Cue: INTRODUCTORY MUSIC
Stephen Nolan: Welcome to the new game show “ It’s Childs’ play” where two teams of PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS are asked to plan a project. The PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS are given an opportunity to ask questions and are then asked to identify the key factors which will ensure success. The teams reveal their conclusions and if they match the factors revealed by “Mr Oh! No!” they are awarded points. The more points they score, the more prizes they win for their school.
Stephen Nolan: Quite simply we present two teams of PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS with a real life situation and say “You’re in charge, you’re the adults TAKE IT AWAY ……….…..”
Stephen Nolan: Introduces team 1 Reginald, David, and Basil and team 2 Peter, Nigel and Arlene. Now team 1 won the toss and go first.
Stephen Nolan: So, you are the parents of a family who are going on holiday for the first time. You have one minute to ask me any question you like before we plan the project. What would you like to ask me? TAKE IT AWAY.
Reginald: How will we get there?
Stephen Nolan: Entirely up to you
David: How many kids have we got
Stephen Nolan: Lets say three, one of each, a boy, a girl and a baby
Basil: What time of year is it?
Stephen Nolan: “Summertime, when the living is easy….”
David: Can we afford the holiday
Stephen Nolan: Yes, all paid for in advance
Reginald: When can we go?
Stephen Nolan: Right now, Time’s up. On to the next stage
Stephen Nolan: My question is quite simply “what should you take into account to increase the chances of a happy and carefree holiday?” But first choose one of the following categories. The categories are: 1 Before you leave; 2 Transport; 3 Documentation and 4 Destination.
Reginald: Category 1 please
Stephen Nolan: So Team 1 have chosen “Before you leave” You have one minute to plan.
Cameras: FOCUS ON EASELS AND FLIP CHARTS AND THE CHILDRENS’ DISCUSSIONS AND VIEWERS LISTEN IN.
Stephen Nolan: OK time’s up. What have you got for me, team 1 on category 1.
Reginald: Well, we have to pack, pack everything we need. We have to turn off the lights, turn off the telly, turn off everything, close all the windows, tell the neighbours.
Stephen Nolan: Any more?
Basil : Have to remember to cancel the papers and the milk.
Stephen Nolan: Any more? MiaaaaaaaooooooW
David: Oh yes, put the cat and dog in the kennels
Stephen Nolan: OK time’s up and let’s hand over to Mr Oh!No!
Mr Oh!No!: Well I think they had that pretty well covered there apart from poor puss and Team 1 was on the right lines in that they wanted to take with them what was necessary for their holiday and wanted to ensure what they left behind was there when they came back.
Mr Oh!No!: But Oh!No! there’s one big flaw! There’s something fundamental missing
Stephen Nolan: Over to you Team 2. Can you supply the missing link?
Peter: They don’t know where they’re going. If they have no strategy and don’t know where they’re going, how can they pack the right clothes, take sun block or brollies, book a plane or a train. It’s fundamental.
Stephen Nolan: What do you think Mr Oh!No!
Mr Oh!No!: Quite right and so its three points to Team 1 but five points to Team 2.
Stephen Nolan: Right now we’ll take a break and be back in a couple of moments with “IT’S CHILDS’ PLAY”, the brand new game show for PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILDREN.
Cue: NATURAL BREAK
