DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
Hi, Treasure Champs.
Today's treasure is hard work
and we're hard at work rehearsing for a dance competition.
Well, I am.
I'm rehearsing. Look.
SHE TURNS OFF MUSIC
You need to try harder than that.
What do you mean? I'm practising the left-handed little finger wiggle.
-It's a very tricky move, I'll have you know.
-If you say so.
-I'll do more later.
Come on, Barry, you need to put in some hard work now
so we're good in the competition.
Oh, that was hard work.
# What, what, what, what, what do you think?
# What, what, what, what, what do you say?
What does it mean?
-What do you do...
-# About this treasure?
# It's over to you. #
My mum is a teacher and it's hard work for her
because sometimes the kids are naughty.
I worked really hard at my trampolining
and now I can do backflips and front flips.
I worked very hard for my maths test.
My dad is a chef and he works really, really hard in the kitchen.
So once, when I was learning at home, my eight times table,
at first I was getting them all wrong.
Like for example, eight times six and I just said, "62."
When I keep practising, when I've worked hard one day,
really hard, then I managed to get them all right.
Stand by, the dance competition will now begin.
Dancers, round one.
-Are you ready, Barry?
Get ready to catch me.
ONE PERSON CLAPS
I'm sorry, Kari. I've let you down.
I do need to work hard if we want to do well in this competition.
Oh, thanks, Barry.
Oh, we've still got time to train before round two.
I did it!
Oh, it feels great putting in hard work.
Well done, Barry. Quick!
-It's nearly time for...
We did it!
-Yay! Our hard work paid off.
Let's celebrate by hearing a story about some Treasure Champs
who learnt all about hard work.
Hello, Treasure Champs.
I'm Gemma and this is an old story called The Treasure In The Field.
Once upon a time, there was... a farmer.
The farmer worked very hard.
He dug the soil, he sowed the seeds and he grew amazing
crops which he sold to make money to look after his three children.
But his three children were very lazy and never helped.
One day, the farmer sadly died
but he'd written a message for his children to read.
"I've worked hard for you my whole life and now I'm gone,
"you will have to work hard for yourselves.
"Some days may feel long and you might become tired,
"but I promise you will feel rewarded.
"Although it doesn't look like it, there is
"treasure hidden in the land around you."
Treasure? This sounds like fun!
The children couldn't believe it. They were going to be rich!
They were so excited, they started to dig straightaway.
They dug and they dug, but they couldn't find treasure anywhere.
They didn't give in, though.
They dug all day, they dug all night until they'd dug everywhere!
It was really hard work.
They were so tired and they still hadn't found any riches.
They began to wonder if it was a trick.
Dad definitely said to dig, but we've dug the whole land
and haven't found any treasure.
Well, we've done all the digging. We may as well plant them.
What do you think? Yeah?
So the three children planted the seeds.
After all, it's what their father would've done.
Then many months later, they discovered something amazing.
All our hard work digging has made the crops grow even bigger
-Fruit and veg.
-Fruit and veg.
-Come and get your lovely fruit and veg!
They sold all their crops and made lots of money.
Thank you very much, madam.
They realised that their father had been teaching them
the meaning of hard work.
They'd dug up all the land and their hard work had made them rich.
Now it was hard work telling that treasure story,
but it was worth it.
Thank you both so much for helping me.
It's based on an old fable by a man called Aesop.
-See you soon.
The children were Treasure Champs in the end,
doing all that hard work.
-Do you know one of the best things about hard work?
Afterwards, you deserve a good, long rest.
Let's see you Treasure Champs hard at work.
# How, how, how, how How do you do it?
# How, how, how, how How does it feel?
# How does it look?
# What do you do about this treasure?
# It's over to you. #
HE PLAYS THE UKULELE
Hi, I'm Rex and I've been learning to play the ukulele for two years.
The ukulele is like a small guitar.
It's so much fun to play and it makes a great sound.
-Morning, how are you doing?
-Good to see you.
Today, my ukulele teacher, Mike,
is coming round for a lesson.
Rex, I'm going to teach you a little technique called
the spider and that helps us to get control of each
one of our fingers so we can play a tricky song like this. OK? So...
And that's helping us gain control of our fingers.
So do you want to try that? That one. There you go.
Same on the next string.
Brilliant, excellent, so that's the spider.
Let's try the first section. We'll just do this little bit.
-It's quite tricky, that one.
Let's not try and do it fast just yet.
Let's slow it down and get all the fingers right.
Playing instruments is always tricky to begin with.
But if you put in hard work and
learn the notes, you can make music.
What a great skill to have!
This tune is the hardest one I've learnt so far.
OK, good job, buddy. Good lesson. Give me five.
Now I'm feeling confident,
I'm going to put on a show for my whole family.
I've made a poster ready for my performance.
I hope I remember all of the music.
I'm really happy everyone enjoyed my show.
All of my hard work practising has paid off.
-I'm Ollie and this is my sister, Eve.
-I love raspberries.
Days out with grandma are so much fun.
Today we've come to a fruit farm.
-Hello. Have you come to pick some fruit? ALL:
-At this fruit farm, we're allowed to pick our own fruit.
-We've been given a basket each. We're ready to start picking.
So which ones do we pick, Grandma?
I would look under the leaves
because that's where the big ones are.
-Look at this one, Grandma, this one's quite good.
We can pick as much fruit as we like.
Do you think we've got enough fruit yet?
-Not quite. Let's keep on going.
That looks like hard work.
But they're working hard together.
-Look at how much they've picked.
All that hard work is definitely worth it.
-Let's go and make some ice cream.
-Ice cream time!
First we need to wash our hands and the fruit we've picked.
We're helping grandma turn the fruit into juice.
We then get rid of all the pips and seeds.
Next, we need eggs and sugar.
I'm working really hard to mix this all together.
-Are you ready? Are you going to mix?
We have to put it in the freezer and it might take a while to freeze.
-Yes, it's here. Yay.
All your hard work has paid off.
-Look at that.
Wow! You Treasure Champs really know about hard work.
I loved working hard at my dancing, so I'm going to enter us
into another competition.
-Can you ride a unicycle?
-Can you juggle?
but I'm sure I could if I worked hard.
I like your attitude.
We'd better get practising
because we have a juggling on a unicycle race coming up!
Let's give it a go.
Just going to... Oh!
..take some... Oh! ..practice.
Bye, see you next time.

Kari has been training hard for a dance competition, but Barry hasn't at all. Can some last-minute training make him the perfect partner for Kari's routine?
We meet one Treasure Champ who is working hard to play the ukulele, and another enjoys a day out fruit picking in order to make ice cream.
And storyteller Gemma tells us a story all about finding hidden treasure in a field.
