And I'm Possum.
Oh, hello, everyone!
I'm practicing playing soccer, kicking the ball around.
I love playing soccer.
Where did this come from?
It's different to mine.
Hmm, mine's round and black and white.
This one's an oval shape and it's red.
It's not mine.
I don't like it.
Possum where did that come from?
I don't know.
I was just playing soccer, kicking my ball and it just landed here.
I threw it back, it came back again.
I threw it back again and then it came back!
I think this ball likes me.
I think there might be someone over there that likes you.
They might want to play with you.
You think, really?
I believe so.
Sally, I waited, but no one came.
Sally, this ball's different.
Look, it's oval, and then, look, it's…it's round.
Hmm, what about your ball, Possum?
Its round, round, round and round.
Its round all over!
That's right, it is round but it's not a flat circle.
It's a three-dimensional shape called a sphere.
Oh, let's have a look!
Look, Sally, it's round, and then it's oval.
Possum, you are looking at the two different shapes and comparing them.
Can we compare colour, as well?
Oh, yes, of course.
My one's black and white, but that's red!
You seem quite excited by that.
Would you like to make a chart comparing all different types of balls?
We can also compare them to see if they are the same, or they're different.
Well, I'll go inside and get some paper.
I'll take this ball with me, and why don't you go and get some of your other balls.
Oh, yeah, OK!
Right, now that one, which one is it?
And this one?
My golf ball!
Now, this one, that's your new ball, isn't it?
Yep, that's my new one.
My soccer ball.
Right, and that one?
My cricket ball.
Now, how should we compare them?
Great, now that one.
Hmm, oh, it's very big.
That's right, it's very big.
Yes, it's very big.
That's "very" and that's "big."
Now, the next one.
Oh, it's very small.
"Very"…ah, there it is.
Right, now that one.
Oh, it's big.
Yes, it's big.
There it is!
Ah, it's big too.
Hmm, cricket ball.
Yeah, oh, it's small.
Hmm, "small," there it is!
Now, we've compared the sizes.
What else should we compare?
Yes, colour, good idea.
That one is green and with white dots.
That's right, two colours.
Great, what's next?
That one is white.
That one is red.
Hmm, there it is!
That one, what colour's that one?
Black and white.
"Black" starts with B.
B…there it is!
White, same as that one.
Great, now there's one more.
Ah, that one's red!
You've put a lot of thought into that, haven't you?
Now, how shall we compare them?
I know, feel!
Yep, that one!
"Soft" starts with an S.
S…there it is!
Now, that one.
Hmm, oh, that's hard.
Yes, it is hard.
Yes, you're right.
Now, the new one.
Yes, it's soft.
Ah, that's easy.
Right, one more.
Oh, that's hard.
Yes, it's hard.
Look, it's the last one!
That's great work, Possum, making your chart.
You've done some great comparing.
Sally, no-one's come to get the ball yet.
I'm going to go throw it over the fence again, OK?
Alright, off you go.
It's looking all good.
Sally, its Jay!
Hello, you're here and he's got the new ball!
Sally, it's his!
Oh, would you like to play with Jay?
Yes, he's having a look at your chart.
What's he doing?
What does he mean, Sally?
How we use the ball.
Why don't we watch some children, and how they use different types of balls?
Yeah Jay, let's watch!
Oh, that was great!
Yes, it was.
I know what to do.
Right, this one, we use our hands and this one, a golf club!
And this one, our feet!
And our hands!
Oh, I know.
We use our head and our feet.
Oh, that's great.
I know, a cricket bat.
A cricket bat, that's right.
Oh, yeah, we're finished!
Well done, Possum.
Oh, Sally, I've had such a great day learning about different types of balls.
Why don't you two play with the ball out here in the yard and I'll go inside and make us some food, OK?
OK, Jay, let's kick your ball around.
Oh, great job.
Catch it, yeah!
It looks delicious.
Sally, I've had such a great day today, but I need to eat now.
Oh, hold this.
Every time Jay comes here, we have such a good time, don't we?
Well, our time is up.
Thanks for watching!
See you next time.
Oh, have some, Jay.
Oh, mm, it's delicious.
A football keeps coming over the fence and it's not like Possum's soccer ball. What will Possum learn about sports balls and who is making this ball appear again and again?
