The family's new home town: Filton
They go to Dave's car. Everybody gets in. Dave starts driving.
It is a two-hour drive from the airport to your new house.
Oh, I can't wait to see our new house!
What colour is it?
Your house is yellow.
Yellow is my favourite colour!
Tell us about our new home town, Dave.
Okay. Filton is a small city. There is a high school. It is close to your house. There is also a post office, a train station, a few shops and a cinema.
They arrive in the city. As they drive along the Main Street, Dave points to a building.
Look, this is the post office and over there is the main station. From there, you can take the train to London.
And where is our school?
Just a moment, Anna, we're almost there.
They keep on driving.
Look, there it is. That is your new school and there is a playground just around the corner.
They turn right and Dave stops the car.
Here we are! This is your new home!
Oh, it's beautiful!
