Mummy, Fudge and me

0:00:450:00:46

are getting ready to go out to play.

0:00:460:00:49

I'm wearing my favourite coat.

0:00:490:00:51

Melody, it's far too cold for that thin jacket.

0:00:510:00:54

But it's my favourite, I love the pretty flowers!

0:00:540:00:57

No, Melody, you've got to wrap up to keep warm.

0:00:570:01:01

The seasons have changed, it's not as warm as it once was.

0:01:010:01:07

This is your summer coat.

0:01:070:01:09

And I agree, it's very pretty, but it's far too thin. Can you feel?

0:01:090:01:14

It DOES feel thin.

0:01:140:01:16

But it's very pretty.

0:01:160:01:18

Now, this is your winter coat.

0:01:180:01:20

It might not be as pretty...

0:01:200:01:23

it's much warmer.

0:01:230:01:25

Can you feel?

0:01:250:01:26

'It's much thicker, and is furry.

0:01:260:01:29

'The fur tickles!'

0:01:290:01:31

Mummy, does everything change when the seasons change?

0:01:310:01:36

Lots of things do. Well, except evergreens.

0:01:360:01:39

They're really special trees that stay green.

0:01:390:01:42

But most trees change colour and lose their leaves in autumn.

0:01:420:01:45

Mummy, do you have any music about the different seasons?

0:01:450:01:49

I think I've got just the thing.

0:01:490:01:51

We can listen to it before we go outside.

0:01:510:01:54

Now, this piece of music is called Autumn,

0:01:540:01:57

and it always makes me think of leaves falling from the trees.

0:01:570:02:01

See what you think.

0:02:010:02:02

It's Autumn, from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi.

0:02:030:02:07

"AUTUMN" PLAYS

0:02:070:02:10

There's a little oak tree dancing!

0:02:120:02:15

He looks very proud of his beautiful green leaves.

0:02:150:02:19

"The weather is changing,

0:02:270:02:29

"and soon all your green leaves will be gone,"

0:02:290:02:34

said the evergreen tree.

0:02:340:02:36

It's getting colder!

0:02:480:02:49

"Ha!" said the oak tree.

0:03:010:03:03

"My leaves have changed from green to red and gold!"

0:03:030:03:08

Meow!

0:03:160:03:17

Whoa!

0:03:280:03:30

Silly Fudge! You knock me off the tree!

0:03:300:03:35

Wow, I'm saved by a falling leaf!

0:03:350:03:38

Lucky me.

0:03:380:03:40

WIND WHISTLES

0:03:430:03:46

A cold wind is blowing really hard.

0:03:520:03:55

Meow!

0:04:280:04:29

The wind keeps blowing, until...

0:04:400:04:43

the last leaf falls from the little oak tree.

0:04:430:04:46

"Oh, dear! All my leaves have fallen to the ground!"

0:04:590:05:03

said the little oak tree.

0:05:030:05:06

"Don't worry, little oak tree," said the evergreen.

0:05:060:05:09

"It will be spring again soon,

0:05:090:05:11

"and you will grow a new coat, as green as can be."

0:05:110:05:15

"Hee-hee-hee!"

0:05:150:05:17

Meow!

0:05:300:05:31

Mmm!

0:05:380:05:39

-Did you like that?

-Yes.

-Right, let's get this summer coat off, then.

0:05:390:05:43

We can pack this away, can't we?

0:05:430:05:45

-For next time.

-Until next summer.

0:05:450:05:48

-Right.

-So, I shouldn't be sad

0:05:480:05:50

that I can't wear my pretty jacket with flowers on,

0:05:500:05:53

because I will be able to wear it again when the weather gets warmer.

0:05:530:05:58

Right, shall we pop your scarf on?

0:05:580:06:00

Let's get you wrapped up nice and warm. You ready?

0:06:000:06:03

Zip!

0:06:030:06:05

Right, lastly, what do we need?

0:06:050:06:07

My hat!

0:06:070:06:09

That Granny knitted.

0:06:090:06:11

There you go.

0:06:110:06:12

Pom-pom!

0:06:120:06:13

What about Fudge? Don't forget Fudge!

0:06:130:06:15

I've got this little scarf for Fudge,

0:06:150:06:18

so he can wrap up warm too.

0:06:180:06:21

'Aww, pretty Fudge!'

0:06:210:06:23

That music made me think of leaves falling from the trees.

0:06:330:06:38

What did it make you think of?

0:06:380:06:41

Melody is getting ready to go out to play. She wants to wear her summer coat, but Mum explains that the seasons have changed and she needs her warmer winter coat. Melody asks Mum for music about different seasons. Mum chooses The Four Seasons - Autumn composed by Vivaldi, and Melody imagines the seasons changing.

After the music finishes, Melody realises she shouldn't be sad at not being able to wear her summer coat because she will be able to wear it again when the weather gets warmer.
