Let's go!

0:00:540:00:55

Today, musical Let's Goers Emily and Davey have a go at songwriting.

0:00:550:00:59

We'll be learning a silent super-skill - mime.

0:00:590:01:02

I might find it tricky.

0:01:020:01:04

We've got some fantastic facts for you all about transport.

0:01:040:01:08

Beep-beep!

0:01:080:01:09

And make sure you stick around to learn the crisscross cool move,

0:01:090:01:14

ready for the club dance.

0:01:140:01:15

# Get ready, get set at The Let's Go Club

0:01:270:01:29

# We've got a lot of things going on at The Let's Go Club. #

0:01:290:01:35

Let's go!

0:01:350:01:36

I'm Emily. I'm Davey.

0:01:420:01:43

And we both like... TOGETHER: ..to sing!

0:01:430:01:46

Today, we're going to write a song of our own.

0:01:460:01:50

BOTH: Let's go!

0:01:500:01:51

This is Kate, she's written lots of songs,

0:01:510:01:54

including this one you might recognise.

0:01:540:01:57

# Let's go!

0:01:570:01:59

# The Let's Go Club. #

0:01:590:02:01

So Kate's the perfect person to help us write a song of our own.

0:02:010:02:05

# Let's go! #

0:02:050:02:07

Hello, Davey. Hello, Emily. TOGETHER: Hello, Kate.

0:02:070:02:11

What is the first thing you need to do when you write a song?

0:02:110:02:15

Well, the very first thing you need is a melody.

0:02:150:02:18

What is a melody?

0:02:180:02:19

Well, the melody is the bit that you find yourself humming all the time.

0:02:190:02:24

It's the tune of the song.

0:02:240:02:26

How can we find a melody for our song?

0:02:260:02:28

Well, the ideas for a melody can come from anywhere.

0:02:280:02:31

You might be inspired by a person or a place that you visit.

0:02:310:02:35

I know a really good place that we can go and find some inspiration.

0:02:350:02:39

Let's go!

0:02:390:02:41

Kate is taking us to a forest.

0:02:410:02:43

There are lots of things to see and hear.

0:02:430:02:46

Lots of things to inspire our song.

0:02:460:02:49

We need to be thinking about melodies, so what can we hear?

0:02:490:02:52

Emily? Birds.

0:02:520:02:54

So, let's listen to the birds.

0:02:540:02:57

BIRDSONG Oh, listen to that bird there.

0:02:570:03:00

It went... SHE IMITATES A BIRD

0:03:000:03:02

Can you do that? BOTH: Do-do-do-do-do!

0:03:020:03:05

We should have a bit of that, couldn't we?

0:03:050:03:07

What do you think? That sounds great.

0:03:070:03:09

The birds are making high, low and repeated sounds.

0:03:090:03:13

So we're going to pull them all together and create our melody.

0:03:130:03:18

So, now, we've got to think of some words for our song.

0:03:180:03:21

I think I've got some. Have you? OK. Well, these words are called lyrics

0:03:210:03:25

so what lyrics can we have for our song?

0:03:250:03:28

# The trees are blowing and the birds are singing. #

0:03:280:03:31

Brilliant, I love that. What about you, Davey?

0:03:310:03:34

# The mud is splashing... # Yup.

0:03:340:03:36

# And the ponds are streaming

0:03:360:03:38

# The mud is icky, sticky and squishy. #

0:03:380:03:41

Oh, yes.

0:03:410:03:42

We've been doing a lot of walking today, haven't we? Yeah.

0:03:490:03:53

Have you noticed it's like a march so you...? Like this. Yeah.

0:03:530:03:57

Can you march like this?

0:03:570:03:59

What words do you think we might be able to use, Emily?

0:03:590:04:02

Probably woodland walking!

0:04:020:04:04

# Woodland walking Woodland walking

0:04:050:04:08

# Woodland walking! Woodland walking

0:04:080:04:12

# Woodland walking... #

0:04:120:04:14

'Back at Kate's studio, we're finding rhythm for our songs.'

0:04:140:04:19

Why does our song need a rhythm?

0:04:190:04:22

Well, the rhythm is there to drive the song along

0:04:220:04:25

and some rhythms can be fast and some rhythms can be slow.

0:04:250:04:29

We need to see which one will fit your song the best.

0:04:290:04:32

So here's a fast one.

0:04:320:04:34

And here's a slower one.

0:04:400:04:41

Which one do you think works best? Fast. Do you think so? Yeah.

0:04:490:04:53

What do you think? Yeah, we think the fast.

0:04:530:04:55

Now we've found the rhythm, can we make the music? Absolutely.

0:04:550:04:59

'I'm playing a stirring drum.'

0:05:030:05:06

'And I'm playing the tambourine.

0:05:060:05:09

'We've made the music for our song.'

0:05:090:05:12

'So now it's time to record the lyrics.'

0:05:120:05:15

# Woodland walking... #

0:05:150:05:18

Yeah.

0:05:180:05:19

# Woodland walking! #

0:05:190:05:22

Fantastic work -

0:05:220:05:23

you guys have written and recorded your own song.

0:05:230:05:27

Shall we have a listen? Yes!

0:05:270:05:29

# The trees are blowing and the birds are singing

0:05:290:05:33

# The mud is splashy and it's squelching and squishing

0:05:370:05:41

# Woodland walking! #

0:05:450:05:48

The Let's Go Club.

0:05:530:05:55

Let's go.

0:05:550:05:57

What a catchy song and for more Woodland Walking,

0:05:570:06:00

head over to the CBeebies website,

0:06:000:06:02

Emily and Davey have made a great video for you guys to check out.

0:06:020:06:06

Let's Goers, it's time to welcome our silent super skiller

0:06:060:06:10

to the clubhouse, Les Bubb, take it away!

0:06:100:06:14

Yeah! Yeah! Whoo! Come on, guys. Let's go and meet Les.

0:06:560:07:00

You guys go first. Hello. Can you teach us how to mime?

0:07:000:07:04

Sure! All it takes is a little bit of practice.

0:07:040:07:07

Tell you what, take a balloon from this box. Take a small one.

0:07:070:07:10

Now, hold them over your blue circle,

0:07:100:07:13

there's a blue circle in front of you.

0:07:130:07:15

Now, what we are going to try and do is move your body

0:07:150:07:19

whilst holding the balloons still.

0:07:190:07:22

How much can you move?

0:07:220:07:23

You can move all the way in, you can move all the way out,

0:07:230:07:27

you can go to the side. Wow.

0:07:270:07:29

The next thing is to put some effort into it.

0:07:290:07:33

Now, have one foot behind the other like that

0:07:330:07:36

and when you push, you tense your muscles

0:07:360:07:38

and your muscles and your face...

0:07:380:07:42

Push! And it's the same for pulling.

0:07:420:07:45

You tense when you're pulling...

0:07:450:07:47

and relax when you're not.

0:07:470:07:49

Looking good. Have you got any more tips?

0:07:490:07:51

There's one magic tip.

0:07:510:07:53

Have one foot behind the other, when you're pushing,

0:07:530:07:56

move all your weight onto the front foot

0:07:560:07:59

so there's nothing in the back foot. You can lift it up.

0:07:590:08:02

Yes! Now you're putting all the effort...

0:08:020:08:05

Yes. Look at the effort these guys are making,

0:08:050:08:08

fantastic. Excellent! They're pulling too.

0:08:080:08:11

When you pull, straighten your arms.

0:08:110:08:14

That's it, have all the weight on this foot and none on that one.

0:08:140:08:17

Oh, I like this one.

0:08:170:08:19

That's it.

0:08:190:08:21

Once more. Push, effort, relax.

0:08:210:08:25

And pull, effort, relax.

0:08:250:08:28

Guess what, guys?

0:08:280:08:29

You're now all super skilled mime artists. Take a bow.

0:08:290:08:33

Whoo! Ta-da! Well done, well done.

0:08:330:08:35

And you guys can have a go too!

0:08:350:08:38

Les, can you show me how? Oh, sure.

0:08:380:08:41

Oh, guys, can you see what he's doing? Look.

0:08:440:08:47

ALL: He's going to the CBeebies website.

0:08:470:08:52

You got it, you can go to the CBeebies website

0:08:520:08:54

to see more of this super skill

0:08:540:08:56

and learn more about the amazing Les Bubb.

0:08:560:08:59

All right, guys, shall we have a little look at the send-ins? Yes!

0:08:590:09:04

Well, we've got a thumbs up from Les.

0:09:040:09:06

Let's see what you've been doing.

0:09:060:09:09

The Let's Go Club.

0:09:090:09:11

Let's go!

0:09:110:09:12

This week, lots of you Let's Goers have tried our squirty chalk.

0:09:120:09:17

Max has chalked his name.

0:09:170:09:19

Fizzing fun!

0:09:190:09:20

Jasmine and Bob have squirted a flower picture.

0:09:200:09:23

Petal power.

0:09:230:09:24

And Grace has made some pink squirty chalk.

0:09:240:09:28

Fizz-tastic!

0:09:280:09:30

Let's Goer Ieuan has pet African land snails.

0:09:300:09:33

Wow!

0:09:330:09:35

And he made this brilliant poster to tell his friends all about them.

0:09:350:09:39

This is arty Lottie,

0:09:390:09:42

she made gift boxes for her friends to say well done on starting school.

0:09:420:09:47

Let's Goer Justin drew this picture of London town.

0:09:470:09:50

It looks great!

0:09:500:09:52

Chloe is very excited about the Let's Go wristband she's made.

0:09:520:09:57

Welcome to the club, Chloe.

0:09:570:09:59

And creative Macy made a marvellous memory box

0:09:590:10:03

after seeing it on The Let's Go Club.

0:10:030:10:05

Beautiful!

0:10:050:10:07

Those were super send-ins.

0:10:070:10:09

We're now going to have a go at some miming,

0:10:090:10:12

so, Lily, why don't you go first?

0:10:120:10:14

What do you think she's doing, Jessica? Cycling.

0:10:140:10:17

She's cycling, isn't she? That was good guessing. OK, your turn.

0:10:170:10:21

Can you guess? What's she doing, Lily?

0:10:220:10:25

Playing football. She's playing football.

0:10:250:10:28

Oh, and what do you think Les is driving?

0:10:280:10:31

BOTH: A bus! Shall we hop on? Yes! All aboard!

0:10:310:10:35

Fact fans, today we're finding out all about transport.

0:10:440:10:49

Buses moving,

0:10:490:10:51

ships cruising,

0:10:510:10:53

chuffing trains,

0:10:530:10:55

jumbo planes,

0:10:550:10:56

walk to places,

0:10:560:10:58

speedy skaters,

0:10:580:11:00

helicopters hovering

0:11:000:11:01

and motor cars motoring.

0:11:010:11:03

Strap yourself in and let's get to those facts.

0:11:030:11:07

First up, traffic lights were used before cars were even invented.

0:11:070:11:11

Let's shed more light on this.

0:11:110:11:15

The first traffic light was used outside the Houses of Parliament

0:11:150:11:19

in London to tell horse-drawn carriages when to stop and to go.

0:11:190:11:23

The only problem was that the light was powered by gas

0:11:230:11:26

and eventually...

0:11:260:11:28

it exploded!

0:11:280:11:29

Wow, that fact just BLEW my mind.

0:11:290:11:34

Next, there's a type of mosquito

0:11:340:11:36

that lives in the London Underground.

0:11:360:11:38

I think we need to dig deeper.

0:11:380:11:41

The mosquitoes have set up home in the busy train tunnels

0:11:410:11:45

because they like the warm and damp conditions underground.

0:11:450:11:48

But mosquitoes aren't the only animals that call the Tube

0:11:480:11:52

home sweet home. Mice, foxes and even tortoises

0:11:520:11:56

are all deep down neighbours.

0:11:560:11:58

It's hard to keep track of all those animals.

0:11:580:12:02

All aboard!

0:12:020:12:04

Next up, fact number three.

0:12:040:12:06

The first explorers to travel by hot-air balloon were a sheep,

0:12:060:12:10

a cockerel and a duck.

0:12:100:12:13

No, I'm not quackers!

0:12:130:12:15

This brave bunch went up, up and away in a balloon test flight

0:12:150:12:20

that lasted ten minutes.

0:12:200:12:22

A duck was chosen because it was used to flying high,

0:12:220:12:26

a cockerel because it couldn't fly away

0:12:260:12:28

and a sheep because it was the most like a person.

0:12:280:12:32

Now, that's un-BAA-lievable.

0:12:320:12:36

And finally, there was once a traffic jam so long

0:12:360:12:40

that people were stuck in it for 12 days.

0:12:400:12:43

Now, that's a hold-up you'd want to STEER clear of.

0:12:430:12:47

This bumper-to-bumper gridlock happened in China

0:12:470:12:51

because there were too many roadworks and lots of cars

0:12:510:12:54

and lorries breaking down.

0:12:540:12:56

People who lived nearby helped the stranded drivers

0:12:560:12:59

by selling them food and drinks, a do-it-yourself drive-thru!

0:12:590:13:03

I wonder if they sold TRAFFIC JAM sandwiches.

0:13:030:13:06

Facts!

0:13:060:13:07

The Let's Go Club.

0:13:090:13:10

Let's Go!

0:13:100:13:12

Wow, what fab facts!

0:13:120:13:15

Before today's cool move, let's take a look at some of your send-ins.

0:13:150:13:20

Adventurous Let's Goer Edward

0:13:200:13:23

definitely had a head for heights when he tried out climbing.

0:13:230:13:27

Alexa's sunflower also likes to be up high, it's humongous.

0:13:270:13:32

Great growing, Alexa.

0:13:320:13:35

More green-fingered growing from Iris

0:13:350:13:37

who's collecting the seeds from her sunflower, ready to plant next year.

0:13:370:13:42

Hannah and Harris celebrated Eid al-Adha in their special clothes.

0:13:420:13:46

You two look great.

0:13:460:13:49

This is Evie who made this picture using shells and seaweed.

0:13:490:13:53

I WHALE-y love it.

0:13:530:13:56

Here's Orla trying out some handclapping.

0:13:560:14:00

SHE CLAPS You've got rhythm.

0:14:000:14:02

Meet musical Let's Goer, Aaron.

0:14:020:14:05

He's singing his very own song. # Let's go! #

0:14:050:14:08

And here's Yusita, who has made her own microphone.

0:14:080:14:11

# The Let's Go Club! # CHILDREN: Let's go!

0:14:140:14:18

You know what? Your send-ins make me want to dance.

0:14:180:14:21

So I'm going to show you today's cool move - the crisscross!

0:14:210:14:24

And here's how you do it. Your first step is

0:14:240:14:27

to cross our legs, and our arms,

0:14:270:14:30

and lean to one side.

0:14:300:14:31

Then we uncross them

0:14:310:14:33

and boogie for two beats. Three, four.

0:14:330:14:37

Then we cross our legs and arms and lean to the other side

0:14:370:14:41

and then uncross them and dance for two beats. Three, four.

0:14:410:14:46

Criss...cross, three, four.

0:14:460:14:49

Criss...cross, three, four!

0:14:490:14:52

If you find you're starting to master this move,

0:14:520:14:55

what you can do is, when you criss, and then uncross them, you can turn.

0:14:550:15:02

Criss...cross, three, four.

0:15:020:15:05

Criss...cross, three, four.

0:15:050:15:08

Criss...cross, three, four.

0:15:080:15:10

0:15:310:15:35

I'm Harriet. These are my friends Matilda, Seb, Jake and Hannah.

0:15:350:15:41

We really like playing music.

0:15:410:15:44

So we've made instruments out of things we found.

0:15:440:15:48

If you like music, here's something you can do.

0:15:480:15:51

We're going to make a band, but need a few more instruments.

0:15:510:15:55

Let's get making!

0:15:550:15:57

We're making castanets with buttons and cardboard.

0:15:570:16:00

They make a noise like this. CLICKING

0:16:030:16:06

I found a hose and a funnel to make a trumpet.

0:16:070:16:10

We're using empty water bottles to make maracas with beads and buttons.

0:16:120:16:18

RATTLING

0:16:250:16:27

This pot will make a great drum.

0:16:300:16:33

We can use wooden spoons for drumsticks.

0:16:330:16:35

We're The Found Things!

0:16:350:16:37

Hit it!

0:16:370:16:38

A-one, a-two, a-one, two, three, four!

RHYTHMIC PLAYING

ALL: Hurrah!

0:16:570:17:00

0:17:000:17:02

We like making music, so we did this.

Don't forget to listen to this week's Let's Go Radio Club.

0:18:480:18:51

Lizzie will take over the microphone

0:18:510:18:54

and she'll play the Woodlands Walking song again.

0:18:540:18:57

Go to the CBeebies website and click on radio.

0:18:570:19:00

And remember, we're the club that never closes.

0:19:000:19:03

CHILDREN: Let's go!

0:19:070:19:10

The clubhouse sings out loud and enjoys complete silence!

Let's Goers Emily and Davey have a go at songwriting - with a walk in the woods for inspiration. Martin meets amazing mime artist Les Bubb to learn how to do this silent Super Skill. And we get motoring with some fun-tastic facts all about transport - beep beep!

Abe hops, steps and jumps his way through another Cool Move - the Criss Cross. There are super Send-Ins from CBeebies viewers, showing the clubhouse crew what they've been doing. And Let's Goer Matilda and her friends get together to form a band - making musical instruments from objects they've found around the house.

Plus everyone's favourite singing and dancing with the Get Set, Let's Go! song, and the superfunky Club Dance.
