# Come on and get on down to the city

0:00:020:00:04

# Where the trains all clatter through

0:00:040:00:07

# Hey! Look at that driver driving

0:00:070:00:10

-# I want to ride that train of blue

-Me too

0:00:100:00:12

# I'm looking way up high to the windows

0:00:120:00:15

# Take a peek for an inside view

0:00:150:00:17

# All these people busy working

0:00:170:00:20

# I want to see what they all do

0:00:200:00:22

# Come on, let's weave around the market

0:00:220:00:25

# Do you hear that hullabaloo?

0:00:250:00:27

# Everybody's busy selling

0:00:270:00:30

-# I wanna buy me something new

-Me too

0:00:300:00:33

# Look through the arches under the station

0:00:330:00:36

# Down where the pigeons perch and coo

0:00:360:00:38

# Take a taxi ride to the river

0:00:380:00:41

# I wanna drive down the avenue

0:00:410:00:44

# Hey, look at those buses gleaming

0:00:440:00:47

# They look so clean and spanking new

0:00:470:00:50

# All lined up to drive around the city

0:00:500:00:52

-# Let me ting that bell

-Ding, ding!

0:00:520:00:56

# Going to ride on round to the school stop

0:00:560:00:58

# Where the children hurry through

# Sit down, the teacher's teaching

0:01:000:01:03

-# I'd love to learn a thing or two

-Me too

0:01:030:01:07

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:01:070:01:09

# Riverseafingal, by the sea. #

0:01:090:01:11

Seven o'clock.

0:01:110:01:13

# Come on and get on down to the city

0:01:150:01:18

-# Where the ferryboat sails are blue

-Sails are blue

0:01:180:01:22

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:220:01:24

# She'd love to say hello to you... #

0:01:240:01:29

Me too!

0:01:300:01:32

Hello, honey pie. Come away in and see who's at home today.

0:01:330:01:38

# Granny Murray's house has two at home to play

0:01:380:01:41

# Granny Murray's house is home to... #

0:01:410:01:43

Who's here today? Well,

0:01:430:01:47

we've got Molly and Hope.

0:01:470:01:49

Don't just sit there, come on, let's get busy.

0:01:490:01:53

Is that the things we collected in the park?

0:01:560:01:59

That's exactly what it is.

0:01:590:02:01

Remember we went on a nature walk and we collected some things,

0:02:010:02:08

I didn't know what to put in my scrap book.

0:02:080:02:11

Would you like to help me stick them in?

0:02:110:02:14

What do you think? You set it out the way you think you'd like to.

0:02:140:02:19

Oh, beautiful!

0:02:190:02:22

Pine cones...

0:02:220:02:24

they remind me of Christmas.

0:02:240:02:26

We've got Molly and we've got Hope

0:02:260:02:29

but someone's missing from home today.

0:02:290:02:32

Oh, not any more.

0:02:340:02:36

Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:02:360:02:38

Who's that?

0:02:380:02:39

Oh yes, it's Rebecca with Mickey John.

0:02:390:02:44

Hello there!

0:02:440:02:45

Mickey John!

0:02:470:02:48

Hello!

0:02:480:02:49

And Rebecca.

0:02:490:02:51

Doing it by yourself?

0:02:510:02:53

What's going on here?

0:02:540:02:56

We're looking at things we collected on our nature walk.

0:02:560:02:59

-Look at that beautiful fir cone, Rebecca. It's lovely.

-Yeah.

0:02:590:03:03

Yes, it's from a fir tree, isn't it, Molly.

0:03:030:03:05

There's an idea. Why don't you all dress Claude up,

0:03:050:03:09

as a fir tree.

0:03:090:03:10

Why don't we waft over to the chairs in a gust of pine-fresh air?

0:03:120:03:17

Ha ha!

0:03:170:03:18

Good idea, Mickey John.

0:03:180:03:20

SHE LAUGHS

0:03:200:03:22

Look at this simply gorgeous scrap book.

0:03:250:03:28

My cousin Lulu gave it to me.

0:03:280:03:30

Oh, that's fantastic.

0:03:300:03:33

Well, I didn't know what to do with it until today.

0:03:330:03:38

What are you gonna do with it?

0:03:380:03:39

Look inside! The children and I have been sticking in things

0:03:390:03:43

we found on our nature walk.

0:03:430:03:46

Oh! A fine use for a fine book.

0:03:460:03:48

I'm glad you said that, Mickey John.

0:03:480:03:51

-Because, as

-I

-always say,

0:03:510:03:54

make the most of what you've been given.

0:03:540:03:56

I couldn't agree more, Granny Murray.

0:03:560:03:58

Speaking of presents, I heard baby Mia was coming later.

0:03:580:04:02

So I bought her this.

0:04:020:04:04

Oh, thank you, Mickey John.

0:04:040:04:07

Oh, we'll certainly make the most of that.

0:04:070:04:10

Oh, look at Claude.

0:04:100:04:12

He looks like a fine fir tree, waving in the wind. LAUGHTER

0:04:120:04:17

-Oh my!

-Nice outfit, Claude.

0:04:170:04:20

-I'm green with envy.

-Oh, you!

0:04:200:04:22

Well done, my cherubs.

0:04:220:04:25

What's this?

0:04:250:04:27

A fir cone, lovely.

0:04:270:04:28

Bye-bye, sweetheart.

0:04:280:04:30

-Be good for Granny Murray.

-Come on!

0:04:300:04:34

Remember, make the most of what you've been given.

0:04:360:04:40

Thank you. I'll see you later.

0:04:400:04:42

-Bye-bye. We'll be thinking of you.

-Me too!

0:04:420:04:45

Will you keep a wee eye on Mickey John?

0:04:450:04:48

Make sure he goes the right way to work.

0:04:480:04:51

I don't have much time. How can I speed across the river to work?

0:04:540:04:57

HORN BLARES

0:04:570:04:59

That's right, thanks!

0:04:590:05:01

# I'm in in in in in in a hurry

0:05:010:05:04

# I ne ne ne ne need to speed to work

0:05:040:05:06

# I'll take a take a ticket on a speedboat

0:05:070:05:09

# I'll be be be be there quite quick

0:05:100:05:12

# Hurry hurry hurry down the river

0:05:130:05:15

# Splashing splashing splashing through the waves

0:05:160:05:18

# Whining whining whining drives the speed up

0:05:180:05:21

# Chugga chugga chugga slows us down

0:05:220:05:24

# Rocking rocking rocking to the dock

# I'm in in in in in a hurry. #

0:05:360:05:38

Hurry, hurry hurry!

0:05:400:05:41

And hurry, hurry, hurry - put my tie on.

0:05:440:05:47

All dressed and ready to go.

0:05:540:05:56

Still got a bit of time yet.

0:05:560:05:59

I'll just sit down for a minute and settle my thoughts.

0:05:590:06:02

-Anyone home?

-Oh, goodness. Dr Juno.

0:06:020:06:05

-What a surprise to see you now.

-I've come to see Edgar.

0:06:050:06:09

-Who's that?

-The head teacher.

0:06:090:06:11

-You mean Mr Grant.

-I came to show him my painting of Riverseafingal.

0:06:110:06:15

We all had to paint a picture of the city for the art class.

0:06:150:06:18

Unfortunately, Edgar didn't have time to look at it. He was busy.

0:06:180:06:22

Can I see it? I'd love to see it.

0:06:220:06:25

OK.

0:06:250:06:27

Oh!

0:06:280:06:29

What do you think?

0:06:290:06:31

I think it's absolutely fantastic.

0:06:310:06:34

-Really?!

-It's more than fantastic. I love it, Dr Juno.

0:06:340:06:38

Your colour, composition, the way you've used your brush.

0:06:380:06:42

Are you all right?

0:06:420:06:43

I'm just so happy, Mickey John. I love that you love my painting.

0:06:430:06:48

-As you like it so much, it's yours.

-I can't take this.

0:06:480:06:52

-You can. I want you to have it.

-Oh, I don't know what to say.

0:06:520:06:57

-Thank you, Dr Juno.

-Just enjoy it.

0:06:570:07:00

-I've got to get to work. See you later.

-Bye! Thanks again.

0:07:000:07:04

Lucky me! I've been given two smashing things today.

0:07:040:07:08

Dr Juno's painting and Rebecca's fir cone.

0:07:080:07:12

I wonder how you're getting on my little lucky sausage.

0:07:120:07:16

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:07:170:07:19

# Riverseafingal by the sea

0:07:190:07:22

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:07:220:07:24

# Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:07:240:07:27

Oh, she's lovely, isn't she?

0:07:280:07:31

Hello, baby Mia.

0:07:310:07:33

Hello!

0:07:330:07:35

You know, I've just remembered I've got a present for you.

0:07:350:07:39

Hello!

0:07:390:07:42

Hello!

0:07:420:07:43

This is from Mickey John.

0:07:430:07:45

-That was nice of your dad to buy baby Mia a present.

-Yes.

0:07:450:07:50

She likes it!

0:07:500:07:52

What are you doing now, Daddy?

0:07:580:08:00

Right, come on class, that's the way.

0:08:000:08:02

In you come. Come on.

0:08:020:08:05

Nice and quiet, please.

0:08:050:08:07

Now, I want you all to come up in ones and twos

0:08:070:08:11

and look at this painting by Dr Juno.

0:08:110:08:13

Then I want you all to think about your favourite things.

0:08:130:08:17

Things you love in Riverseafingal.

0:08:170:08:19

Later on we'll write them down.

0:08:190:08:21

But first, time for me to do some hard work.

0:08:210:08:24

# I whoop with joy when I go to school in the morning

0:08:250:08:29

# Teaching with my chums and see the children learning

0:08:290:08:33

# School day, work away!

0:08:330:08:36

# I'm learning learning learning when I'm teaching

0:08:360:08:40

# I'm teaching learning teaching learning, teaching

0:08:400:08:44

# School day, work away!

0:08:440:08:46

# Teaching to count and teaching to read

0:08:460:08:49

# Learning about birds and plants and seeds

0:08:490:08:51

# Playing games and sports outdoors

0:08:510:08:53

# Blowing my whistle and keeping scores

0:08:530:08:55

# School day, work away!

0:08:550:08:58

# Learning learning learning when I'm teaching

0:08:580:09:00

# We're learning learning learning when he's teaching

0:09:000:09:04

# School day, work away!

0:09:040:09:07

# Oh, the secretary's filing as she does her organising

0:09:070:09:11

# The jani fixes, the cookie mixes

0:09:110:09:13

# And the cleaner keeps it shining

0:09:130:09:15

# I whoop with joy when I go to school in the morning

0:09:150:09:19

# All in a line in the dinner queue

0:09:190:09:20

# While the cook he cooks and serves us stew

0:09:200:09:23

# Answering the questions where and why

0:09:230:09:24

# How does it work and how does it fly?

0:09:240:09:27

# School day, work away!

0:09:270:09:29

# I'm learning learning learning when I'm teaching

0:09:290:09:33

# He's learning learning learning when he's teaching

0:09:330:09:37

# School day, work away!

0:09:370:09:40

# All the children peep and eye me as they sit and try their writing

0:09:400:09:44

# I take a look, I mark their books

0:09:440:09:47

# The good ones get a smiley

0:09:470:09:49

# Oh I whoop with joy when I go to school in the morning! #

0:09:490:09:53

BELL RINGS

0:09:530:09:55

OK, everyone. Pack up and off you go.

0:09:550:09:57

I hope you've written down what you like most about Riverseafingal.

0:09:570:10:01

Off you go.

0:10:010:10:02

-Oh, hiya.

-Bobby, what are you up to?

0:10:070:10:10

I've just been on this nature run.

0:10:100:10:13

It was ace. I saw loads of brilliant things.

0:10:130:10:15

Here, I've collected some stuff for you.

0:10:150:10:18

Oh, thanks, Bobby.

0:10:180:10:21

Ooh. Leaves...and twigs.

0:10:210:10:24

Ferns.

0:10:250:10:27

Seeds and bark.

0:10:280:10:30

This is fantastic. Thanks, Bobby.

0:10:300:10:33

Thought it might be useful for your class.

0:10:330:10:36

That's really kind. And I can really keep all this?

0:10:360:10:39

Of course, I collected it for you. Wow. That's a great picture.

0:10:390:10:44

Yeah, it's good.

0:10:440:10:45

-Did you do it yourself?

-Ha, no!

0:10:450:10:47

I love it, who did it?

0:10:470:10:49

Dr Juno, it's fantastic.

0:10:490:10:51

-She painted it for her art class.

-No way!

0:10:510:10:55

She's clever, isn't she? A doctor and an artist.

0:10:550:10:58

I want you to have the painting. You obviously love it as much as I do.

0:10:580:11:02

-What? No, I couldn't.

-But you gave me all this stuff.

0:11:020:11:06

-I want you to have it.

-Oh, crumbs!

0:11:060:11:09

Well, all right then. Thanks very much.

0:11:090:11:13

I know where I'll put it.

0:11:130:11:15

Above my fireplace where everybody'll see it.

0:11:150:11:19

Thanks for all this, Bobby.

0:11:190:11:21

No, thank you for the painting. Bye.

0:11:210:11:23

Oh, people are so lovely, aren't they?

0:11:230:11:28

I wonder how you're doing, my lovely little girl.

0:11:280:11:31

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:11:310:11:34

# Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:11:340:11:37

-Look, Granny Murray, there's a tree.

-Oh, there's a tree!

0:11:400:11:45

Well done, Rebecca.

0:11:450:11:47

Look, Granny Murray,

0:11:470:11:49

-there's a twig.

-Well spotted, you!

0:11:490:11:53

A twig, Mia.

0:11:530:11:55

You hold onto that, my darling.

0:11:550:11:57

Oh, wow! Shall we show them to your dad later?

0:12:000:12:05

-Yeah.

-Good girl.

0:12:050:12:07

Thanks for all your hard work, class.

0:12:180:12:21

I've enjoyed reading things you love in Riverseafingal.

0:12:210:12:25

Some of you like the Harlequin Hospital in the picture here.

0:12:250:12:29

Some of you like the River Fingal.

0:12:290:12:31

You can see it in the picture... here.

0:12:310:12:34

Oh, just a moment.

0:12:340:12:36

I've been building up to this moment all day.

0:12:360:12:39

The children have written about Riverseafingal

0:12:390:12:43

but now I don't have a picture to go through their ideas with.

0:12:430:12:47

Where did the time go?

0:12:470:12:48

At 7 o'clock, I took Rebecca to see Granny Murray.

0:12:480:12:52

The children had collected things from a nature walk.

0:12:520:12:55

Granny Murray stuck everything in a scrapbook as a memento.

0:12:550:12:59

She told me it had been a present to her

0:12:590:13:03

and she hadn't known what to do with it.

0:13:030:13:06

Rebecca gave me a present of a fir cone.

0:13:060:13:09

At 8 o'clock, I arrived at school.

0:13:090:13:11

Dr Juno showed me a picture of Riverseafingal that she'd painted.

0:13:110:13:17

I thought the painting was wonderful.

0:13:170:13:21

Dr Juno was so pleased I liked it that she gave it to me!

0:13:210:13:25

At 9 o'clock, the children arrived. I asked them to look at the painting

0:13:250:13:30

and write down what they liked best about Riverseafingal.

0:13:300:13:34

At 12 o'clock, Bobby brought things she'd collected on a nature run -

0:13:340:13:38

leaves, seeds, twigs and bark.

0:13:380:13:41

She thought they'd come in useful for my class.

0:13:410:13:44

Bobby spotted the painting, and loved it so much I gave it to her.

0:13:440:13:48

At one o'clock, the children arrived for lessons.

0:13:480:13:52

I was talking through their favourite things when I realised

0:13:520:13:56

I didn't have the picture any more.

0:13:560:13:59

How could we talk about our favourite things in the city

0:13:590:14:02

without a picture to look at?

0:14:020:14:04

Remember, make the most of what you've been given.

0:14:040:14:08

Make the most of what you've been given.

0:14:080:14:11

Of course! I gave the picture to Bobby,

0:14:110:14:14

but she gave me things from her nature walk in return.

0:14:140:14:17

I'll make them most of Bobby's gift and make a new picture

0:14:170:14:21

of Riverseafingal. But it's a race against time!

0:14:210:14:25

# I've got to do it I've got to do it

# Will he know how to fix it?

0:14:450:14:47

0:15:070:15:11

Thanks for all your hard work.

0:15:110:15:13

I enjoyed reading your stories about Riverseafingal.

0:15:130:15:16

You said you like walking by the river.

0:15:160:15:19

You can see the river snaking through here.

0:15:190:15:22

And you like walking on the bridges.

0:15:220:15:25

You get the best views from these bridges -

0:15:250:15:29

views like the amazing Riverseafingal Castle.

0:15:290:15:32

Some of you like the Harlequin Hospital best, here in the picture.

0:15:320:15:37

See if you can guess what everything's made from.

0:15:370:15:41

What's the castle made from? Yes?

0:15:410:15:43

-Leaves.

-That's right.

0:15:430:15:45

What about the bridges? Quite a rough texture. What do you think?

0:15:450:15:50

-Bark.

-That's right, the bark of a tree.

0:15:500:15:53

What's the Harlequin Hospital made from? Yes?

0:15:530:15:57

-A pine cone.

-Yes, a pine cone, or a fir cone.

0:15:570:16:00

Ah, Rebecca, thanks so much for giving me that fir cone.

0:16:000:16:05

..Yes, you are!

0:16:100:16:12

Yes. Oh, how's your picture coming on, Rebecca?

0:16:120:16:15

-Fine.

-Let's see, darling.

0:16:150:16:18

Aw, that's beautiful! Well done!

0:16:180:16:21

I think you've got an artistic streak, just like your dad.

0:16:210:16:27

He'll be here to pick you up soon, darling.

0:16:270:16:30

-Mickey John.

-Hello, Granny Murray.

-Come away through.

0:16:400:16:44

-Rebecca, Daddy's here.

-Hello, beautiful girl!

0:16:440:16:48

-Hello, Daddy.

-Looks like you've had a lovely time.

0:16:480:16:51

-Yes.

-We certainly did. It was a pleasure.

0:16:510:16:54

-Thank you, Granny Murray.

-Oh, my special girl!

0:16:540:16:58

-You're good as gold!

-Thanks from me too, Granny Murray.

0:16:580:17:01

-Saying "Make the most of what you've been given" saved the day.

-I'm glad.

0:17:010:17:07

Come on, you two. Home, home.

0:17:070:17:10

-Looking forward to next time.

-Me too!

0:17:110:17:14

Come on, Rebecca. Let's chat.

0:17:140:17:17

I suppose you want me to tell you all about my time too.

0:17:170:17:21

# Well, there was

0:17:210:17:24

# Waving, greeting, hello, meeting

0:17:240:17:26

# Bye-bye, closing, waking, dozing

0:17:260:17:27

# Eating, sleeping fetching, sketching

0:17:270:17:29

# Glueing, chewing Sticking up and wiping round

0:17:290:17:33

# Dressing up and sitting down! #

0:17:330:17:35

But what was really special about today? Well...

0:17:370:17:41

Claude was dressed as a fir tree

0:17:410:17:43

because we were looking at things the children and I had collected

0:17:430:17:48

on our nature walk.

0:17:480:17:50

I stuck everything in a lovely big scrap book as a memento of the day.

0:17:500:17:55

Mickey John gave me a rattle.

0:17:550:17:57

It was a present for baby Mia.

0:17:570:18:00

Mickey John left for work and I gave Mia her rattle.

0:18:000:18:03

She was a very happy baby!

0:18:030:18:05

Later on, Rebecca helped me take Mia for a nice, long walk.

0:18:050:18:10

Rebecca pointed out lots of lovely things to see along the way.

0:18:100:18:15

Back home, Rebecca made a picture with things collected on the walk.

0:18:150:18:20

Meanwhile, Mickey John remembered what I told him.

0:18:200:18:24

Make the most of what you've been given.

0:18:240:18:27

Bobby had given him a collection of things

0:18:270:18:30

and Mickey John used them to make a big picture of Riverseafingal.

0:18:300:18:35

I hope you remember to always make the most of what you've been given.

0:18:360:18:40

And I hope you enjoyed yourself.

0:18:400:18:43

Me too!

0:18:430:18:44

Bye-bye, honey pie!

0:18:440:18:46

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:18:460:18:51

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal, that's for me

0:18:510:18:56

# Come on and get down to the city Where the ferry boat sails are blue

0:18:560:19:01

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:19:010:19:03

# She'd love to say goodbye to you! #

0:19:030:19:08
