Hello there.

0:01:020:01:03

Look, they're here.

0:01:030:01:05

Come in and we'll get started.

0:01:050:01:07

ALL: Hello!

0:01:070:01:09

-Welcome to the Green Balloon Club.

-And happy new year.

0:01:090:01:13

ALL: Happy new year!

0:01:130:01:16

So here we are, all together again for a new Green Balloon Club year.

0:01:160:01:20

Where's Jay?

0:01:200:01:22

He's at home with the flu.

0:01:220:01:24

ALL: Aaaaah.

0:01:240:01:27

Poor Jay.

0:01:270:01:28

Get well soon, Jay.

0:01:280:01:30

ALL: We miss you!

0:01:300:01:32

Shall we make some new year wishes?

0:01:320:01:34

-That's a good idea.

-My wish is that Jay will get well soon.

0:01:340:01:38

My wish is that I can do the register.

0:01:380:01:42

-Then let's make your wish come true.

-Here you go, Lily-Rose.

-Thanks!

0:01:420:01:47

Right. First it's me.

0:01:490:01:52

I'm here.

0:01:520:01:53

My wish is that my seeds would grow because they haven't grown yet.

0:01:530:01:57

THEY LAUGH

0:01:570:02:00

How about you, Ant?

0:02:000:02:02

I'm here.

0:02:020:02:03

I wish everyone looked after the wildlife where they live.

0:02:030:02:07

That's a big wish, Ant, but very good.

0:02:070:02:10

Now it's Cat.

0:02:100:02:12

I'm here. I wish to go on more nature adventures

0:02:120:02:15

and meet exciting animals.

0:02:150:02:17

Ooh! I wish that, too.

0:02:170:02:20

Right, Cat's here. Now it's you, Skipper.

0:02:200:02:23

She wishes that she'll get to meet a rabbit.

0:02:230:02:27

That's a good one.

0:02:270:02:29

Jay's not here.

0:02:290:02:30

Now it's you, Sky.

0:02:300:02:32

I'm here and I wish that we have lots of fun this year.

0:02:320:02:36

That's a really good one.

0:02:360:02:39

Now it's you. Shall we all wish for fun?

0:02:390:02:42

ALL: Yes! We all wish for lots of fun!

0:02:420:02:46

Everyone present and correct.

0:02:460:02:48

Let's do the Green Balloon Club chant!

0:02:480:02:51

ALL: Yay!

0:02:510:02:52

ALL: We love animals, plants and birds

0:02:570:03:00

We love snails and slugs

0:03:000:03:03

Large and small, we love them all And we never, ever step on bugs

0:03:030:03:08

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:03:080:03:11

Hey! There's a report coming in.

0:03:110:03:13

It's our first report of the year, who is it, Ant?

0:03:130:03:17

Rory, Oscar and Alice.

0:03:170:03:18

Helloooo!

0:03:180:03:21

Helloooo!

0:03:210:03:23

Hello! We're wrapping up warm to go outside

0:03:240:03:27

and see some special weather.

0:03:270:03:30

Let's go outside and see.

0:03:300:03:33

It's snowing!

0:03:380:03:41

It only snows when the temperature is below freezing

0:03:470:03:52

which is really, really cold.

0:03:520:03:55

Water droplets in the clouds freeze into icy snow crystals.

0:03:550:04:02

The snow is really cold.

0:04:020:04:05

That's snow!

0:04:050:04:07

It's really fun playing with your friends and family in the snow too.

0:04:070:04:14

It's a snowball.

0:04:170:04:19

Snow's on my gloves.

0:04:200:04:21

Snow's on my feet.

0:04:210:04:23

I love the snow.

0:04:230:04:25

Look at the snow on that leaf.

0:04:280:04:31

The snow falls onto the garden and makes everything pretty and white.

0:04:310:04:37

Those birdies must be really cold.

0:04:370:04:41

The chickens will need looking after in this cold snow.

0:04:410:04:45

I found two eggs in the chicken hut.

0:04:490:04:54

Even the egg's got snow on it.

0:04:540:04:59

We like catching the snowflakes in our mouths.

0:05:010:05:05

Listen to it crunching under our feet.

0:05:050:05:09

You can really see our footprints.

0:05:090:05:12

There are so many fun things you can do in the snow.

0:05:120:05:17

A snowman!

0:05:180:05:20

A head.

0:05:200:05:22

Coal, for his nose.

0:05:230:05:25

I found two eyes.

0:05:260:05:29

I found a perfect twig for the smile.

0:05:290:05:34

He needs a hat.

0:05:360:05:38

Look at our cool snowman!

0:05:410:05:43

We hope it snows where you live so you can have as much fun as us.

0:05:450:05:51

Byeeeeeee!

0:05:510:05:54

Byeeeeeeee!

0:05:540:05:58

# Oh, the weather outside is frightful

0:06:040:06:08

# But the fire is so delightful

0:06:080:06:11

# Since we've no place to go

0:06:110:06:14

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:06:140:06:17

# It doesn't show signs of stopping

0:06:170:06:20

# And I brought some corn for popping

0:06:200:06:24

# Lights are turned down low

0:06:240:06:27

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:06:270:06:31

# When we finally kiss goodnight

0:06:310:06:35

# How I'll hate going out in the storm

0:06:350:06:37

# But if you'll really hold me tight

0:06:370:06:40

# All the way home I'll be warm

0:06:420:06:44

# The fire is slowly dying

0:06:450:06:47

# And, my dear, we're still good-byeing

0:06:470:06:51

# As long as you love me so

0:06:510:06:54

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:06:540:06:57

# The weather outside is frightful

0:07:030:07:05

# But that fire is, mmm, delightful

0:07:050:07:10

# With no place to go

0:07:100:07:13

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:07:130:07:17

# It doesn't show signs of stopping

0:07:170:07:20

# And I brought lots of corn for popping

0:07:200:07:24

# The lights are way down low

0:07:240:07:26

# So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:07:260:07:30

# Let it snow...let it snow... let it snow! #

0:07:300:07:38

Sky, I thought you said you were going

0:07:380:07:41

-to put our Christmas tree in your garden.

-Oh, I am.

0:07:410:07:44

But the ground's frozen,

0:07:440:07:46

so I'm going to wait for it to be softer to dig.

0:07:460:07:49

Would you be able to do anything with a tree without roots?

0:07:490:07:54

Yeah, there's lots of things I can do. I could...

0:07:540:07:58

Special report, special report.

0:07:580:08:00

Oh, there's Jelly, maybe she can show us.

0:08:000:08:03

This is special reporter, Jelly, reporting for Green Balloon Club

0:08:090:08:14

and today I'm in Southwark in London, hm.

0:08:140:08:16

I've come to help some friends take down their Christmas tree.

0:08:160:08:21

-Hi, Jelly.

-Hi, Jelly.

-Hi.

0:08:250:08:30

Hi, Jelly, come in.

0:08:300:08:32

Oh, look at your lovely Christmas tree, it's so pretty.

0:08:320:08:36

We're going to put it in the recycling.

0:08:360:08:39

Recycle it? Can't you plant it in the garden?

0:08:390:08:42

No, Jelly, cos it has no roots.

0:08:420:08:45

So how do you recycle a Christmas tree?

0:08:450:08:48

First we have to take off all the decorations.

0:08:480:08:51

Oh, I see, yes, all of them, can I help?

0:08:510:08:54

-Yes.

-Come on, let's start taking them down.

0:08:540:08:57

Oh, they're so pretty.

0:08:570:08:59

-Can I take the angel off the top?

-OK.

0:09:060:09:09

-Will you lift me up, Aaron?

-OK.

-Yeah.

0:09:090:09:13

So what do we do now we've taken all the Christmas decorations off?

0:09:180:09:24

Now we need to take the Christmas tree outside

0:09:240:09:28

so the council can pick it up.

0:09:280:09:30

Hello!

0:09:380:09:39

-Hello, Jelly.

-Have you come to collect our tree to be recycled?

0:09:390:09:43

Yes. You've taken off the decorations, brilliant.

0:09:430:09:47

What happens to it now?

0:09:470:09:48

Now it's off to the chipper.

0:09:480:09:50

-Chips! We haven't got any chips!

-No, Jelly.

0:09:500:09:54

-Not chips, a chipper.

-Oh.

0:09:540:09:56

-Come on, let's see what happens next.

-OK, this way.

0:09:560:10:00

-So this is a chipper?

-Yes.

0:10:020:10:05

-And this is Rob who'll be operating it.

-Hello, Rob.

0:10:050:10:09

-Hello, Jelly.

-So how does it work?

0:10:090:10:12

Well, the tree goes in there and it's chopped up into little bits

0:10:120:10:16

-and it ends up in the back of the lorry.

-Oh, wow.

0:10:160:10:19

-Let's see it then.

-You certainly can.

0:10:190:10:22

But you need ear defenders and glasses cos it's noisy.

0:10:220:10:26

I'm so excited!

0:10:260:10:30

I've got some trees collected locally.

0:10:300:10:33

-I think this is your one here.

-Oh, yes! Put it in!

0:10:330:10:37

It's going in!

0:10:380:10:39

Wow! Oh it's so noisy! Oh, look at it! Oh, it's spraying out!

0:10:390:10:46

So what happens to all these chippings over there now?

0:10:560:10:59

Some of them are piled up in large compost heaps along with

0:10:590:11:03

other garden waste like weeds and grass.

0:11:030:11:06

They naturally heat up and eventually break down into compost.

0:11:060:11:11

I've actually got some here, Jelly,

0:11:110:11:14

and it's ideal for mixing into the soil to give plants nutrients.

0:11:140:11:18

-Oh, so that compost is made of old Christmas trees.

-Yep.

0:11:180:11:24

-And it could be helped to grow new ones, couldn't it?

-Yep.

0:11:240:11:28

Thank you for showing me how to recycle a Christmas tree

0:11:280:11:32

-I've had so much fun, bye-bye for now.

-Byeee!

0:11:320:11:36

If you still have your Christmas tree why don't you try recycling it?

0:11:380:11:42

Hm. This is special reporter Jelly reporting for Green Balloon Club.

0:11:420:11:47

Back to you in the Green Balloon, up, up and away!

0:11:470:11:50

This looks interesting, Ant, what is it?

0:11:560:11:59

I thought we could make a New Year's picture for our scrap book.

0:11:590:12:03

So you've got all the seasons, spring, summer, autumn and winter.

0:12:030:12:08

That's right and I've cut out lots of pictures and now all we need to do

0:12:080:12:13

is match the pictures to each season.

0:12:130:12:16

I see one already...

0:12:160:12:18

it's a daffodil, it goes in Spring,

0:12:180:12:21

because all daffodils grow in spring.

0:12:210:12:24

I can see something that goes in spring too.

0:12:240:12:27

Look, it's a lamb and it goes in spring

0:12:270:12:30

because lambs are always born in spring.

0:12:300:12:33

And I can see one more thing. Ducklings with a mother duck.

0:12:330:12:38

-Yes, cos ducklings are born in spring too.

-Yes.

0:12:380:12:42

Now we have to do summer.

0:12:420:12:43

Sunflowers. They are called sunflowers because summer and sun.

0:12:430:12:49

It's very sunny in summer, Lily-Rose.

0:12:500:12:53

Yes, that is true.

0:12:530:12:55

And look, seagulls.

0:12:550:12:58

I think the seagulls go in summer.

0:12:580:13:00

Cos in summer you go to the seaside and there's lots at the seaside.

0:13:000:13:05

Yes. And there's one more thing missing in summer.

0:13:050:13:09

-How about the butterfly?

-Yes, butterflies go in summer.

0:13:090:13:13

Now we've got two more seasons to go - autumn and winter.

0:13:130:13:18

I know, for autumn -

0:13:190:13:22

-how about a Halloween pumpkin?

-Yes.

-Halloween's in autumn.

0:13:220:13:25

-He looks scary!

-Woo-ooh!

0:13:250:13:28

Now, what else is in autumn?

0:13:290:13:32

Autumn leaves.

0:13:320:13:34

Yes, I think you're right.

0:13:340:13:37

And a hedgehog.

0:13:380:13:41

Because they like to hibernate in the leaves in autumn.

0:13:410:13:46

Yes, you're absolutely right.

0:13:460:13:49

And now winter.

0:13:490:13:51

I think it's got to be these three.

0:13:510:13:54

Do you know what this is, Lily-Rose?

0:13:540:13:56

It's a tree with snow on.

0:13:560:13:59

Yes, a very snowy tree, isn't it?

0:13:590:14:01

How about this one? A robin.

0:14:040:14:07

Yes, the robin. And I definitely think that the holly goes in winter.

0:14:070:14:12

Yes, me too.

0:14:120:14:14

Look - we've missed the squirrel.

0:14:140:14:18

Hmm...this is difficult, cos you can see squirrels all around the year.

0:14:180:14:23

Cat, which season do YOU think is best for a squirrel?

0:14:230:14:27

Well, you can see squirrels all year round,

0:14:270:14:30

but you mostly see them in autumn when they collect food for winter.

0:14:300:14:35

Then I think the squirrel must be in autumn.

0:14:350:14:39

Thanks, Cat.

0:14:390:14:41

Cat's Creatures.

0:14:440:14:46

It's autumn, the trees are changing colour

0:14:460:14:50

and there's a very cheeky creature busy amongst the fallen leaves.

0:14:500:14:55

I'm a grey squirrel, and at this time of year I collect lots of acorns

0:14:550:15:00

to store for the winter, when it's cold and there's not much food.

0:15:000:15:04

That's if the other animals don't get there first!

0:15:040:15:08

You see, jays like to eat acorns too.

0:15:080:15:11

Although, right now, I've got a more serious problem on my paws.

0:15:110:15:16

This crafty squirrel is watching where I store my acorns,

0:15:160:15:20

so he doesn't have to do any of the hard work!

0:15:200:15:23

Hey, you! Get your own nuts!

0:15:240:15:27

There's only one thing for it. If I PRETEND to bury some acorns,

0:15:270:15:32

that will put him off the trail.

0:15:320:15:35

That fooled him. And with enough food stored, there's time to play.

0:15:360:15:40

It's a good job that I prepared for hard times

0:15:560:15:59

because, as autumn becomes winter, and it gets colder,

0:15:590:16:03

there isn't much food around to live on,

0:16:030:16:06

apart from my hidden stashes, of course.

0:16:060:16:09

But it's difficult to remember where I stored my acorns and nuts.

0:16:090:16:14

There! Found some.

0:16:140:16:17

It's amazing, really, that I can remember.

0:16:180:16:21

It's such a big forest. It helps that I have a fantastic sense of smell,

0:16:230:16:28

so I can sniff out my tasty prize.

0:16:280:16:32

As well as being quite at home on the forest floor,

0:16:320:16:36

look out for me high up in the trees.

0:16:360:16:39

I'm very nimble and sure-footed.

0:16:390:16:42

You could say I'm the king of the canopy.

0:16:420:16:45

Look at my high-speed, tree-top manoeuvres.

0:16:450:16:48

I use my tiny feet to cling on and my big, bushy tail for balance.

0:16:480:16:53

So next time you're in the park, look out for my cheeky little face,

0:16:560:17:00

my big, bushy tail and my tiny little paws.

0:17:000:17:04

You might even see me storing my acorns for winter,

0:17:040:17:08

or jumping from branch to branch in the tree tops.

0:17:080:17:12

-Skipper loves squirrels, don't you?

-SKIPPER WHINES

0:17:200:17:24

Oh, I see! You've spotted one on our computer!

0:17:240:17:28

It's this week's secret picture password time.

0:17:280:17:31

And we've got a choice between a daffodil or the squirrel.

0:17:310:17:37

Which one shall we choose? The daffodil or the squirrel?

0:17:370:17:41

Oh, the squirrel! Oh, you clever girl!

0:17:410:17:44

Let's see if you're right.

0:17:440:17:47

Oh, you're right! It IS the squirrel!

0:17:470:17:50

Well done!

0:17:500:17:52

When you want to get onto our website,

0:17:520:17:55

choose the squirrel, this week's secret picture password.

0:17:550:17:59

Now we're in, let's look around.

0:19:050:19:07

I spy some Green Balloon Club members.

0:19:070:19:10

It must be time for Spot Of The Week.

0:19:100:19:13

Hello! Today we are spotting pheasants. Let's get spotting!

0:19:140:19:19

I can see one!

0:19:230:19:25

Pheasants are very beautiful birds.

0:19:250:19:29

The males are called cocks.

0:19:290:19:32

Look at those cock pheasants fighting.

0:19:320:19:35

The males have gold, sparkly feathers.

0:19:360:19:39

And long, long tails.

0:19:390:19:41

I've found some pheasant footprints.

0:19:410:19:44

They look like arrows.

0:19:440:19:47

Can you see that his head is a beautiful green?

0:19:470:19:50

He has a white collar.

0:19:520:19:54

And he's got red patches round his eyes.

0:19:540:19:57

To spot pheasants, remember these clues.

0:19:570:20:00

The colourful males with their green head and their red eyes.

0:20:000:20:05

The white collar round his neck.

0:20:050:20:07

And their arrow-shaped footprints.

0:20:070:20:10

-Why don't you spot some pheasants now? Bye!

-Bye!

0:20:100:20:14

Oh, it's a pity Jay isn't here. He'd love that Spot.

0:20:140:20:18

Oh, I love pheasants. It's brilliant when you go out into the country

0:20:180:20:23

and you see this huge, colourful bird.

0:20:230:20:26

If you manage to spot one, go to online scrapbook and get a sticker.

0:20:260:20:30

You can even print yourself a green star if you want.

0:20:300:20:34

Sky, come and look at our pictures.

0:20:340:20:37

Oh, it looks lovely!

0:20:370:20:39

It's our new year's picture.

0:20:390:20:42

A picture of things we'd like to see this year.

0:20:420:20:45

We are going to be busy, aren't we? But now we'd better hold on tight

0:20:450:20:49

because we're coming in to land!

0:20:490:20:52
