What are you going to do, Alvin?

ALVIN: Tower Bridge is the most famous bridge in London.
Let's go there.
SHARI: How do we get there?
ALVIN: Let's look at the map ... Now, we're outside the station. That's here.
DAN: We have to go straight along this road. We don't go across the river. We turn left here. ...
DAN: OK, now we're at a corner. Do we want to go left or right, Alvin?
ALVIN: Er, I don't know. I think we take the third street on the right, then walk past this park.
SHARI: Er, boys ... turn the map round! We're going in the wrong direction!
SHARI: Excuse me. Can you tell us how to get to Tower Bridge, please?
WOMAN: Look, dear. It's just across the street. It's behind you.

ALVIN: Now we've got a great project for our ezine ... Disasters!
SHARI and DAN: Yeah!
REPORTER: Well, hello, children. Are you getting warm?
SHARI, DAN AND ALVIN: Yes!
REPORTER: Can you tell me what happened?
SHARI: It was hot and sunny this morning, so we decided to sail to the small island for a picnic with my dad.
ALVIN: When we were sailing to the island, the sky went dark.
REPORTER: Were you listening to the weather on the radio?
DAN: The radio was on, but we weren't listening to the weather. We were listening to music.
REPORTER: Why didn't you go back to the beach?
DAN: Because we were very near the island. We decided to wait there for the weather to get better ... but it didn't. A storm started.
SHARI: We were walking up the beach, looking for somewhere safe to stay, when lightning hit the boat and it caught fire.
REPORTER: What a disaster!
SHARI: We couldn't leave the island, so Dad had to phone for help.
ALVIN: At first the phone didn't work. But then he tried again and it was OK. Phew!
REPORTER: Were you afraid?
SHARI, DAN AND ALVIN: Yes!
DAN: But it was really exciting when the helicopter came to get us.
SHARI AND ALVIN: Yeah, that was great!

DAN: Ahah! Do you like my new teeth?
SHARI: Ugh. They're horrible. What are they made of?
ALVIN: Ha ha! They're made of sugar. They're great. Nice one, Dan!
DAN: Hee hee hee.
SHARI: Ooh, look! These snakes are made of rubber. They're fantastic!
ALVIN: Yeah! Ooh, I'm going to buy one of these spiders. They're made of fur.
DAN: Really? I don't think anybody's going to be afraid of those.
SHARI: Ah! Look out, Dan!
00:01:18:39 00:01:21:26 There's a big black spider on your shoulder!
DAN: No, there isn't.

(SHARI: Yeah, I thought so too.)
TEACHER: In this week's science club we're going to look at the five senses. First we're going to look at the sense of touch.
SHARI: Put your hand into this box, Dan. What does it feel like?
DAN: It's very soft. It feels like fur. Is it an animal?
ALVIN: No, Dan. It's my toy spider.
DAN: Not again!
ALVIN AND SHARI: Ha, ha, ha!
SHARI: I didn't know we had to do the sense of hearing too.
ALVIN: That's horrible! It sounds like somebody falling downstairs.
TEACHER: That's my new CD.
DAN: That's cool!
ALVIN AND SHARI: Dan!
TEACHER: Now we're exploring the sense of smell. What does this smell like, Shari?
SHARI: Phoargh! That smells terrible! It smells like Alvin's socks.
ALVIN: Well, it's strong blue cheese, Shari.
TEACHER: And now the sense of taste. What does this taste like, Alvin?
ALVIN: Mmm. It ... it tastes like pizza. It's great! I didn't think I liked pizza.

DAN: This is great!A day in the country!
ALVIN: Yeah, but we've only got two more days to write our next ezine project and we haven't got a topic. What shall we write about?
SHARI: I don't know, but it's very hot, so we should put our hats on.
DAN: Phew! You're right. The sun is strong. I think we should put some sun cream on, too. Here you are.
SHARI: Thanks, Dan. Do you want some, Alvin?
ALVIN: Er. Eh? Look! What's that man doing? Let's go and see ...
ALVIN: Excuse me. Can you tell me what you're doing?
MAN: Sure. I'm taking the glass bottles and plastic bags out of the lake because they're dangerous for wild birds. I have to do this every week.
DAN: That's terrible! People should put their rubbish in the bins. They shouldn't leave it on the grass or throw it in the lake.
SHARI: What should we do about this? Can we do anything to help?
MAN: Well, most people don't know that this is a big problem for birds and other animals, so you should tell your friends and family about it.
ALVIN: Yeah. We should write about it in the ezine.
DAN: Come on! We've got a job to do.
