Hello, children, and welcome to your fifth lesson of the unit with me, Ms. Brittain, and Cedric.

We really hope that you've enjoyed the story so far in the unit, because I know me and Cedric have loved working with you.

Isn't that right, Cedric? Now, in today's.

What's that? Somebody's behind me, Cedric? I can't see anybody.

You must've been seeing things.

So, in today's lesson.

There's somebody behind me? Are you sure, Cedric? I can't see anybody.

Anyway, today's lesson.

Cedric, there's nobody there.

Silly Cedric's been tricking me.

Well, what will we do in today's lesson? So first, like always, we'll start with our nursery rhyme, and then we're going to recap the story with our dance that we learned in the last lesson, and then we're going to do some role play, which means a little bit of acting and drama.

You will need your story map to help us recap the story and the events in there, your super imagination for our role play, and your teddy talk partner.

Now, it's time for our nursery rhyme.

In our last lesson, we learnt the nursery rhyme "Hickory Dickory Dock." So we're going to sing that again, and Cedric is going to be my mouse, aren't you? Okay, you ready? Get your arms ready.

♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ ♪ The mouse ran up the clock ♪ ♪ The clock struck one ♪ ♪ The mouse ran down ♪ ♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ Now, I've been thinking, Cedric, that we could change that song, that nursery rhyme, to fit with our story.

Would you like to hear what I've come up with? ♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ ♪ The farmer pulled the turnip.

♪ ♪ He pulled and pulled ♪ ♪ But the turnip was stuck ♪ ♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ And then who came next, children? Can you tell your screens? It was the wife.

♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ ♪ The wife pulled on the farmer ♪ ♪ They pulled and pulled ♪ ♪ But the turnip was stuck ♪ ♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ And then, who came next? It was Jack, the son.

♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ ♪ Jack pulled on the wife ♪ ♪ They pulled and pulled ♪ ♪ But the turnip was stuck ♪ ♪ Hickory dickory dock ♪ Now, you might want to pause the video here and see if you can sing the rest of the nursery rhyme with your teddy talk partner, thinking about the rest of the characters.

Next, it was Jill, then the sheepdog, then the mouse, and it popped free at the end.

See if you can have a go.

Before we go any further today, children, I want to introduce you to our star words, and these star words all focus on action because that's the building block to story writing that we are focusing on, and it's going to make it really clear what is happening in our story.

So I've got the word pulled.

Can you say pulled? Tumbled.

Can you say tumbled? And chopped.

Can you say chopped? Well done.

Pulled, tumbled, chopped.

And tumble, if you don't know, means fall to the ground in a heap.

So let's see pulled.

Can you show me pulled? Pulled.

Show me tumbled, tumbled.

And, finally, show me chopped, chopped.

And if you want to use your own actions, that's okay too.

First of all, we're going to recap the story really quickly using our song and dance from yesterday.

Okay, so our song started with the farmer planting.

Remember our planting action.

♪ The farmer planted a turnip ♪ ♪ a turnip, a turnip ♪ ♪ The farmer planted a turnip ♪ ♪ And it grew very big ♪ ♪ He pulled at the turnip, heave heave ho ♪ ♪ Heave heave ho, heave heave ho ♪ ♪ He pulled at the turnip, heave heave ho ♪ ♪ But he couldn't pull it up ♪ Can you pause the video here, and with your teddy talk partner, have a go at singing the song with some of the other characters? So the wife, Jack, Jill, the dog, or the mouse.

And then, I'll join you again when the turnip pops free at the end.

Great work if you had a go at that, children.

Let's finish the story off together.

♪ They all pulled the turnip, heave heave ho ♪ ♪ Heave heave ho, heave heave ho ♪ ♪ They all pulled the turnip, heave heave ho ♪ ♪ And the turnip popped free ♪ ♪ The wife chopped the turnip, chop chop chop ♪ ♪ Chop chop chop, chop chop chop ♪ ♪ The wife chopped the turnip, chop chop chop ♪ ♪ And they had it for their tea ♪ For the next section of this lesson, you might want to stand up because we're going to be moving around.

We're going to go into role as the farmer first, and that means we're going to imagine that we are him and pretend.

So let's get ready, like we are the farmer.

Ready to go outside into the field.

Let's put on our dungarees, clip them in.

Let's put on our welly boots.

Whoosh, whoosh.

Let's grab our straw hat, and grab our rake as well, and we're ready to go out into the field.

Let's go! Can you show me you're walking into the field on the mud? Squelch, squelch, squelch, squelch.

Can you make that noise as well, children? Squelch, squelch, squelch.

What actions happen in our story? Let's think about our song and our dance.

Well, there was the planting first, and then there was the waiting, and then there was the head shaking, and there was a lot of pulling and heaving.

And I'd like us to role play when the farmer first tries to pull the giant turnip from the ground, but it will not budge.

So we're going to pull the turnip, and we're going to say, "This turnip is stuck!" Can you say that to your screens, children? Can you say it to your teddy talk partner? This turnip is stuck! And then, he says, he waves, so we can use our action, "Come and help," to his wife.

Can you do that one for me? Come and help! Okay, so you're ready.

We're going to use our pulling action.

Now, you can use this pulling action, or you can heave out of the ground.

I'm going to use this one.

Okay, you ready? I'm getting in position, and I'm pulling.

I'm pulling.

This turnip is stuck! I'm going to wave.

Come and help! Can you pause the video here and have a go at that one? The next section of the story I'd like to role play is when they all work together.

They pull, and they pull, the turnip pops out of the ground, and they tumble to the ground.

And that is one of our key words, tumbled.

So they're all pulling it this time, so we've got to imagine that you're pulling on somebody in front of you.

You grab hold of them, and you pull, and you pull.

And after three pulls, we're going to tumble to the ground after the turnip pops out.

So, are you ready? We're going to say, "Heave ho, heave ho, heave ho," as we pull.

Are you ready, children? You can use your teddy talk partner to grab onto if you like.

Grabbing the person in front of me.

Heave ho, heave ho, heave ho.

And then, pop! Can you have a go at that one again? Heave ho, heave ho, heave ho.

Pop, and tumble to the ground.

You could pause the video here and have another go at that one with your teddy talk partner.

And the final bit of role play I'd like us to do today is when the wife chops up the turnip.

And chopped is one of our star words.

So we're going to role play being the wife in the kitchen, and she chops up the turnip.

She pours it in, and she stirs.

Can you do those three actions for me? Chopped, pour, stir.

And what might the wife say? Hmm.

She might say, "We'll have this turnip for our tea." We pulled the turnip free.

We'll have it for our tea.

We could use that, couldn't we? You might think of something else that you want to say, that the wife might say.

She might shout everybody from the field to come and get their tea.

So are you ready, children? Chop, chop, chop, chop, chop.

Whoosh.

We'll have this turnip for our tea.

Mmm! Delicious! Can you have a go at that with me, children? You ready? Chop, chop, chop, chop, chop.

Whoosh! We'll have this turnip for our tea.

Mmm! Delicious! You could pause the video here and role play with being the wife yourself, or you could even have a go at role playing the other bits from the story.

Maybe you'd like to role play the sheepdog, and when he grabbed onto Jill.

Maybe you'd like to role play the mouse.

What kind of noises and movements would a mouse make? I wonder what it was like for you acting the story out today.

I really enjoyed myself.

Well done if you had a go, and if you didn't, you might want to try it a little bit later on because you can always rewind the video.

How was it for you, Cedric? Did you enjoy it? Cedric enjoyed it.

Cedric would like to see if you can guess which part of the story he is role playing.

Are you ready, children? Hmm, which part could that be? Is it the bit where they all fall down, Cedric? No, try again.

I've got it, is it where the wife chops up the turnip and cooks a turnip stew? Yes.

You might want to have another go at role playing with a parent or a carer.

You could even put on your own show.

If you'd like to, you can ask a parent or carer to share your work because me and Cedric would love to see what you've been doing.

See you next lesson, children.
