Waaaaah!

0:00:450:00:47

Grandma. Grandma.

0:00:490:00:52

This week we can go to the museum to see the baccia...

0:00:520:00:56

the bacciasaurus.

0:00:560:00:58

-You mean the Brachiosaurus dinosaur.

-Yes.

0:00:580:01:02

Or, or we could go see the football with Dad.

0:01:020:01:05

I'm afraid it's early nights for you this weekend.

0:01:050:01:08

-Why?

-You're back at school next week.

0:01:080:01:11

-Already?

-I'm afraid so.

0:01:110:01:14

-Oh!

-But you like school.

0:01:140:01:17

Yeah. And I'll see Charlie, Marshall and Ying.

0:01:170:01:21

Um, I'm not sure about that.

0:01:210:01:23

-What?

-We're in a new house now.

0:01:230:01:26

I don't think you'll be seeing your old friends for a while.

0:01:260:01:30

But you will be meeting some lovely new kids.

0:01:300:01:33

What do you think, T-Rex?

0:01:330:01:35

It'll be fun?

0:01:370:01:38

-OK.

-Good.

0:01:390:01:41

We've got to head out and see Kobi about this washing machine.

0:01:410:01:46

Come on.

0:01:460:01:47

Pass it to me!

0:01:500:01:51

PHONE RINGS

0:01:530:01:55

'Who is it?'

0:01:550:01:57

-It's Mali!

-And his gran!

0:01:580:02:00

'Could you let them in please, girls?'

0:02:000:02:03

-Hi!

-Hello!

-'I'll be out in just a moment.'

-Hi!

0:02:030:02:06

Hello, girls.

0:02:070:02:09

BOTH: Hi.

0:02:090:02:11

Guys, guess what? I'm starting a new school next week.

0:02:110:02:14

No way.

0:02:140:02:16

-Exciting.

-Next week?

0:02:160:02:19

-Uh-huh.

-What school do you go to, Sam?

0:02:190:02:22

The excellent, the coolest, Apple Tree Primary School.

0:02:220:02:25

-That's your school too.

-We'll all be in the same school.

0:02:250:02:29

ALL: Ahh!

0:02:290:02:32

Told you, exciting, exciting.

0:02:320:02:35

It'll be so much fun.

0:02:350:02:37

Phew, that's a relief.

0:02:370:02:38

Mali was a little worried.

0:02:380:02:41

Tell me what you like about your school.

0:02:410:02:44

Apple Tree Primary School is the best school ever and it's not far

0:02:440:02:48

from where we live.

0:02:480:02:50

It's amazing.

0:02:500:02:52

On the way to school, the lovely lollipop lady helps out at the

0:02:540:02:58

zebra crossing.

0:02:580:03:00

Just so we get to the big school gate.

0:03:000:03:03

Ta-da!

0:03:030:03:05

BELL RINGS

0:03:050:03:06

In my classroom, everyone is friendly, especially the class pet,

0:03:060:03:11

Nibbles the hamster.

0:03:110:03:12

He's called Nibbles because he nibbles everything.

0:03:140:03:18

Our school is perfect.

0:03:180:03:20

Well, apart from maybe...

0:03:200:03:23

school dinners.

0:03:230:03:25

They always serve spaghetti Bolognese

0:03:260:03:29

and everyone knows I hate spaghetti Bolognese.

0:03:290:03:32

It's all a little bit too tangly!

0:03:320:03:36

Oh, and there's just one more thing.

0:03:380:03:40

We get to wear school uniform.

0:03:400:03:42

-You wear uniforms?

-Yeah, I know, how cool.

0:03:420:03:46

They wear uniforms at their new school.

0:03:460:03:49

Uniforms are just another form of clothes, Mali, try not to worry.

0:03:490:03:53

'Right, that's the shower fixed.'

0:03:530:03:55

Sorry to keep you waiting.

0:03:550:03:58

I hope you weren't in a rush.

0:03:580:04:00

No, I've come to remind you to have a look at our washing machine.

0:04:000:04:04

Oh, sure. But apart from that rumbling, grumbling

0:04:040:04:08

old washing machine, how are you guys settling in? Young man?

0:04:080:04:12

-It's OK.

-Nadeem is putting away all the removal boxes at last.

0:04:120:04:17

Anyway, we've got to fly, I need to get on with Mali's dinner.

0:04:180:04:22

-Bye, see you later.

-Bye.

0:04:220:04:25

Come on, in you go.

0:04:310:04:33

Nadeem, I thought you were putting these boxes away.

0:04:380:04:42

'Has anyone seen my boots?'

0:04:430:04:45

Dad.

0:04:450:04:46

That man.

0:04:460:04:47

A new job? Yeah, I'm really excited.

0:04:570:05:00

Starting next week, yep.

0:05:010:05:03

First thing.

0:05:030:05:05

With the elephants?

0:05:050:05:07

Oh, OK, that's great.

0:05:070:05:09

I really need to find my work boots.

0:05:120:05:15

Mali, guess what came through the post today?

0:05:150:05:19

We could even dress up as pirates while we read it.

0:05:220:05:25

How about we start building that new robot.

0:05:270:05:31

-You've been wanting to do it for ages.

-No, thank you.

0:05:310:05:34

-CLATTER

-Aaaargh!

0:05:340:05:36

Or how about superhero Mali helps me find what your dad is looking for?

0:05:360:05:43

No, thank you.

0:05:430:05:45

Shock, horror.

0:05:450:05:46

Mali, you have never turned down the chance of being a superhero.

0:05:460:05:51

-What's wrong?

-School uniforms.

0:05:510:05:54

I don't believe it.

0:05:540:05:56

I've never worn school uniform in my life.

0:05:560:05:59

I think once you've tried it on, you'll love it!

0:05:590:06:02

But this school uniform doesn't sound very good for me.

0:06:050:06:10

Like lady lollipops and zebras on the road.

0:06:100:06:14

I'm not sure I'd like zebras crossing the road with me.

0:06:140:06:19

The school sounds scary.

0:06:190:06:20

They have strange things like pets that nibble all your books, so you

0:06:220:06:26

can't ever read.

0:06:260:06:28

And you can't even eat because you got all tangled in

0:06:290:06:33

spaghetti Bolognese.

0:06:330:06:35

And what if the uniform doesn't fit me?

0:06:350:06:38

LAUGHTER

0:06:380:06:41

I just want to go back to my old school.

0:06:410:06:44

Mali, you'll look so smart and grown-up,

0:06:440:06:49

and you'll never know until you give it a shot.

0:06:490:06:52

Next week is your first day at your new school and do you

0:06:520:06:56

know who else has their first day next week?

0:06:560:06:59

-Ohhhh!

-CLATTER

0:06:590:07:03

-Dad?

-Yes.

0:07:030:07:05

It's his first day at his new job at the zoo.

0:07:050:07:09

And guess what? By the strange way he's acting,

0:07:090:07:12

something tells me he's also very nervous about his first day,

0:07:120:07:16

just like you.

0:07:160:07:18

-Mm.

-Sometimes what grown-ups have to go through

0:07:180:07:22

is not so different from you kids.

0:07:220:07:25

-MALI LAUGHS

-What?

0:07:250:07:28

-Nadeem, what on Earth?

-It's all so stressful.

0:07:280:07:31

I'm starting at the zoo but I can't find my work boots.

0:07:310:07:34

And I'm not sure of the fastest way to get there.

0:07:340:07:37

Is it the bus 52 or the bus 43?

0:07:390:07:42

You know I can't be late on my first day.

0:07:430:07:45

Will the people at work like me?

0:07:470:07:50

Especially my boss.

0:07:500:07:52

And most important, will the animals like me?

0:07:520:07:55

It's really important that you get along with the animals.

0:07:560:08:00

Especially the elephants.

0:08:000:08:03

ELEPHANTS TRUMPET

0:08:050:08:06

Be honest, guys, do you think these things fit me?

0:08:060:08:10

LAUGHTER

0:08:100:08:12

BELL RINGS

0:08:120:08:14

It's Kobi.

0:08:140:08:15

Oh, hello, Kobi.

0:08:150:08:17

-Come in.

-Hi, everybody.

0:08:170:08:19

I've come to fix the washing machine with a bad case of indigestion.

0:08:190:08:23

Hey, Mali.

0:08:230:08:25

Hey, you look as if you've got something on your mind.

0:08:260:08:30

It's his first day at Apple Tree School next week and he is feeling

0:08:300:08:34

very nervous. The funny thing is,

0:08:340:08:36

it's also Nadeem's first day at the zoo and he's also feeling nervous.

0:08:360:08:41

I've got two very nervous boys on my hands, Kobi, what shall I do?

0:08:410:08:45

Ah!

0:08:450:08:47

Well, a new day at school is a new adventure.

0:08:470:08:51

A new adventure?

0:08:510:08:53

Yes. Reminds me of an old African proverb -

0:08:530:08:56

one cannot stop sleeping because of the fear of bad dreams.

0:08:560:09:00

Courage is the father of success.

0:09:000:09:03

I can see you've got an emergency going on here but I think, maybe,

0:09:050:09:09

we can leave the washing machine until later.

0:09:090:09:12

Mali, follow me.

0:09:120:09:14

Fear of a new adventure?

0:09:250:09:26

I've seen this loads of times.

0:09:280:09:30

So I think I've got an idea that can help you feel better.

0:09:300:09:35

See, told you Bella's mum could help.

0:09:350:09:38

-Really?

-Absolutely.

0:09:380:09:40

You see, I work at your new school.

0:09:400:09:43

And every term I see lots of kids

0:09:430:09:45

that feel exactly the way you do now.

0:09:450:09:47

So, if there's something you're not very good at,

0:09:470:09:50

what's the best way to master that very thing?

0:09:500:09:54

Practise.

0:09:560:09:57

Exactly. Practise and that's what we'll do.

0:09:570:10:01

-A practice run for school.

-That sounds less scary.

0:10:010:10:04

Good. First we'll practise the school run, to make sure it's fun

0:10:040:10:08

and not scary. Then we'll check out the school, to make sure

0:10:080:10:11

there's no creepy monsters lying in wait.

0:10:110:10:14

-Can you show me the playground?

-Definitely.

-That's the spirit.

# Life is for the taking

# It will be all right. #

0:11:380:11:40

Actually, it looks nice.

0:11:400:11:42

Good.

0:11:420:11:44

But I still don't know how to make new friends.

0:11:440:11:47

Ah, to make new friends, you have to be friendly.

0:11:470:11:51

Remember, big heart, big smile.

0:11:510:11:54

HE SIGHS

0:11:540:11:56

Mali, remember when you first arrived at Apple Tree House,

0:11:560:12:00

did you know me or Bella?

0:12:000:12:02

-No.

-Remember what you said when you first met Bella?

0:12:020:12:07

Mm. Yes. "Hello,

0:12:070:12:09

"I'm Mali and I've just moved in, and I'm looking for some mangoes."

0:12:090:12:13

LAUGHTER

0:12:130:12:15

That's true. Your first day at school won't be any different to

0:12:150:12:19

your first day at Apple Tree House.

0:12:190:12:21

-How do I look in this?

-Great.

-Really good, Dad.

0:12:210:12:24

-Thanks.

-What about your feet?

0:12:240:12:27

-Oh, no. My work boots.

-Er, Nadeem, don't you remember?

0:12:270:12:31

They had holes in them, so we had to chuck them out before the move.

0:12:310:12:35

-Oh, no!

-But...

0:12:350:12:37

-Ta-da!

-Oh!

0:12:390:12:41

We got you some new boots.

0:12:410:12:43

LAUGHTER

0:12:430:12:44

Thank you. Did you know about this?

0:12:440:12:47

And before I knew it, I was off to school in my new uniform.

0:12:490:12:53

At lunchtime, I thought I'd be brave

0:12:530:12:56

and go out and make some new friends.

0:12:560:12:58

Luckily, Emily from my class spotted me and came over.

0:13:000:13:05

She asked me if I'd like to join in their game of football.

0:13:050:13:09

I said - "Yes, that would be great".

0:13:100:13:13

I got to make loads of new friends playing a game I love.

0:13:130:13:17

-And guess what?

-You scored the winning goal?

0:13:170:13:22

Yes!

0:13:220:13:23

And that was one of the best parts of my day at school.

0:13:250:13:28

It all turned out well after all.

0:13:280:13:31

LAUGHTER

0:13:310:13:32

You're a good friend, Mali.

0:13:320:13:35

And you're great friend, Sam.

0:13:350:13:37

As Mali gets used to living in a new home, he starts to worry about starting at a new school. Mali is not the only one worrying - his dad Nadeem is about to start his new job at the zoo and he seems to have similar fears to Mali. Luckily, there are lots of friends on hand to help them both through their first-day nerves.
