# Take a taxi ride to the river

0:00:380:00:41

0:01:090:01:11

Seven o'clock.

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:220:01:24

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

0:01:240:01:30

ME TOO!

0:01:300:01:32

Hallo, Honeypie! 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... #

0:01:410:01:44

Who's here today?

0:01:440:01:45

Well, we've got Molly and we've got Hope.

0:01:450:01:49

Don't just sit there, my cherrybuns.

0:01:490:01:52

Come on! What's in Granny Murray's shelves today?

0:01:520:01:56

Let's have a wee look, girls.

0:01:560:01:59

We can see the world through different colours.

0:01:590:02:02

Oh, I love red. Let's have a look.

0:02:020:02:06

Oh, wow! See Molly?

0:02:060:02:09

What about yours, Hope? You hold yours up.

0:02:090:02:12

Oh, how do you see the world, Hope?

0:02:120:02:15

All bright, like the sunshine.

0:02:150:02:17

So it is! What about yours, Molly?

0:02:170:02:20

I think I'm under the sea.

0:02:200:02:24

You think you're under the sea?

0:02:240:02:26

Well, we've got Hope and we've got Molly.

0:02:260:02:29

Someone's missing from home today.

0:02:290:02:32

Oh, not any more! Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:02:330:02:37

Oh, it's Mickey John with Rebecca. Hallo, there!

0:02:370:02:43

Mickey John, hallo. And Rebecca.

0:02:430:02:48

Hello, girls, what are you up to?

0:02:520:02:55

Looking through coloured windows, seeing different colours.

0:02:550:03:00

Try this one, Mickey John.

0:03:000:03:01

Oh, right.

0:03:010:03:03

Oh! Everything looks golden yellow now.

0:03:030:03:06

Like the sky this morning. That was golden yellow, too.

0:03:060:03:09

Why was that?

0:03:090:03:11

I don't know, you'll have to ask the professor.

0:03:110:03:14

You always say "ask the professor" when you don't know the answer!

0:03:140:03:19

Now you're here, Rebecca,

0:03:190:03:22

let's dress Claude up as a wise old professor,

0:03:220:03:25

and you, Mickey Brainbox John,

0:03:250:03:27

can take a seat over with the chairs.

0:03:270:03:29

You might have to ask the professor about that one!

0:03:290:03:33

THEY LAUGH

0:03:330:03:36

You're a right tease, Mickey John, so you are.

0:03:360:03:40

You don't know the answers.

0:03:400:03:42

You get away with it or you make up some nonsense!

0:03:420:03:46

That's not true! Well, not always.

0:03:460:03:48

-Sometimes things are complicated.

-Not because you're a muddlehead?

0:03:480:03:53

How dare you! I know the answer to lots of things.

0:03:530:03:56

It isn't always easy to explain.

0:03:560:03:59

You can make it simple.

0:03:590:04:01

-Do you really think so?

-Yes.

0:04:010:04:02

What do you make of that, professor? THEY LAUGH

0:04:020:04:07

Now we have a professor to ask. Can you tell us about

0:04:070:04:10

the colour of the sun at dawn?

0:04:100:04:12

Hello, professor? Anyone there?

0:04:120:04:16

He is a professor, he's just taking a long time to think.

0:04:160:04:19

-Here you go, Daddy.

-Thank you, sweetheart.

0:04:190:04:22

A picture of the sun. That'll keep me happy all day. Thanks, Rebecca!

0:04:220:04:27

Bye-bye, have fun with Granny Murray.

0:04:270:04:30

Come on.

0:04:300:04:32

Now remember, if you know the answer, you can make it simple.

0:04:360:04:40

-Thank you. See you later.

-Bye-bye, my darlin'.

0:04:400:04:44

-We'll be thinking of you!

-Me too!

0:04:440:04:46

Will you keep a wee eye on Mickey John?

0:04:460:04:49

Make sure he goes the right way to work.

0:04:490:04:52

Oh, I don't have much time!

0:04:540:04:56

How can I speed across the river to work?

0:04:560:04:59

BOAT HORN

0:04:590:05:00

That's right, thanks!

0:05:000:05:02

0:05:440:05:51

All dressed and ready to go.

0:05:540:05:58

# The sun has got his hat on, Hip, hip, hip, hooray!

0:05:580:06:02

-Oh! And there's Mickey John, Kai.

-Hello.

0:06:020:06:05

Hello, Kai! Hello, Bobby. Have you come to look round the school?

0:06:050:06:09

-Yes.

-One of the older children will show Kai around.

0:06:090:06:13

I've asked Sean to look after you.

0:06:130:06:16

He'll show you the exciting things we do in school.

0:06:160:06:19

Tell Kai what sort of things.

0:06:190:06:21

Today I'm teaching about Night and Day.

0:06:210:06:24

When it's light that's day,

0:06:240:06:26

and when it's dark, that's night-time.

0:06:260:06:28

How does it get dark?

0:06:280:06:30

That's a very complicated question.

0:06:300:06:33

How does it get light?

0:06:330:06:35

That's another very complicated question.

0:06:350:06:38

I think I'll have to ask the professor about that!

0:06:380:06:42

See? You'll learn all sorts of things at school.

0:06:420:06:45

Oh look, there's Sean.

0:06:450:06:47

OK, off you go, Kai.

0:06:470:06:48

Have a great time. I'll pick you up at lunch time.

0:06:480:06:52

-Bye, Mummy.

-Bye!

0:06:520:06:54

Aw, my grown-up boy! Will he all right?

0:06:570:07:00

He'll be right as rain, happy as a sunbeam.

0:07:000:07:03

Sean will look after him.

0:07:030:07:05

-See you later.

-OK. See you!

0:07:050:07:07

Ah. I hope you're happy, my little sunbeams!

0:07:070:07:11

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

0:07:110:07:17

Ooh, wow, have you seen one of these before, cupcakes?

0:07:180:07:24

Do you know what it is? It's a sundial.

0:07:240:07:27

How it works is, on a sunny day,

0:07:270:07:30

the sun casts a shadow on this wee bit here,

0:07:300:07:33

and the shadow points to the numbers on the dial and tells us the time.

0:07:330:07:38

-Your daddy would love one of these at home, wouldn't he?

-Yes.

0:07:380:07:42

-BELL

-What are you doing now, Daddy?

0:07:460:07:49

There goes the bell and here comes my class.

0:07:490:07:51

That's it, in you come. Quick march, let's have you.

0:07:510:07:55

We've got a lot to get through this morning.

0:07:550:07:58

-Good morning everyone.

-ALL: Good morning.

0:07:580:08:02

Today we're going to learn all about Mr Smiley Sun...I mean the sun,

0:08:020:08:08

and what it does. We'll also learn about night and day.

0:08:080:08:12

But first we need to learn a bit about the world.

0:08:120:08:15

This is the world. And this is Riverseafingal.

0:08:170:08:21

So. Where do we fit on the world?

0:08:210:08:23

I'll tell you.

0:08:230:08:25

Oh. Where's Riverseafingal?

0:08:250:08:27

There it is! Good job.

0:08:270:08:29

Right. It goes there.

0:08:290:08:32

I want you all to look at the world,

0:08:320:08:34

and see if you can draw what shape it is. Go on, then.

0:08:340:08:39

What shape is the world?

0:08:390:08:41

I'm seeing some good shapes here.

0:08:410:08:44

Let's have a look.

0:08:440:08:46

Excellent, you've all got it right.

0:08:470:08:50

You've drawn a circle. That's right.

0:08:500:08:52

So far, so good. Now it's time to get down to some really hard work.

0:08:520:08:57

# Oh, what joy when I go to school in the morning

0:08:570:09:01

0:10:210:10:27

Well done, everyone. It's been a good morning's work.

0:10:270:10:30

SCHOOL BELL

0:10:300:10:31

Off you go and have lunch.

0:10:310:10:33

Be back this afternoon to learn more about night and day.

0:10:330:10:36

Hi, Teacher!

0:10:420:10:45

I've brought you an apple.

0:10:450:10:47

Oh, hi, Dr Juno. What are you up to?

0:10:470:10:49

I've been handing out fruit, part of my healthy-eating campaign.

0:10:490:10:53

I see. Jolly good.

0:10:530:10:55

-There you go - one bit of fruit with your lunch.

-Thanks very much.

0:10:550:10:59

-Hmm.

-It's not got a maggot in it, if that's what you're thinking.

0:10:590:11:03

Oh, no, I was just thinking.

0:11:030:11:05

What does it remind you of, floating in space?

0:11:050:11:08

-An apple.

-No, it's our very own world.

0:11:080:11:10

-The Blue Planet!

-It's not blue,

0:11:100:11:12

it's a Red Delicious. Anyway, I'm due back at the hospital.

0:11:120:11:17

Make sure you actually eat your Blue Planet, all right?

0:11:170:11:21

Ahh! I hope you are having fun, Rebecca.

0:11:210:11:24

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal

0:11:240:11:27

# Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:11:270:11:30

One beautiful day in Riverseafingal, the sun came out

0:11:310:11:37

and all the little bunny rabbits came out of their burrows.

0:11:370:11:41

They were eating the grass and resting in the sun,

0:11:410:11:45

but all too soon the sun went down and it was night-time.

0:11:450:11:49

What comes out at night-time?

0:11:490:11:52

-The moon.

-The moon!

0:11:520:11:54

-And an owl came flying by. What did the owl say?

-Twit-twoo!

0:11:540:12:00

Good girl! Twit-twoo!

0:12:000:12:03

SCHOOL BELL

0:12:050:12:07

Settle down now.

0:12:100:12:12

Fantastic. This afternoon, I'm going to tell you all about night and day.

0:12:120:12:18

Now, when it gets dark at night,

0:12:180:12:21

we go to bed and animals come out that don't come out in the day,

0:12:210:12:24

like mice, badgers, foxes and owls. Twit-twoo!

0:12:240:12:29

CHILDREN GIGGLE

0:12:290:12:31

Then, in the morning, the birds sing and we all get out of bed.

0:12:310:12:36

There, night and day.

0:12:360:12:37

What is night?

0:12:370:12:39

That's a good question. Night is when it's dark.

0:12:390:12:42

How does it get dark?

0:12:420:12:44

That's a complicated question. We'll need to ask the professor about it.

0:12:440:12:48

How does it get light?

0:12:480:12:51

We'll have to ask the professor about that! Any questions? No? Good.

0:12:510:12:55

Can we ask the professor a question, please?

0:12:550:12:58

Aye...

0:12:580:12:59

I've been working hard preparing my lesson about night and day,

0:12:590:13:04

but when the children ask, "What is night?" and "What is day?",

0:13:040:13:08

I can't think of an easy answer. Where did the time go?

0:13:080:13:11

'At seven o'clock, I dropped Rebecca off at Granny Murray's house.

0:13:110:13:15

'We talked about how the sun changes the colour of the sky

0:13:150:13:19

'and she asked me why it happens.

0:13:190:13:21

'I wasn't sure how to explain so I told her to ask the professor.

0:13:210:13:25

'At eight o'clock, I got to work.

0:13:250:13:27

'I told Kai about the things we learn in class,

0:13:280:13:32

'like about night and day.

0:13:320:13:34

'He asked questions and I wasn't sure how to explain the answer,

0:13:340:13:37

'so I told him to ask the professor.

0:13:370:13:39

'At nine o'clock, my class came in and we learned about the world.

0:13:390:13:43

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

0:13:430:13:46

'Dr Juno came with a fruit trolley and an apple for me.

0:13:460:13:49

'I thought it looked like the world floating in space.

0:13:490:13:53

'At one o'clock, my class came back from lunch.

0:13:530:13:56

'I started to tell them the difference between night and day,

0:13:560:14:00

'but they asked lots of questions. I can't explain them easily.

0:14:000:14:04

'What am I going to do?'

0:14:040:14:06

Now, remember, if you know the answer, you can make it simple.

0:14:060:14:11

If you know the answer, you can make it simple.

0:14:110:14:14

Well, I do know the answer, so I just have to make it simple.

0:14:140:14:18

I've got an idea. It's a race against time.

0:14:180:14:21

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

0:14:210:14:24

# I've got to beat the clock before the chime

0:14:240:14:27

# I've got to sort it I've got to sort it

0:14:270:14:30

# I've got to do the job on time

0:14:300:14:32

# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong

0:14:320:14:34

# I'm going to finish this job before you finish this so-o-o-ong

0:14:340:14:37

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

0:14:370:14:42

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

0:14:420:14:47

# To show his real friends he will get there in the end

0:14:470:14:50

# Cos he knows what he should do and work it through

0:14:500:14:52

-# I'm going to do it

-He's going to do it

0:14:520:14:54

# I'm going to beat the clock before the chime

Now, this is the world,

0:15:080:15:10

and this here is Riverseafingal. That's where we live.

0:15:100:15:15

Can someone spin the world for me? Up you come.

0:15:150:15:17

That's it. Give it a good twirl.

0:15:170:15:20

Now, the world is always spinning, like this.

0:15:200:15:23

Sometimes - stop that there -

0:15:230:15:25

Riverseafingal is facing towards the sun,

0:15:250:15:28

and the sunlight shines down on it, and that's daytime.

0:15:280:15:31

Give it another spin.

0:15:310:15:33

Stop it there.

0:15:330:15:35

And sometimes Riverseafingal is facing away from the sun,

0:15:350:15:40

which means the sunlight can't hit it, and that's night-time, see?

0:15:400:15:44

-Do we all understand the difference between night and day? ALL:

-Yes!

0:15:440:15:49

-Great! So we don't have to ask the professor any more.

-No, we don't.

0:15:490:15:53

I wonder how you're getting on, my little ray of sunshine.

0:15:530:15:58

-Who wants to play the Light and Dark game?

-ALL: Me!

0:16:000:16:04

Me, too. Are you ready to dance about?

0:16:040:16:07

When the music stops, hide under the blankets, OK? Go!

0:16:190:16:22

And start.

0:16:340:16:36

-Looks like you've had a lovely time.

-Thank you, Granny Murray.

0:17:000:17:04

-You're good as gold.

-Thanks from me, too, Your saying -

0:17:040:17:08

if you know the answer, you can make it simple - saved the day.

0:17:080:17:12

I'm glad to hear it. Come on, you two.

0:17:120:17:15

Home, home.

0:17:150:17:17

-Looking forward to next time.

-Me, too!

0:17:200:17:22

Rebecca, let's chat about our time away.

0:17:220:17:25

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

0:17:250:17:29

# Well, there was...

0:17:290:17:32

# Playing, running creeping, jumping

0:17:320:17:34

# Chasing, painting laughing, baking

0:17:340:17:35

# Bathing, dressing singing, swinging

0:17:350:17:36

# Rocking, sliding, hunting, hiding

0:17:360:17:38

# Jumping up and turning round

0:17:380:17:41

# Dressing up and sitting down. #

0:17:410:17:44

But what was really special about today? Well,

0:17:460:17:50

Claude was dressed as a professor because we wondered

0:17:500:17:54

why the sun makes the sky different colours through the day.

0:17:540:17:58

Mickey John couldn't explain,

0:17:580:18:00

so he told us to ask the professor.

0:18:000:18:04

The silly onion!

0:18:040:18:05

I took the children to the park and we found a sundial.

0:18:050:18:09

It's a special clock that tells the time using the sun.

0:18:090:18:13

When we got home, we made night-and-day shadows,

0:18:130:18:17

and I told the children a story.

0:18:170:18:19

Later, we played the Light and Dark game, and hid under blankets.

0:18:190:18:24

I made the rules simple so the children could understand.

0:18:240:18:29

That's just what Mickey John did in his class, too.

0:18:290:18:33

SHE GIGGLES

0:18:330:18:35

I hope you enjoyed yourself.

0:18:350:18:37

Me, too!

0:18:370:18:38

Bye-bye, honey pie!
