- Hello!

- Huh?

- Look!

- Aw!

- Hmm!

- Wow!

- Look!

I'm Sally.

- And I'm Possum.

- Hello!!

- Hello.

- Hi Sally.

- Hi Possum.

- Hi everyone.

- Hello.

- Sally, what's that?

- That is a tent.

- What's a tent?

- Oh well you know I'm going camping.

- What's camping?

- Well, camping is when you're sleeping

away from home.

You're in a different place.

And you set up a tent,

so that you can sleep in that.

That's what this is, a tent.

- Sally, but this is too small.

I couldn't sleep in there.

- No Possum, that's just the bag.

The tent is rolled up inside.

You take it out,

and then you put it together.

This isn't my tent,

I borrowed this from a friend.

Now I've never used this tent before.

So I'd like to take it out,

open it up, and assemble it.

But before I do that,

there are a few things that I need to do


So maybe you can help me,

put it together after that.

- Yeah okay,

why don't you go inside and do what you need to do,

and I can set this tent up myself.

- Oh that'd be great Possum, thank you.

- There's some instructions in there,

they should be easy enough to follow.

Thank you.

- Okay, bye.

(light music)

- Possum, what happened?

What happened Possum?

I thought the tent would be easy

to put together.

Didn't you understand the instructions?

- Instructions?


- There should be an instruction sheet here somewhere.

Oh Possum, they're still in the bag.

These are the instructions to show you how to put

the tent together.

- Oh.

- See?

- Aha.

I know what to do.

(light music)


having instructions makes it so much easier.

- Good work Possum,

that's what the instructions are for,

to help put up the tent.

- Hey Sally, this is a one person tent.

But where's the one possum tent?

- Well, sorry to say this Possum,

but my friends invited me to go camping,

they didn't invite you.

- Oh.

- But I know, seeing as you've got the tent

together, why don't you

camp out here, overnight.

You can sleep in the tent.

- Yes please.

What do I need to bring?

- Well that's easy Possum.

We'll cook our food outdoors.

And because the inside of the tent

is quite small, you only need

to bring a few basic things.

Just the essentials.

- Okay Sally,

But my bed wouldn't fit in there would it?

- No Possum,

your bed is far too big.

It wouldn't work.

I know, you can borrow my air bed.

And you can sleep on that.

- Great.

Can I go to bed now?

- No not yet Possum.

- Sally, when people go camping,

what do they do?

- Well why don't we watch some children

going camping and see what they do.

- Yeah let's watch.

(light music)

That looked great.

- Yes.

- Can we cook outside as well?

- Oh yes we can.

I have a barbecue around the side of the house.

We can go and get that,

and we can cook outdoors like they did.

- Oh yeah, what a great idea.

- And I know what food we can cook.

Hot dogs.

They're delicious.

- Oh yum.

- Right,

well I'll go inside and organise the food,

and while I do that,

why don't you go and get the things

you need for tonight?


- Okay.

Things I really need.

(light music)

- Well I've got everything I need.

I've got the bread, some sausages,

and the onions.

I'm gonna go and see if Possum is ready

for the barbecue.

- Yeah.

- What is this?


- Hello Sally.

- Are all of these things from your tree?

- Yes, but wait,

I've got more things to bring.

- Hang on hang on hang on Possum.

Wait wait.

When you go camping,

you only need a few things,

just the essentials.

This is far too much,

please put it away.

(light music)


- Sally, it smells delicious,

is it ready?

- Yes it's ready, would you like a sausage?

- Yes please.

- Would you like some onion?

- Oh yes.

- Does it taste good?

- Mm.

- Do you like it?

- It's delicious.

- Good.

- It's so much fun cooking outdoors.

- Yes it's been a great day today,

so much fun.

- Sally,

I think I'm ready for bed now.

- Well goodnight Possum,

I'll see you when you wake up.

- Okay, hold on.

(light music)

- Oh.

I thought you'd be asleep Possum.

- My tent is very very dark,

I'm just not used to it Sally.

- I thought Possums loved the dark.

See, when it gets dark,

and you're scared,

you can use this light.

- Oh thank you Sally.


- What?

- Sally, look,

I'm so scared.

- Scared, why?

- Come, look.

Come on.



- Possum you are so funny.

I know what that is.

That's your teddy bear.

- What?

- Yes, look, I'll show you.

- Huh?

- The light was casting a shadow.

Look I'll show you.

I'll go get a torch.

(light music)

Now, turn on the torch,

and shine it.

See, there's a shadow.

See how the torch shines on the teddy bear?

But it can't go through it.

It makes a shadow,

it's the same as what happened before in your tent.


- Yeah.


- See?

You can make all these different shapes with your hands.

- Sally, I think I'm all right now.

I can go to bed.

- That's right Possum.

It's very safe inside the tent.

Well, our time is up.

- Well thanks for watching.

- See you next time.

- Bye. - Bye.

Goodnight Possum.

- Goodnight.
