  Children... pay attention, please. Free time is over, so put away your things and we are going to tell our nice story, so come over here and make a circle on the floor all around me, and we'll tell the story together. We've got a visitor today, so we can tell our story to her.
Will you be all right there, Mrs Binton? I think you'll get a good view of the proceedings.
Hurry up everybody. Don't push - there's lots of room for us all.
This group story-telling is quite a feature of our work here in the Nursery School, Mrs Binton. We like to feel that each little individual has a contribution to make to the world of make-believe, and of course many valuable lessons can be learned from team work. We're a happy band of brothers here!
Edgar, let go of Timmy's ear and settle down.
Come along, everybody.
Sidney, come out from under the table and join in the fun.
No, you're not in a space rocket.
You can't wait for the count-down, you come out now.
Don't you want to help us tell our nice story, Sidney?
Then say, 'No, thank you.' And stop machine-gunning everybody, please.
And Neville, stop being a train and sit down. All right
