# Take a taxi ride to the river

0:00:400:00:42

# They look clean and spanking new

0:00:470:00:50

0:01:260:01:29

# Me Too! #

0:01:290:01:31

Hello, Honey pie. Come a-way 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...#

0:01:410:01:44

Who's here today?

0:01:440:01:46

I've got Ellie and Sean.

0:01:460:01:48

But don't just sit there my wee pickles. Let's get moving.

0:01:480:01:53

We'll do something new today.

0:01:530:01:55

Press play for Granny Murray.

Clap, clap.

0:02:020:02:04

Potatoes.

0:02:070:02:10

Then, thumbs. Thumbs.

0:02:100:02:12

Potato, potato.

0:02:130:02:15

Thumb, thumb.

0:02:150:02:17

We've got Ellie and Sean.

0:02:170:02:20

But someone's missing from home today.

0:02:200:02:22

Och, not anymore!

0:02:240:02:26

Whose legs are those coming down the steps?

0:02:260:02:29

It's Mickey John and Rebecca. Hello there!

0:02:290:02:33

MUSIC

0:02:330:02:34

Hello, Mickey John!

0:02:340:02:36

Hey, good music!

0:02:400:02:43

-It's right up my street.

-I'm glad you approve.

0:02:430:02:46

We've been doing some jiving this morning, haven't we!

0:02:460:02:49

Rebecca's a good mover. She's shown me a thing or two.

0:02:490:02:53

Now Rebecca's here, we'll do something new.

0:02:530:02:57

Now, let's dress Claude up as a jiver.

0:02:570:03:00

-We can jive over to the chairs.

-Rock'n'roll.

0:03:000:03:04

I'm quite envious of Rebecca. She's going to have a fun time today.

0:03:110:03:16

You'll have a fun time at school.

0:03:160:03:18

It depends on your idea of fun. We're doing maths today. Sums.

0:03:180:03:23

There's going to be hard learning today.

0:03:230:03:26

You're such a clever chap.

0:03:260:03:28

I don't know. I struggle with numbers at the best of times.

0:03:280:03:31

Teaching children their times table will be hard work.

0:03:310:03:35

Nonsense. People learn best when they're having fun.

0:03:350:03:39

Look at Claude. He's definitely having fun.

0:03:390:03:41

-Oh, Claude. You look like a real swinger.

-You look great.

0:03:440:03:48

Well done.

0:03:480:03:49

-Daddy!

-What's this? A little yellow number five.

0:03:490:03:52

Hey, Rebecca. You've given me a 'High Five'.

0:03:520:03:56

You're my number one, sweetheart.

0:03:560:03:58

'Bye.

0:03:580:04:00

Come on, Mickey John.

0:04:000:04:02

Now remember, people learn best when they're having fun.

0:04:060:04:10

Thank you. I'll see you later.

0:04:100:04:12

'Bye. We'll be thinking of you.

0:04:120:04:14

Me too!

0:04:140:04:16

You keep a wee eye on Mickey John. Make sure he goes the right way.

All dressed and ready to go.

Knock, knock.

0:06:160:06:18

Good morning. What brings you to school?

0:06:180:06:21

I've just popped in to remind you

0:06:210:06:23

that Raymond and I have been asked to organise the lunchtime jive club

0:06:230:06:29

-by Edgar.

-Edgar?

0:06:290:06:32

You know, Edgar. Your head teacher, darling!

0:06:320:06:36

Oh, right. Mr Grant.

0:06:360:06:38

He thinks it's a great way to keep fit. Why don't you come?

0:06:380:06:43

I can't. I have to plan my arithmetic class.

0:06:430:06:46

Oh well, suit yourself. 'Bye.

0:06:460:06:49

Numbers, numbers.

0:06:490:06:51

I wonder how my little 'High Five' is getting on.

0:06:560:06:59

I bet she'd enjoy Tina and Raymond's lunchtime jive club.

You go first, Rebecca. Where is the bean bag going to land?

0:07:140:07:18

Number eight.

0:07:190:07:21

Let's play hopscotch.

0:07:210:07:23

My goodness. You're good at that, Rebecca.

0:07:260:07:29

You need to teach Granny Murray how.

0:07:290:07:32

What is it you're supposed to do?

MUSIC

0:07:360:07:38

What are you doing now, Daddy?

0:07:420:07:46

I'm hopeless with numbers.

0:07:520:07:54

Mickey John!

0:07:540:07:55

Hello!

0:07:550:07:57

-Hello there, Rudi. How are you?

-I'm fine thanks, mate.

0:07:570:08:01

I'm glad I'm not allergic to flowers.

0:08:010:08:03

-Who are they for?

-My head teacher.

0:08:030:08:06

-Why are you giving him flowers?

-I'm just delivering them.

0:08:060:08:10

What are you up to?

0:08:100:08:12

I'm writing out the two times table for my class.

0:08:120:08:16

I'm not good at writing out numbers.

0:08:160:08:18

Take these.

0:08:180:08:19

Why don't you try using these?

0:08:210:08:23

Stencils!

0:08:230:08:25

Yeah. Jack loves using them to write and make shapes.

0:08:250:08:29

These stencils are brilliant.

0:08:290:08:31

You can keep them. Jack's got loads.

0:08:310:08:33

Mega thanks, Rudi.

0:08:330:08:35

I'm not sure I can use them on this. But they'll come in handy.

0:08:350:08:40

Alright.

0:08:400:08:42

Before I go, why was six afraid of seven?

0:08:420:08:47

-I don't know.

-Because seven ate (eight) nine.

0:08:470:08:53

Oh!

-Hey!

-Hey!

0:10:380:10:40

Hey, are you hip to what we're putting down?

0:10:400:10:43

Yeah! I mean, abso-jiving-lutely!

0:10:430:10:47

Cool!

0:10:470:10:49

Oh, Mickey John, come and join our lunchtime jive club.

0:10:490:10:54

It'll be top of the bops!

0:10:540:10:56

Thanks, but no. I have to prepare my arithmetic lesson.

0:10:560:11:01

Suit yourself!

0:11:030:11:05

Those two have enough energy

0:11:080:11:10

to light up the whole of Riverseafingal by themselves.

0:11:100:11:13

I'd better copy out the two times table.

0:11:130:11:16

I wonder how Granny Murray and Rebecca are getting on.

0:11:160:11:19

-Are we ready to play cricket?

-Yes!

-OK, girls.

0:11:270:11:30

I'll put this here. You stand here, Rebecca.

0:11:300:11:33

That's the way. Now, here we go.

0:11:330:11:36

One, two, three!

0:11:360:11:38

Good girl! Run to Granny Murray.

0:11:380:11:40

One. Two. Three. Throw it to Granny Murray.

0:11:400:11:45

Good girl. Woo-hoo!

0:11:450:11:47

You are doing so well.

0:11:470:11:49

Wait 'til we tell your dad you've been playing cricket.

0:11:490:11:53

I'm thinking of you, Daddy.

0:11:530:11:54

Two times two is... four.

0:11:580:12:03

Oh dear, it's nearly end of lunchtime

0:12:040:12:07

and I've only got to two times two.

0:12:070:12:09

My class will be back any minute eager to learn

0:12:090:12:12

and I'm not ready to teach them. Where did the time go?

0:12:120:12:16

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

0:12:170:12:20

The children were bopping to some jive music.

0:12:200:12:24

Rebecca was in for a fun-packed day.

0:12:240:12:26

At eight o'clock, I arrived at work.

0:12:260:12:28

Tina stopped by.

0:12:280:12:30

She and Raymond are running a jive club at lunchtime.

0:12:300:12:34

I told her I would be busy preparing the lesson.

0:12:340:12:37

At nine o'clock, I was writing my numbers when Rudi passed by.

0:12:370:12:41

He helped me by giving me Jack's stencils.

0:12:410:12:45

When Rudi left, my class arrived.

0:12:450:12:47

At 12 o'clock, my class went for lunch.

0:12:470:12:50

Raymond and Tina dropped by,

0:12:500:12:52

ready for their bebopping lunchtime jive club.

0:12:520:12:56

After they left, I realised my class would be back soon

0:12:560:12:59

and I hadn't prepared my lesson very well.

0:12:590:13:02

Remember, people learn best when they're having fun.

0:13:020:13:06

People learn best when they're having fun.

0:13:060:13:09

Of course! I haven't made this numbers lesson fun.

0:13:090:13:12

Ah, Tina and Raymond have given me an idea how to make it fun.

0:13:120:13:16

I need to get it together before my class get back from lunch.

0:13:160:13:20

It's a race against time.

0:13:200:13:22

# I've gotta do it I've gotta do it

0:13:220:13:24

# I've gotta beat the clock before the chime

0:13:240:13:26

# I gotta sort it I gotta sort it

0:13:260:13:29

# I gotta do the job on time

0:13:290:13:31

# Like a busy bee I'm gonna beat that bong

0:13:310:13:34

# I'm gonna finish this job before I finish this song

0:13:340:13:37

# Do we think he's gonna do it? The job that needs to be done

0:13:370:13:42

# Will he know how to fix it? Will he finish what he has begun?

0:13:420:13:46

# As sure as we are friends He will get there in the end

0:13:460:13:49

# Because he knows what he should do

0:13:490:13:52

-# I'm gonna do it

-He's gonna do it

Ready for your afternoon numbers lesson?

0:14:070:14:10

ALL: Yes!

0:14:100:14:12

Hold on to your hats, jivers,

0:14:120:14:14

because we're going to learn our jive times table.

0:14:140:14:17

Take it away Tina and Raymond.

0:14:170:14:19

# One, two, three, four, five

0:14:190:14:22

# Let's count numbers while we jive

0:14:220:14:24

# Six, seven, eight, nine, ten

0:14:240:14:26

# Do the two times table and start again

0:14:260:14:28

-# One times two is...

-ALL: Two!

0:14:280:14:31

-# Two times two is...

-ALL: Four.

0:14:310:14:33

0:14:510:14:53

I hope you're having fun, Rebecca.

0:14:550:14:58

One apple. Now watch this.

0:15:020:15:05

We need to be very careful of our fingers.

0:15:050:15:08

-What do we have?

-Two.

0:15:080:15:11

Oh! How many now?

0:15:110:15:13

-Three.

-Four pieces of apple.

0:15:130:15:16

Five.

0:15:180:15:19

Oh, oh, oh.

0:15:190:15:21

Six.

0:15:210:15:23

-Oops.

-Seven.

0:15:230:15:25

OK, and the last piece.

0:15:250:15:28

There we are.

0:15:280:15:30

Eight. Eight pieces of apple.

0:15:300:15:32

Granny Murray, now there's seven.

0:15:340:15:37

Yes, you little trickster.

0:15:370:15:39

'I miss you, Daddy.'

0:15:390:15:42

BELL RINGS

0:15:450:15:48

Mickey John, come through.

0:15:500:15:53

Look who's here, Rebecca.

0:15:530:15:55

Hello, beautiful girl. How are you, my friend?

0:15:550:15:58

-Have you had a lovely time?

-You bet we have.

0:15:580:16:01

Say thank you to Granny Murray.

0:16:010:16:03

Come here, my darling. Oh, good girl.

0:16:030:16:06

Thanks from me, too, Granny Murray.

0:16:060:16:08

Your saying people learn best when they have fun saved the day.

0:16:080:16:12

Well, I never did.

0:16:120:16:14

Come on now, you'd better be off.

0:16:140:16:17

Looking forward to next time.

0:16:180:16:20

Me, too. Come on, Rebecca. Let's chat about our time away.

0:16:200:16:24

And I suppose you'll want me to tell you all about my time, too.

0:16:240:16:28

# Well there was

0:16:280:16:31

# Waving, greeting, hello, meeting, bye-bye, closing, waking, dozing

0:16:310:16:34

# Eating, sleeping, fetching, sketching, painting, stretching,

0:16:340:16:37

# Sticking up and wiping around

0:16:370:16:40

# Washing up and squirting down

0:16:400:16:42

# Then there was hugging, squishing, walking, pushing

0:16:420:16:46

# Dancing, dusting, sharing, choosing

0:16:460:16:47

# Talking, cooking, drying, cleaning,

0:16:470:16:49

# Saving, paving, laughing, joking Using things and rushing round

0:16:490:16:53

# Picking up and putting down

0:16:530:16:56

# Then there was playing, planning, creeping, jumping

0:16:560:16:59

# Chasing, painting, laughing, baking

0:16:590:17:01

# Bathing, dressing, singing, swinging

0:17:010:17:02

# Rocking, sliding, hunting, hiding, jumping up and turning round

0:17:020:17:07

# Dressing up and sitting down. #

0:17:070:17:09

SHE SIGHS

0:17:090:17:11

But what was really special about today?

0:17:110:17:14

Well, Claude was dressed as a jiver,

0:17:140:17:18

because today we were jiving

0:17:180:17:21

to some good old Rock'n'roll music.

0:17:210:17:24

Mickey John came along with Rebecca.

0:17:240:17:26

He liked the Rock'n'roll music.

0:17:260:17:29

Later on, I had a game of hopscotch with the children.

0:17:290:17:32

Rebecca showed how good she is at counting and hopping.

0:17:320:17:36

In the afternoon, we had a big game of cricket in the park.

0:17:360:17:40

Rebecca hit the ball and got a lot of runs.

0:17:400:17:43

We counted them all up. It was great fun.

0:17:430:17:46

After all that running about, Rebecca and I had some quiet time.

0:17:460:17:51

I cut up an apple into two,

0:17:510:17:53

three, four, five, six, seven, eight pieces.

0:17:530:17:56

But then Rebecca ate a piece,

0:17:570:17:59

so there was only seven.

0:17:590:18:01

And before long, there were no apple pieces at all.

0:18:010:18:04

Mickey John remembered I'd told him

0:18:040:18:07

people learn best when they're having fun.

0:18:070:18:11

He had fun teaching the children their two times table

0:18:110:18:14

by turning it into a jive.

0:18:140:18:16

What a fun day!

0:18:160:18:19

I've lost count of all the fun we've had.

0:18:190:18:22

I hope you've enjoyed yourself.

0:18:220:18:24

Me, too.

0:18:240:18:26

Bye-bye, honey pie.

0:18:260:18:28

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal,

0:18:330:18:36

# Riverseafingal by the sea

0:18:360:18:38

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:18:380:18:41

# Riverseafingal, that's for me

0:18:410:18:43

# Come on and get on down to the city

0:18:430:18:46

# Where the ferry boat sails are blue

0:18:460:18:48

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:18:480:18:51

# She'd love to say goodbye to you

0:18:510:18:54

# Me too. #
