I'm Sally!

And I'm Possum!


Hello, everyone.

I'm being very fast in cleaning up

because I need to go to the shop.

I'm off to buy a few things for a picnic

and I've organized a very special surprise, too.


I wonder if that’s Possum or the surprise, I’ll go see.

Let’s see.

Hello Possum! Hi Sally!

Oh, what are you doing Sally?

I'm being very fast in cleaning up because I have to go to the shop,

I need to buy a few things.

Why are you going to the shop?

There's a few things that I need to buy for a picnic.

Ohhh … I love picnics!

Yes, I know you do, Possum.

But, you're going to love this picnic even more

because I've got a special surprise for you.

Oh, I love surprises. Can I have it now?

No, you have to wait. You have to be patient.

I need to go to the shop.

I will be fast.

Will you be fast like me?

No, Possum. Not as fast as you.

But I will walk very quickly.

Why don't you come to the gate with me and you can watch me walk very fast to the shop and back.

Okay, come on.

I'm off to the shop. Back soon. Bye!


Oh, she’s so slow!

That’s not fast. I'm fast. Watch.


hmm …

She said she'd be quick!

I've been waiting for such a long time.

I might have a quick nap.



Where is she?

I’ve had such a long nap.

She should be here by now.

Hmm … Where is she?

Where's Sally?


Oh, finally, you’re back!

I was very fast going to the shop.

While I was at the shop I had to wait – but then I came back fast!

Sally, you were not fast.

You were slow.

I was not slow, Possum.

No, I was quick!

No, no, no, no. I'm fast.

Wow, you are fast, Possum.

But I know someone who's even faster,

faster than you.

Sally, who?

Why don't we watch and see? Oh, okay!

Hello, my name is Sekou.

I love to run.

I am very fast.

My favourite race is the 100 metres.

I train very hard.

When I'm older, I want to go to the Olympics.

Wow! He was very fast, Sally.

I couldn’t run that fast.


but he trains a lot

to be able to run that fast.

Yeah, wow.

Well, we've got our food ready here.

I was thinking that we could make some pocket bread sandwiches.

Like this, Sally?

No, not like that, Possum.

This is pocket bread.

It's a bit different. You can open it up, see?

And you put your food inside.

We can put all sorts of different things in there,

like mayonnaise, or butter,

or even some salsa.

You can put lettuce,


tomatoes, cheese, carrots,

and there's meat …

chicken, tuna.

Sally, I want it all!

Oh, no, Possum. You can't have everything.

It will be too big and you won't be able to eat it or hold it.

You can make more than one, though.

Oh, okay.

Why don’t you select a few things to put in your sandwich, okay?

I'm going to cut up some cheese.


Hmm …

A bit of this ...

Hmm ...

oh ...

bit of that, oh, mmm ...

ooh, another one, oh ...

to finish it off ...

Oh, these look great. Can we eat them now?

No, Possum. We need to clean up this mess first.

Oh, but Sally,

I'd rather be outside sitting down at the picnic and eating it.

I know, Possum, but we need to clean up the mess first.

Oh, okay.


before, you said I was going too slow to the shops when I was fast,

but now you're being slow.

Once we've tidied up, we can go and have our picnic.

Okay …

Tada! Oh, wow!

Sally, are we ready to eat yet? Not yet, Possum.

There's still a surprise coming.

Oh! A surprise … Who? …

Oh, it’s Jay!

Oh wow!


Oh, I know what he’s trying to say.

He’s saying he tried to get here as fast as he could.


No, no, no.

You're playing tricks on Jay!

He he he! You're funny!

Why don't we have a race around the house?

You can do two laps and finish here, okay?

3, 2, 1 … Go!

What? What!?

Oh … Ha, ha, ha!

Come and sit down.

Oh yum! Thank you.

Well, our time is up.

Thanks for watching!

See you next time!

Bye! Bye!

The great race
