And I'm Possum.
Oh hello, everyone!
See all the cards on the table here?
I'm actually making a house of cards.
I better get it completed before Possum comes in.
I know he would love to help and it's very kind of him to want to but when he gets excited, he doesn't tend to be very careful and can sometimes make a mess.
He needs to learn to be careful and gentle.
Has anyone seen my notebook?
I don't know where I've put it.
Oh, oh, hang on!
There it is!
I found it.
It says 'tree'.
Sally wrote it for me.
Oh, I love my tree.
Before, when Sally wasn't around, I just slept all day and wasted my time but now that Sally's here, I get so excited to wake up because there's so much to learn!
Oh, I need to learn it all so very quickly, I want to learn everything now!
Look, oh, look!
Look, it says 'bike'.
I love this bike.
So much… Oh!
Ah, just…ah! >
Oh, oh, oh!
Ugh! Oh! Uh! Whoa!
Oh, careful Possum!
I need a drink of water.
Oh, hold on, Possum.
Just take some breaths, slow down.
You've spilt the water, but it doesn't matter.
Luckily, it's a plastic cup, not a glass cup and it hasn't broken.
You need to get a sponge and soak up the water, ok?
Children need to be careful too, at home and at school.
Why don't we watch some children being very careful with their art?
Yeah, let's watch!
Those children were being very careful.
Did you see how they were working carefully and taking lots of extra care with their art?
I can be like that too!
You are funny, Possum.
You really are!
I know you're always very careful, though but that has reminded me of a lovely game we can play.
We must be very careful when we play.
Oh, Sally, while you get the game, I'll make a cup of tea.
Oh Possum, do you need me to remind you to be careful?
I think you know how to be careful around hot water, don't you?
Yes, I do.
OK, you get that.
I'll get the game.
You were very careful assembling that, weren't you?
So, this is the wooden game I was telling you about.
It's a great game.
What we need to do is we take one of the pieces from the bottom and put it on the top and if it doesn't fall over, then it's my turn.
Then, we take turns until it falls over and whoever makes it fall over loses, OK?
Are we ready?
Now it's my turn.
Yep, it's your turn.
Let's do it again.
Oh, yes, let's.
No, I'm first.
Oh, oh, ah!
Yes, I lost this one.
Ah, but it was a good game, wasn't it?
Oh, I do love it!
Oh, how lovely, now I'm going to have that cup of tea that you made me.
You were so careful playing that game Possum.
It was great and this is a lovely cup of tea.
Thank you so much.
You really are a caring possum to make me this tea and that just shows me that you really do care about me.
Yes, I really do care about you but I also am very careful and care about everything else but sometimes I get a little bit too excited and forget to be careful.
Possum, this morning you were so excited.
Oh, I'll show you!
Do you remember?
You put the word in.
Tree and bike.
I love learning those words.
You've written them down for me, and that gets me excited.
I just want to learn all sorts of different words now!
This is definitely a very good way to learn Possum!
Do you want to learn some more words?
Oh, hold on!
Sally, can you write the word down please?
Yes, it's a spoon.
I'll write it down.
Sally, where are those cards?
Good, because I need them.
I need to make a house of cards.
Oh ok, you can try.
It's very hard to do, though.
You'll need to be very, very careful when you're building it.
Ok, see ya!
It's going to be hard.
Hmm, I need the top.
You're always careful Sally but why weren't you careful now?
I think someone has been a bit careless and left things on the ground.
I'll remember to be more careful and watch where I'm going.
You must have been very careful building this.
Yes, I was very careful.
That is brilliant Possum.
Well, I think we need to carefully tidy up the yard.
Does that mean you're going to say our time is up?
Our time is up.
Thanks for watching!
See you next time!
What is Possum so excited about? He is usually careful, but today he is knocking things over. Wait till you see what he makes when he does slow down and take care.
