Charlie over the Water

Category: SCHOOLROOM GAMES for Primary Pupils





This is an old game and is always popular. The children form a ring,
joining hands. One is selected to be "It" and takes his place in the
center. Those in the ring then dance around, singing,

"Charlie, over the water,
Charlie, over the sea,
Charlie, catch a blackbird,
But can't catch me."

Having completed these lines, they all assume a stooping position
before "Charlie," who is "It," can tag them. If he succeeds in tagging
one, that one takes his place in the circle and the game continues.
