead of actually singing because you lived the thug life and cared for nobody.

2. Absolutely whacking the person you hated on the head during a heated game of Duck Duck Goose.

3. Using your pencil case to cover your answers in your spelling test because all of your classmates were cheating six year old bastards.

4. Sitting on the benches in assembly in Year 6, looking down at all the younger pupils, and thinking 'started from Reception now we're here'.

5. Singing "He's got the whole world in his PANTS" in assembly because you were a comical genius who couldn't be controlled.

6. Being sent to 'the wall' at playtime and having to watch all of your friends play whilst you stood and lost all of your dignity.

7. Unsticking yourself when nobody was looking whilst playing Stuck In The Mud because you were too sassy and lived life in the fast lane.

8. Spending the whole of your primary school life trying to get your gooey alien pregnant

9. Watching Art Attack after school and thinking that anything was possible as long as you had some PVA glue.

10. Being chosen to be 'the murderer' in a tense game of Wink Murder and feeling like a mastermind criminal with no limits to your power.

11. Rolling down your big school socks into doughnuts around your ankles because you were the ultimate trendsetter who followed nobody's rules.

12. Getting chosen to give out the whiteboards and giving the person that you hated the dirtiest one with a pen that didn't work.

13. "I'll be the mum, you can be the dad" What can I be? "You're the dog"

14. When the teacher asked you to get into a space in PE and you swung your arms around, hitting as many kids as possible, to show your space.

15. Accidentally singing an extra 'of kings' at the end of 'Sing Hosanna' and feeling like you'd let your family, school and country down.

16. Being asked to take a note to another teacher and feeling like you had just been honoured with the task of taking the ring to Mordor.

17. Spreading glue all over your hands, waiting for it to dry, and peeling it off because you were a reckless six year old.

18. Holding your palm over someone's head without them realising was a foolproof way of counting how many boyfriends/girlfriends they had.

19. Renaming 'Bulldog' after it got banned because you were a gang of no-nonsense nine year olds and nobody could stand in your way.

20. Not clapping your hands during 'if you're happy and you know it' because you were a miserable bastard who couldn't be controlled.

21. Listening to the teacher tell you the story about the kid who swung too far back on his chair and died.

22. Coming back to school after being on holiday with a hair braid and feeling way too bootylicious for the untraveled pupils in your class.

23. Wearing a gym cone as a hat when the teacher wasn't looking in PE and thinking that you were absolutely hilarious.

24. "Miss, I've broken my arm!" Just put a wet paper towel on it

25. Wearing your Total 90s to school and feeling like you'd be getting called up to represent England any day soon.

26. Being at the front of the line to walk to assembly and feeling like royalty leading your peasant subjects to war.

27. Absolutely shitting yourself with excitement if the coach drove past your house when you were going on a school trip.

28. You'd never felt pain until you got whipped with a skipping rope when running too close to an oblivious skipper.

29. Paper clipping lined paper underneath white paper to neatly write on so your piece of work looked fresh as f**k on the wall

30. Inviting your friend round for tea after school in order to show off your inflatable furniture.

Bleurgh they look horrible. I am too old I think because I never saw one of those.

Mandy2003 Wed 30-Jul-14 12:39:42

Everyone who's been asking about the gooey aliens, I think its these We used to sell them where I worked about 10 years ago but they didn't have babies in those days!

Olbas Wed 30-Jul-14 09:41:52

Did you try and guess the age of the child who did the art work...then declare "oh that's rubbish"grin

Feeling honoured that you were chosen to take the duty teacher's mug back to the staff room at playtime.
Standing outside the staff room for hours until a teacher saw you because you weren't allowed to knock to return the cup!

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jul-14 08:40:33

YY MrsM i watched Vision On. With the gallery where they refused to return any of the art. grin

MrsMikeDelfino Wed 30-Jul-14 00:57:20

Watching Art Attack. Nope, I watched Morph and Tony Hart (the predecessor to Art Attack!) Now totally gutted as I just googled and found out Tony Hart died a few years ago. sad

What the f****s a gooey alien?! confused

Whiteboard? BLACKBOARD! White chalk and a board that was black in colour.

Used to sing "Hosanna" and loved that song. grin

GobbyHollins Tue 29-Jul-14 22:25:18

I had that pencil case sparkling grin

I used to love the bander printing thing that you wound to print. I'd help my mum with PTA letters just to wind it.

SueESidle Tue 29-Jul-14 20:43:41

OP are you me?

SuffolkNWhat Tue 29-Jul-14 20:07:15

Falling off your mates Lilo Ball and instead of putting hands out to break your fall, just smash your face into the playground thus getting the things banned from your school and looking like you'd done several rounds with Mike Tyson for about 2 months afterwards.

Just me then?

Cliff Richard. Every. Fricking. Morning.

Being chosen to lower the needle on the record player so all the school could slowly troop into the hall to the sounds of cliff Richard.

Just me?

<gets me coat>

Drawing with your finger on your friends back, they had to guess the letter. There was always one me who pretended they couldn't guess it just to get a mini back massage.
Or there was a whole row of girls doing it each otheres back and there being a mass pushing session to be the one in front.

And the shame if you forgot to wear your vest on pe day. That's for everyone old enough to remember doing it in your vest and pants.

No.15 made me laugh grin it was usually the nursery children that did it in ours in their high pitched voices grin
All so true.
Did anyone put a flattened can on the back tyre of their bike to make a 'motorbike'? Can't tame my wild antics.

Lagoonablue Tue 29-Jul-14 19:51:35

I would be on to Ofsted!

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jul-14 19:49:44

Lagoon can you imagine if your own child told you they were doing that at school now? shock

Lagoonablue Tue 29-Jul-14 19:48:53

When in reality....

Lagoonablue Tue 29-Jul-14 19:48:20

I was tea monitor for a term in juniors FFS! Meant leaving lessons just before break to out the kettle on in the staff room and clear the cups after and wash them. WTAF was that about? Clever teachers sold it as a privelege when I. Reality it was slave labour and a health and safety risk!

Sparklingbrook Tue 29-Jul-14 19:45:24

I was also a Librarian but can't remember what that entailed. In between the office work and running the bank and the library I am surprised I got any work done.

PioneersAndPirateShips Tue 29-Jul-14 19:39:52

Oh yes zoombinis! I loved that! And being asked to take the register/do office duty (Which is basically the child equivalent of jury service!)

Letthemtalk Tue 29-Jul-14 19:18:23

Knowing that paper fasteners were mythical stationery items that only rich people had ever seen, found in the same aisle as double sided sticky tape.

MonkeyDLuffy Tue 29-Jul-14 19:09:52

I can remember worrying about my latch key tamagotchi after the school ban hammered them.

Don't forget shouting the last bit of Cauliflowers Fluffy:
"And the broad beans are sleeping in their blankety bed, YEAH!!!"

ScarlettlovesRhett Tue 29-Jul-14 17:02:57

Fountain pens!!!

Only to be used at primary when awarded 'scribe' status, and the Only Pen Allowed at my first secondary (biros were banned as they were 'common' - big trouble if you used one)

(I went to an all girl's grammar first, then we moved and I changed to a comp which was much less wanky about pens!)
