And I'm Possum.
Ooh! Hello, everyone!
Did you see that big kick?
It landed here.
I'm going to get it.
Ooh! I'll have to be careful going into the garden.
I don't want to damage anything.
Oh! Look! I'm hopping!
Hop, hop, hop, hop, hop.
Finally the rain has stopped.
Possum was very keen to go outside and play.
While he's been out there,
I've been making lunch.
We're going to have some wraps for lunch today
with some lovely salad in there.
It's almost lunchtime.
Hi, Sally. Hi, everyone.
Did you have fun playing outside?
Oh, yes, I really enjoyed myself.
Did you get wet?
No. I'm nice and dry.
Ooh! And, Sally, I'm so good at kicking my soccer ball.
It went so high.
Oh, that's great!
I've got everything ready for lunch now.
We can have some wraps, OK?
If you'd like a drink of milk, you can go to the fridge and get it.
OK. I'll get it.
Ha-ha! Ooh, it looks delicious.
Well, you need your wrap first and then put the things on it that you'd like.
What is it, Possum?
Sally, something very strange has happened.
What were you just doing, Sally?
Well, you were outside playing
and I was in here getting everything ready for lunch.
Did you stay in the kitchen the whole time,
or did you go somewhere else?
Well, I did leave the kitchen just to go and get some tea towels,
but most of the time I was in here.
Hmm. This is very strange.
What is it, Possum?
Look at the muddy footprints!
Well, somebody has obviously come in from outside.
I'm sure you all know where the muddy footprints come from.
This is a case for Police Officer Possum!
Come on, over here.
Can you please walk along these footprints so I can see?
Right, left, right, left.
That's how I normally walk.
You're right, Sally.
You went left, right, left, right.
Ah! I know what I need to do.
I need to copy these footprints into my book.
Possum, it'll be very hard to solve the case.
This is such a small picture compared to the big footprint.
They're different sizes.
You're right, Sally.
You're very clever.
You could become a police officer too!
Well. I'll need a bigger piece of paper.
Then I can cut out a stencil.
Well, I've got some big pieces of paper in my craft box.
I'll get some for you.
Oh, great! Let's go!
They're the same.
I, Police Officer Possum,
am very clever.
Can you please place your right foot
on the stencil?
Ooh! This is a very hard case to solve, this one.
Have you measured other people's feet to see if it's the right size or not?
Hmm. Good question, Sally.
I have not done that yet.
Well, it was a great idea to stencil the footprint,
though it's not exactly the same size, is it?
It's going to make it very hard to solve the mystery.
Why don't we watch some children making shapes in a different way?
Ah! Maybe that will give me an idea.
Yes! Let's watch.
Oh, that was great!
It was so good.
Did you see those children using the plaster of Paris?
That was the white stuff they were playing with.
I've actually got some in my craft box.
(GASPS) That's great!
Um, Possum, when you were outside, you didn't see anybody in the garden,
No, I didn't.
(GASPS) But why don't we go outside and see if there is a mystery person out there?
OK, let's go.
Alright. Come on!
Oh, hold on.
Right. Let's go.
Come on, Sally.
Maybe along here.
Hmm. Ooh, ooh.
Oh, thank you.
Thank you so much.
That was a delicious cottage pie.
I really enjoyed it.
Oh, I love sharing food.
You might see Possum acting a bit strange.
He's trying to solve a very serious mystery.
He's trying to work something out.
Amanda, were you here earlier today?
No. Sally gave that to me yesterday.
The muddy footprint wasn't here yesterday.
Step on that, please.
Oh! It's not Amanda.
Alright. Thank you.
I can't stay and help you solve the mystery.
I have to go work. OK, bye.
Whose footprint is it, Sally?
I don't know.
Come on, then.
Hi, Jay. Ooh.
Wait there. I'll be right back.
Wait here, Sally.
You put your foot on that.
Ooh. Phew. Right. Great.
Oh, that for me?
Bye. Great! (LAUGHS)
Here you go, Sally.
Oh, thank you.
Ooh! Come on!
And now there's a muddy footprint.
So it's the same one
as the one in the kitchen.
It's from here!
Yes, you're right.
Ooh, I need my stencil.
Can you get it for me, please?
Oh, of course.
Ooh. It's hard.
This one's hollow and this one's flat.
It doesn't fit!
You're right. Hmm.
Ooh, do you remember watching the children making those lovely shapes?
You see, this is hollow.
That means we can use plaster of Paris and pour it in.
Then once it sets we can take it out.
Ah! What a great idea.
That means when it's dry I can take it out
and if a visitor comes I can see if
their foot is the same size or not.
Yes, that's right.
Can you go get it for me, please?
Ah. Great stuff, Sally.
This is how we make our plaster of Paris.
I've got water in the bucket
and I've got a little bit left over as well in the jug.
We have to be very careful, though.
The plaster of Paris is in powder form and as I tip it in,
you need to stir the water in the bucket.
Be careful not to splash it, though.
And we can't stir it too long or else it will set.
So once it's mixed properly, we'll pour it in.
OK. I'll stir.
Here we go.
Could you pass the wooden spoon?
It's starting to thicken up.
Oh, that's great.
Oh, yes, that's good.
This will take some time to set,
so while we're waiting,
why don't we go and play some soccer?
Oh, yeah! Come on!
Here we go. Ah-ha!
Yep. Oop. Whoop.
Oh! Ooh. Ooh!
Ooh! Oh, no! Oh, no!
I was worried that the soccer ball
might land on our plaster and splash it everywhere.
But it hasn't. Good.
And it looks like it has set.
Would you like to lift it out?
Ooh! Can I?
(GASPS) Doesn't that look good!
Look at all that detail.
That's great. It's so lovely.
Ooh. The ball...and my foot...and...
I've solved it.
The ball landed in the garden earlier
and I put my foot in there
to get the ball back.
I've been trying to solve the mystery of who it was.
And it was me all along!
Well, you did such a good job being Police Officer Possum
and investigating who it was, and now you've solved the mystery.
It was you all along.
Why don't we go into the kitchen and you can clean up your muddy footprints?
OK. I can do that.
Well, our time is up.
Thanks for watching.
See you next time.
Alright. Come on
The case of the muddy footprints!
Did Sally make those muddy footprints in the kitchen? Well, who did? This looks like another case for Police Officer Possum, and what a clever way he has to find out who made them.
