Hello there, tiddlers, how are you tiddling?

0:00:510:00:54

Mr Bloom, here.

0:00:540:00:55

Apart from gardening, I like going out and about.

0:00:550:00:58

I like going here and there, doing fun things

0:00:580:01:01

and finding out about new places.

0:01:010:01:03

I've been wondering what you like to do where you live.

0:01:030:01:06

Perhaps you like going to the beach with your family,

0:01:060:01:10

or visiting museums.

0:01:100:01:11

-BEEPING

-It looks like somebody wants to tell me.

0:01:110:01:15

-My name is Findlay.

-And I'm Caitrin.

-We love being here.

0:01:150:01:20

Because our garden is brilliant.

0:01:200:01:23

We planted these salad leaves about six weeks ago.

0:01:260:01:29

And now they're ready to eat.

0:01:290:01:31

They taste great.

0:01:330:01:34

When we planted these radishes they were only tiny,

0:01:380:01:43

and look how big they've grown.

0:01:430:01:47

Our teachers told us that bugs are good for our garden,

0:01:470:01:52

so we built this bug hotel.

0:01:520:01:54

We've got chickens too. This is my favourite. She's called Bella.

0:01:580:02:04

Mr Bloom, this is why we love being here.

0:02:060:02:10

BOTH: We can't wait to show you around!

0:02:100:02:13

Hey, you know what? I'd love to come.

0:02:140:02:18

# Whereabouts will I end up next?

0:02:260:02:29

# Let's put my route-finder To the test!

0:02:300:02:34

# It could be a beach A village or a city

0:02:340:02:37

# Museum or a school A garden so pretty

0:02:370:02:40

# A church or a station A river or a town

0:02:400:02:42

# I just can't wait till You show me around

0:02:420:02:45

# Tiddlers, I'm on my way!

0:02:450:02:48

# So where am I today? #

0:02:480:02:52

-I saw Caitrin look through that square hole.

-Yeah!

0:02:570:03:02

Where shall we put the feed?

0:03:120:03:14

THEY GIGGLE

0:03:180:03:20

They're not over there, they're over here!

0:03:200:03:24

-Hello there, tiddlers!

-Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:03:250:03:29

Thanks for inviting me, Caitrin and Findlay. Who are your friends?

0:03:290:03:34

-I'm Jack.

-I'm Hester.

-I'm George.

0:03:340:03:37

And this is Mrs Richardson. She helps us look after the chickens.

0:03:370:03:41

Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:03:410:03:44

And whose wellies are those?

0:03:440:03:47

Hello, Mr Bloom. I'm Jessica and I'm looking for eggs.

0:03:470:03:51

Hello, Jessica who's looking for eggs!

0:03:510:03:54

It's a lovely place you've got here. Look at these chickens!

0:03:540:03:58

They look very happy to me. And rightly so because look at this.

0:03:580:04:03

-Is this some sort of chicken palace?

-TIDDLERS: No!

0:04:030:04:07

-What is it?

-A chicken coop!

-A chicken coop!

0:04:070:04:11

-CHICKENS CLUCK

-Hey up - what's that sound?

0:04:110:04:16

-It's the ducks, Mr Bloom.

-You've got ducks at your school?

0:04:160:04:22

No wonder you love it here.

0:04:220:04:24

-Shall we visit the duck pond?

-Would you show me?

0:04:240:04:28

-Yes, but you've got to wash your hands yet.

-I see.

0:04:280:04:30

Well, come on, tiddlers, lead on.

0:04:300:04:33

George, you keep an eye on these chickens, all right?

0:04:330:04:37

Let's go.

0:04:370:04:38

The reason Hester and Jack need to wash their hands

0:04:380:04:41

is cos they've been cleaning out the chickens,

0:04:410:04:44

and they might have picked up some germs.

0:04:440:04:47

It's important to wash and dry your hands properly

0:04:470:04:50

when you've been working in the garden.

0:04:500:04:53

There we go, we've got some towels. Grab one of those.

0:04:530:04:57

-All clean and dry?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Right, let's go.

0:05:020:05:05

DUCKS QUACK

0:05:090:05:12

Wow! Look at this!

0:05:150:05:17

I see the grown-ups have been busy, haven't they?

0:05:170:05:21

Here at the tiddlers' school, their mums and dads

0:05:210:05:25

help out with any jobs that are too heavy or need sharp tools.

0:05:250:05:29

They've helped to build a lovely new home for the ducks.

0:05:290:05:34

Are these your school's ducks, Jack?

0:05:340:05:36

Yeah, Mrs Richardson brought some duck eggs in and we put them

0:05:360:05:41

-in an incubator.

-An incubator? You mean like a big warm box?

-Yeah.

0:05:410:05:46

Well, it looks to me like these ducks have grown up, haven't they?

0:05:460:05:50

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-From ducklings to big ducks.

0:05:500:05:53

Are they ready to move into their new house?

0:05:530:05:56

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Shall we help them along?

0:05:560:05:58

-Yeah.

-Come on, ducks, it's moving time.

0:05:580:06:03

DUCKS QUACK

0:06:030:06:05

Come on, duckies!

0:06:090:06:10

Over this way.

0:06:130:06:14

Ha-ha! Here we go. You walk backwards with me.

0:06:140:06:18

Come on, duckies! Come on, duckies!

0:06:180:06:20

This way!

0:06:200:06:22

What are you doing, hanging out with Jack?

0:06:220:06:25

Come in here!

0:06:250:06:27

All right, Jack, can you close the gate? There we go.

0:06:320:06:36

Good job!

0:06:360:06:37

So, Hester, can you tell me, why have you got ducks in your school?

0:06:390:06:43

Because the slugs will eat our vegetables.

0:06:430:06:46

They eat the slugs that eat your vegetables?

0:06:460:06:49

-What type of vegetables do you grow?

-We grow lots of different kinds.

0:06:490:06:54

-Would you be able to show me?

-Yeah!

-Come and see.

0:06:540:06:58

All right then, come on. Bye-bye, ducks.

0:06:580:07:01

QUACK QUACK!

0:07:010:07:03

Hey, tiddlers, this is a nice patch.

0:07:100:07:13

You've got lots going on here. It reminds me of my nursery.

0:07:130:07:17

What types of fruit and vegetable have you got growing here?

0:07:170:07:22

-We've got potatoes and onions.

-That's two.

0:07:220:07:26

-We've got radishes and we've got salad.

-That's four.

0:07:260:07:32

-And strawberries and rhubarb.

-And that's six.

0:07:320:07:38

And my beautiful cabbage.

0:07:380:07:40

Your beautiful cabbage, that's right.

0:07:400:07:42

We've got seven different types of fruit and vegetable.

0:07:420:07:46

My goodness me, it sounds like you've been busy.

0:07:460:07:49

-Did your grown-ups help you?

-Yeah.

0:07:490:07:52

And do you get any help from anyone else, I wonder?

0:07:520:07:56

Yeah, the bugs help the plants to grow.

0:07:560:07:58

That's right. Insects can sometimes be very helpful.

0:07:580:08:02

-BEEPING

-What's this?

0:08:020:08:04

It looks like the route-finder wants to show us some more.

0:08:040:08:09

Look at that!

0:08:090:08:10

There are lots of different creatures

0:08:140:08:16

that can help your garden to grow.

0:08:160:08:19

Flying insects like bees, hover flies and wasps.

0:08:190:08:24

Butterflies - they eat the nectar from the flowers,

0:08:240:08:28

which is like a sugary drink.

0:08:280:08:30

The insects also help the plant by taking pollen from flower to flower.

0:08:360:08:41

Mmm! Pollen is the powdery stuff in the middle

0:08:410:08:45

that makes the flowers and fruit grow.

0:08:450:08:48

There are wiggly worms too.

0:08:480:08:50

They eat old leaves and food scraps and turn them into compost.

0:08:500:08:57

Compost can be spread on the ground.

0:08:570:09:00

It contains lots of goodness, like food for the plants.

0:09:000:09:04

Every creature has a job to do.

0:09:070:09:10

And you can help them by planting flowers for them to feed on.

0:09:110:09:15

Then they'll help your vegetables grow for you to eat.

0:09:150:09:18

What do you do with all the vegetables you grow?

0:09:310:09:34

We eat them.

0:09:340:09:36

-Why do you eat them?

-Cos they're nice.

0:09:360:09:38

-They make you big and strong, don't they?

-Yeah.

0:09:380:09:41

Your grown-ups have been working hard today,

0:09:410:09:44

-haven't they, Jack?

-Yeah.

0:09:440:09:46

I think they might have worked up an appetite.

0:09:460:09:49

Shall we have a garden feast?

0:09:490:09:51

Yeah. ALL: Yeah!

0:09:510:09:54

Well, this looks scrumptious to me. What do you reckon, tiddlers?

0:09:580:10:02

TIDDLERS: Yeah!

0:10:020:10:04

We're just in the nick of time, cos look - here come your grown-ups.

0:10:040:10:08

All right, let's dish them out. Here we go.

0:10:080:10:11

-Some potato salad for you, Dad.

-Thank you.

0:10:110:10:14

And some coleslaw. That's a whacking great portion, that!

0:10:140:10:18

Easy as you go, Hester.

0:10:180:10:20

We've got egg sandwiches made with

0:10:200:10:23

the eggs that came from the chickens,

0:10:230:10:25

as well as potato salad made to the school's special recipe.

0:10:250:10:30

Coleslaw and salad from the garden.

0:10:300:10:33

Right, there we go.

0:10:330:10:36

Is this one for Findlay? Go on, then.

0:10:370:10:40

Do you want some coleslaw as well? I'll give you this.

0:10:400:10:44

There we go.

0:10:440:10:47

-Do you want some potato salad?

-Yeah.

0:10:470:10:50

Have you guys got sandwiches as well?

0:10:500:10:52

-Yes, I want a sandwich, I want a sandwich!

-Please!

0:10:520:10:56

This one's for me. Off we go.

0:10:560:11:01

Tiddlers, I can see why you love where you live

0:11:010:11:04

cos look at this garden - it's lovely, isn't it? Yeah?

0:11:040:11:08

The egg sandwiches, those eggs were laid by your chickens,

0:11:080:11:12

and the salad and the coleslaw are the vegetables you grew.

0:11:120:11:16

Caitrin and Findlay, thank you for inviting me here today.

0:11:160:11:20

I've had a cracking time,

0:11:200:11:21

and I won't be going away on an empty tummy.

0:11:210:11:24

Why don't you join me soon when I'll be...

0:11:240:11:27

ALL: Here And There!

0:11:270:11:29

-Bye-bye!

-ALL: Bye!

0:11:290:11:32

# Where is it you like to go? Call me up and let me know

0:11:320:11:37

# What is it you like to do? I'll pop along and do it too

0:11:370:11:41
