Before you watch
Think about the following questions:
- How many different types of transport can you think of?
- What types of transport have Stephen, Ashley and Jazz been on?
- Can you guess what Ashlie’s surprise is?
Now, watch Stephen, Ashlie and Jazz as they travel around London.
Jazz: Do you know how many different types of transport we have been on today?
Stephen: Well, we arrived on a plane, and then took a train, then a taxi – and now we’re on a boat on the River Thames!
Jazz: Wow - amazing. I didn’t realise people in London travelled around on boats.
Stephen: Well, there’s a lot less traffic on the river and it’s a great way to see the sights.
Stephen: Ah - there’s Ashlie.
Ashlie: Hi guys. Ah, I’m glad to have these back.
Stephen: Well, here we are!
Jazz: Brilliant. Are we going to the London Eye?
Stephen: We are and I’ve got our tickets!
Ashlie: Oh, what a great surprise, Stephen. I’ve always wanted to go on the London Eye!
Stephen: And the view of London from up there is amazing.
Ashlie: Oh, and the weather’s so good, we’ll be able to see loads.
Jazz: Oh, I can’t wait.
Stephen: There you go mate, the Houses of Parliament. There’s Big Ben. Over there is St Paul’s Cathedral.
Jazz: What a view.
Ashlie: Wow this is amazing. The City looks great from up here.
Jazz: That’s a strange building. What is that?
Stephen: Oh, that’s what we call the Gherkin – is one of London’s famous office blocks.
Jazz: Cool. This is fantastic.
Stephen: And there’s one thing we haven’t done today? Here’s something to remind you of your trip to London.
Jazz: Oh, the London Underground. We haven’t been on the London Underground today. Thank you so much, Stephen. I’m never going to forget this day!
Ashlie: Let’s get some food, you guys must be hungry. What do you want to do? Shall we get a takeaway or eat in?
Jazz: Sorry? A take-away or eat in? What do you mean?
Ashlie: Eat in, when we eat in the restaurant or take-away, when we take the food home with us.
Jazz: OK. Let’s get take-away, shall we?
Ashlie: So what do you fancy then, Pizza?
Jazz: Pizza’s good.
Stephen: Yes, pizza sounds good. And I know a great place right near the flat.
Ashlie: Oh no! You guys are never going to believe this… I’ve left my purse on the London eye!
