This is Eiliah,
and she is four years old.
Oh, let's go to the park.
Eiliah loves playing in the park with her grandma.
Your balance, do your balance. Your hands, in the air.
You're good on the balance bar.
Walking, walking, walking... Jump! Oh, very good!
The slide looks fun.
There you go. You're going to do the climbing through?
Today, Eiliah is going to do something new for the first time.
But what will it be?
This is Eiliah's memory box.
It helps her remember all the exciting things that have happened.
See if you can remember what goes in it today.
-You must hold on.
Grandma has something to ask Eiliah.
Do you want to go to the seaside?
That sounds like great fun!
Many people like to go to the seaside for a day out,
as there are lots of things to see and do.
A beach is an area of sand or pebbles next to the water.
It's often called the seaside because it's next to the sea.
Lots of people like to go to the seaside and have fun,
paddling in the water or building sand castles.
Eiliah and Grandma have come to catch an old tram
to take them to the seaside.
Uh-oh. Upstairs, upstairs, upstairs! Whee!
The driver takes off the brake,
starts the engine,
and off goes the tram.
What do you think we should do in the beach?
-Build a sandcastle.
And go splashing in the water.
Look at the side, by the seaside.
Ew, it's starting to rain.
It's raining, so the driver switches on the wipers.
It's like a...
..a car wash.
It is like a car wash!
The rain is really pouring down!
-Shall we sing this song?
You sing it, then.
# Rain, rain, go away
# Come again another day
# Rain, rain, go away
# Come again another day. #
The tram has arrived at the beach.
We're coming off now.
Oh, good, the rain has stopped. It looks like your song worked.
The first thing to go into Eiliah's memory box is the tram.
Oh, good! The sun has come out.
Eiliah and Grandma are going to go to the top of the tower
to get a good view of the seaside.
We're going to see the tower. We're walking to the lift.
We're going to level five,
to see the top of the tower.
All the way up. There you go.
Can you see the sea?
Yeah, I can see the sea.
And what else?
Everything is so small!
Now, I can see the road.
You can see the road?
And this side, look at this side.
It's like being up in an aeroplane.
Ooh, we've stopped.
We're at the top of the tower.
You're a long way up. I wonder what you'll see.
Ooh! What's that, Eiliah?
A glass floor?!
-Can you see the people walking?
-Can you see the cars?
Do you like the tower?
The people look like tiny ants.
Yeah, go on.
You go on the glass and touch the other side.
You're very brave, Eiliah.
Are you not scared?
It's a lovely view of the sea.
Look, look, look!
Now the sun has come out, it's time to go down again
so you can go to the beach.
The second thing in the memory box is the tower.
Eiliah, we're going to the sunny beach.
You need a bucket.
Which colour do you want?
-Yellow, OK. Pick the bucket up.
And let's go and pay for it.
That's a nice colour.
Thank you very much.
-Here's your change.
Come on, Eiliah.
At last, we are off to the beach. Look at all that sand!
-Hurry up, Grandma, hurry up.
-Jump, jump, jump, jump!
Now can I take off my shoes?
Yeah, you can take off your shoes now.
OK, come on.
Come on, let's go and set up here.
Now we need some sand.
Yeah, we need some sand.
Look - that blanket's flapping in the wind!
I'll leave these.
Put your bucket down and hold it.
Put it down, put it down.
Aw, Eiliah, you're good at helping.
OK, we're going to sit down and we'll build the sandcastle.
There's a seagull having a paddle in the water.
Shall you have a paddle, as well?
Can we go in?
-You go in and see whether the water is cold.
-Is the water cold?
It's fine if it's cold.
-You're just a bit cold?
-Don't go over there.
-Ooh, it's cold.
Grandma doesn't like the cold water.
What will you do now?
We need to make sand castles.
Do you want me to help you?
-I'm up to the top already.
Have to pat it.
Tip it over quickly.
Shall we take it out?
-Go on, then.
-You had that one.
I need to get some water.
What are you doing with the water?
Put the water here, and then we build the sandcastle.
It's a river around the sandcastle!
-It's like a river!
-Yeah, like a river. Now, put it here.
Brilliant. Three sand castles! What's next?
Eiliah, what are you doing?
Is Eiliah burying my feet in the sand?
Put more here, more here.
Are you burying Grandma's feet?
-What are you doing?
-Patting your feet.
OK. With what?
-Oh, all right.
-Can I jump out?
The third thing into the memory box is the sandcastle.
The tide has come in, so Grandma has taken Eiliah to a shop.
Oh, look. Postcards.
Do you want to choose one for Mummy?
Which one do you want?
Spin them around.
Which one would Mummy like?
Let's go and pay for it.
I got a postcard for Mummy.
-How much is it?
That's 30p, that is.
-There you go. Thank you.
Let's go and find a place to sit and write it out.
What should you write to Mummy?
All the round circles and a heart, for Mummy, and the sunglasses.
Now we're finished, let's go and post it.
Oh, look. That's a postbox.
OK, let me lift you up.
That goes to Mummy.
Where are you going now?
The pier?! That looks fun.
A pier is a walkway which stretches out into the sea.
You can go for a walk along the pier
and sometimes they're used by boats to land at.
The North Pier is over 150 years old,
and has fun attractions for people to enjoy.
Can you see the waves?
Grandma, they're fast.
Grandma, Eiliah, chase... Chase, chase!
Let's play a game of chase.
You can't catch me!
Catch. Catch, catch, catch, catch.
Eiliah's catching up.
Oh, well dodged, Grandma.
Go on, go on, go on, go on.
All this running around is making you hot.
-Please, can I have an ice lolly?
Lick it, lick it.
What colours are they?
The fourth thing into the memory box is the pier.
Have you had a good day?
What a good day at the seaside.
What a great day, Eiliah.
But now it's time for home.
Today, Eiliah went to the seaside.
Do you remember what happened?
Let's have a look in the memory box.
First, Eiliah went on a tram ride to the seaside.
Then, she went up the tower.
Next, she headed to the beach and built some sandcastles.
And, finally, she sent Mum a postcard
and walked along the pier.
Today, Eiliah went to the seaside.
There's a first time for everything.
Join Eiliyah and her grandma as they take their first trip to the seaside.
First Eiliyah gets on an old tram that takes her along the seafront where they spot a large tower. Eiliyah and her grandma climb the tower and can see the beach below. They then go on to the beach to build a sandcastle and paddle in the water.
As Eiliyah is having such a great time, she sends her mum a postcard telling her about her exciting day. Finally Eiliyah enjoys playing on the pier and ends her trip with an ice cream.
