Rachel Yankey, top international footballer,

0:00:440:00:47

and all-round sporting superstar.

0:00:470:00:51

But when Rachel's not scoring goals for her team,

0:00:510:00:54

she's playing with the Footy Pups.

0:00:540:00:58

THEY CHEER

0:00:580:01:00

Hi, everyone.

0:01:030:01:04

We're all warmed up, so it's time to get moving.

0:01:040:01:07

Today, on my team we have - number one, Emily.

0:01:100:01:15

Excellent, well done.

0:01:150:01:17

Number two, Isaac.

0:01:170:01:19

Fantastic skills.

0:01:200:01:22

Number three, Alana.

0:01:220:01:24

Brilliant.

0:01:250:01:26

Number four, Aidee.

0:01:270:01:29

Amazing.

0:01:300:01:32

Number five, Tilly.

0:01:330:01:35

That's it, keep dribbling.

0:01:350:01:38

Number six, William.

0:01:380:01:41

Oh, look at that.

0:01:410:01:42

And also joining us are Footy Pups Rex and Geraldine.

0:01:440:01:47

So, that's today's team.

0:01:470:01:50

CHEERING

0:01:500:01:51

OK, guys, gather round. It's team talk time.

0:01:510:01:54

THEY CHEER

0:01:540:01:56

Today, we're going to be looking at types of balls we use in sport.

0:01:560:02:00

Each sport uses a different ball which looks and feels different.

0:02:000:02:04

Does anyone know what types of balls these are?

0:02:040:02:07

-Isaac?

-A basketball.

0:02:070:02:08

Brilliant.

0:02:080:02:09

Basketballs are extra bouncy,

0:02:090:02:11

and they've got pimples on them to help us grip.

0:02:110:02:14

-Aidee?

-A rugby ball.

0:02:140:02:16

Rugby balls are oval-shaped,

0:02:160:02:18

and they've got pointy ends to make it easier to throw and catch.

0:02:180:02:22

-Tilly?

-A tennis ball.

0:02:220:02:23

Tennis balls are furry to help slow them down

0:02:230:02:26

when they fly through the air. Well done, guys.

0:02:260:02:29

Let's go and have a practice.

0:02:290:02:31

In front of you is a box that contains a type of ball.

0:02:340:02:37

Put your hand through the hole at the top of the box,

0:02:370:02:40

have a feel around and describe what you can feel. Emily, you're first.

0:02:400:02:44

-Pop your hand in the box, have a feel around.

-It's hard.

0:02:440:02:48

-What else can you feel?

-It's really light.

0:02:480:02:51

Do you want to have a guess?

0:02:510:02:53

Is it a table tennis ball?

0:02:530:02:56

Oh, do we think she's right?

0:02:560:02:58

A table tennis ball.

0:02:580:03:00

Well done, Emily.

0:03:000:03:02

Isaac's next.

0:03:020:03:04

Fluffy, a little bit small.

0:03:040:03:08

OK.

0:03:080:03:09

Tennis ball.

0:03:090:03:11

It is a tennis ball.

0:03:110:03:12

Brilliant. Alana's next.

0:03:120:03:15

It's kind of a little bit bumpy.

0:03:150:03:18

Is it a golf ball?

0:03:180:03:19

It is a golf ball.

0:03:190:03:21

Well done, Alana.

0:03:210:03:22

The end is pointy.

0:03:220:03:25

A rugby ball.

0:03:250:03:26

Is it a rugby ball?

0:03:260:03:28

Yes!

0:03:280:03:29

Smooth and it's big.

0:03:300:03:33

-I think it's a football.

-You think it's a football?

0:03:340:03:37

Oh, yes, she's got it right.

0:03:370:03:40

Lumpy and hard.

0:03:400:03:42

-Do you think you know what it is?

-Yeah, a basketball.

0:03:420:03:46

We've got a basketball.

0:03:460:03:47

Great guessing, guys.

0:03:470:03:49

Well done.

0:03:490:03:50

THEY CHEER

0:03:500:03:52

Lots of sports use a ball specific to the game that you're playing.

0:03:520:03:56

I'm now going to challenge you to see how hard it is

0:03:560:03:59

to use a different ball to play football.

0:03:590:04:02

You need to dribble your ball and see if you can score a goal.

0:04:020:04:05

William, you've got the football...

0:04:050:04:07

Dribble it to the goal.

0:04:070:04:09

It's nice and smooth so it rolls really well on the grass.

0:04:090:04:12

Can he score?

0:04:120:04:14

It's going to be difficult with this rugby ball.

0:04:140:04:17

It's got pointy ends so it bounces randomly.

0:04:170:04:20

Great control though, Tilly.

0:04:200:04:23

And an amazing goal.

0:04:230:04:26

Emily's next with a basketball.

0:04:260:04:28

It's big and round, a bit like a football.

0:04:280:04:31

This golf ball's quite small, so it could be tricky to kick.

0:04:310:04:34

I'm not surprised Aidee's struggling with this one.

0:04:340:04:38

-Aidee!

-He goes for goal.

0:04:380:04:40

-Yes!

-Alana, you've got the tennis ball.

0:04:400:04:42

It's furry, it's not going to roll like a football.

0:04:420:04:45

This could be tricky.

0:04:450:04:47

But it's a lovely goal. Isaac's last with a tiny table tennis ball.

0:04:470:04:51

It's really tricky trying to play with the wrong ball, isn't it, Rex?

0:04:510:04:55

You're right, Geraldine. Do you remember that time I popped

0:04:550:04:59

-the last football at Pupton Park?

-Oh, yeah.

0:04:590:05:01

Hello, and welcome to Pupton Park.

0:05:040:05:06

You're just in time for another fun football practice.

0:05:060:05:10

Although, has anyone seen Freddie? PHONE RINGS

0:05:100:05:13

Oh, that must be Freddie now.

0:05:130:05:16

Sorry, Pups, it's a disaster.

0:05:160:05:18

I'm stuck in traffic so I'm going to be late for practice.

0:05:180:05:22

You'll have to start your kick around without me.

0:05:220:05:25

-ALL:

-No problem, Freddie.

0:05:250:05:27

Promise you'll look after that football,

0:05:270:05:29

seeing as you've lost all the other ones.

0:05:290:05:32

-ALL:

-We promise, Freddie.

-REX:

-I love a kick around.

0:05:320:05:35

Oh!

0:05:350:05:37

Oh, bones!

0:05:370:05:40

We might need another ball.

0:05:400:05:43

But we haven't got another one.

0:05:430:05:45

And we promised Freddie we'd look after it.

0:05:450:05:48

We'd better find something else to practise with

0:05:480:05:51

before Freddie gets back.

0:05:510:05:52

We can't play football without an actual football.

0:05:520:05:56

As long as it rolls and we can kick it, no-one will notice.

0:05:560:06:01

'Ooh, I think young Rex might be in for a surprise.'

0:06:010:06:06

This balloon will make a great football. Ha-ha!

0:06:060:06:09

This pom-pom is nice and round.

0:06:140:06:16

There.

0:06:160:06:18

I think we need to keep looking, Rex.

0:06:180:06:23

The search is over.

0:06:230:06:25

-We can use this tomato. Catch, Pickles.

-Oh!

0:06:250:06:30

Sorry.

0:06:300:06:31

None of these things make a good football.

0:06:320:06:35

And we promised Freddie we'd start our kick around.

0:06:350:06:38

Oh, oh. Maybe Groundskeeper Pete can help us find a new football.

0:06:380:06:43

'While the Pups are looking for a new football,

0:06:430:06:46

'the Cheer-fleaders are looking for the Pups.'

0:06:460:06:49

-Where is everyone?

-If there are no Pups to cheer for,

0:06:490:06:52

-we'll have to find something else to do.

-Let's pick some apples.

0:06:520:06:56

-BOTH:

-Argh!

0:06:560:06:59

-Watch out!

-Ow!

0:06:590:07:01

The Pups must have kicked these into the tree.

0:07:010:07:04

'Oh, dear. I think the Cheer-fleaders

0:07:040:07:06

'will have to look for a new way to spend their time.'

0:07:060:07:10

Don't worry, Pups,

0:07:100:07:11

I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for

0:07:110:07:14

in our big, old box of lost balls.

0:07:140:07:16

-ALL:

-Oh, wow. Thanks, Groundskeeper Pete.

0:07:160:07:20

Maybe we could play football with this rugby ball.

0:07:200:07:23

Ha-ha-ha!

0:07:230:07:25

-BOTH:

-Look out, Pickles.

0:07:270:07:29

CRASH!

0:07:290:07:30

What a howler!

0:07:300:07:32

Oh, dear. A rugby ball is shaped a bit like an egg,

0:07:320:07:36

so it's easier to hold, throw and catch.

0:07:360:07:41

Which makes it perfect for playing rugby.

0:07:410:07:44

Maybe we could play football with this basketball.

0:07:440:07:50

Ah!

0:07:500:07:52

-ALL:

-Whoa!

0:07:520:07:53

Ha!

0:07:540:07:55

Ooh!

0:07:550:07:57

-Whoa!

-Oop! Ah!

0:07:570:08:00

That ball's far too boingy.

0:08:000:08:02

A basketball's meant to be really bouncy

0:08:020:08:06

because that's how players dribble it

0:08:060:08:08

up and down the basketball court.

0:08:080:08:11

Oh, I think we need to keep looking.

0:08:110:08:14

Meanwhile, with no Pups to cheer on, the Cheer-fleaders

0:08:140:08:18

are still looking for something else to keep them busy.

0:08:180:08:21

Get ready for the best cake ever.

0:08:210:08:24

-ALL:

-Woohoo!

-Wah! Oooh!

0:08:240:08:29

I'm not sure we're very good at baking either.

0:08:290:08:33

We're running out of balls to try.

0:08:360:08:38

Hup, hup, hup, hup.

0:08:380:08:41

Pass it to me, Benny.

0:08:410:08:43

Ruf!

0:08:430:08:45

SQUISH!

0:08:450:08:47

Oops! A football would never squish like that.

0:08:470:08:50

No, because the ping-pong ball is very delicate and light.

0:08:500:08:55

Oh, I know.

0:08:550:08:57

They use those for table tennis.

0:08:570:08:59

Yes, and the players use tiny bats like this

0:08:590:09:03

to bounce it across the table.

0:09:030:09:06

Woohoo!

0:09:060:09:08

Oh, it's no good. I can't even blow it back up.

0:09:110:09:15

'Poor Rex looks deflated.

0:09:150:09:17

'Meanwhile, the Cheer-fleaders are taking a huge leap for fleakind.'

0:09:170:09:22

I want to be the first flea in space.

0:09:220:09:26

-ALL:

-Flea, two, one, blast off!

0:09:260:09:30

Did you land on the moon?

0:09:300:09:32

No, just another big pile of footballs.

0:09:320:09:37

Don't worry, there's one more ball in here.

0:09:370:09:43

Over here.

0:09:430:09:45

Eeh! I wouldn't kick that if I were you.

0:09:450:09:48

Cricket balls are very hard.

0:09:500:09:52

You hit them with a strong, wooden bat.

0:09:520:09:55

You don't kick them with your boot.

0:09:550:09:58

Ah, so the kind of ball we use for football is important after all.

0:09:580:10:03

Now we've got nothing to play football with.

0:10:030:10:06

And Freddie will be back any minute.

0:10:060:10:09

-CAR HORN BEEPS

-That's him now.

0:10:090:10:12

Hello, Pups.

0:10:140:10:16

Why aren't you practising?

0:10:160:10:18

I'm really sorry, Freddie, but I popped the last football.

0:10:180:10:21

We tried to find another ball.

0:10:210:10:24

But it turns out the best ball to play football with is...

0:10:240:10:28

-ALL:

-A football.

0:10:280:10:30

Well, I'm sorry I took so long.

0:10:300:10:33

But that's because I was out buying more footballs.

0:10:330:10:37

-ALL:

-Bow-wow!

0:10:370:10:39

There you are, Pups.

0:10:390:10:41

We couldn't find you anywhere.

0:10:410:10:44

-BOTH:

-We did find all of these footballs, though.

0:10:440:10:48

Wow, now we've got twice as many footballs to play with.

0:10:480:10:52

And lose!

0:10:520:10:53

-BOTH:

-Not too heavy, not too small, they bounce just right,

0:10:530:10:57

we love footballs!

0:10:570:10:58

-ALL:

-We love, we love, footballs!

0:10:580:11:01

Aye, different balls are all perfect for the sports they're meant for.

0:11:010:11:06

And there's nothing more perfect to play football with than a football.

0:11:060:11:11

Ya!

0:11:110:11:12

-ALL:

-Huh?

0:11:130:11:16

-ALL:

-Rex!

0:11:160:11:18

THEY LAUGH

0:11:180:11:20

It was nice of Freddie to buy us those new footballs, wasn't it, Rex?

0:11:200:11:24

Yeah, and lucky that the Cheer-fleaders

0:11:240:11:26

found all of the old ones, too.

0:11:260:11:29

-Hi, guys.

-BOTH:

-Hi, Rachel.

0:11:290:11:31

Oh, that's heavy.

0:11:310:11:32

I heard you lost all your footballs,

0:11:320:11:34

so I found this ball and thought we could use it.

0:11:340:11:37

Rachel, that's a bowling ball. You can't play football with that.

0:11:370:11:41

Well, it's round and it's smooth like a football.

0:11:410:11:45

Let me have a try.

0:11:450:11:47

BOING!

0:11:470:11:48

Oh! Ow!

0:11:480:11:50

That ball's too heavy. You're right.

0:11:500:11:52

You can't play football with a bowling ball.

0:11:520:11:56

OK, guys, who fancies a game?

0:11:560:11:58

-ALL:

-Yes!

0:11:580:12:00

So, I've split you into two teams.

0:12:000:12:02

-We've got the yellows. Yellows, give me a cheer!

-Yay!

0:12:020:12:05

Fantastic. And we've got the red team.

0:12:050:12:08

-Red team, give me a cheer!

-Yay!

0:12:080:12:10

Brilliant. Let's take a look with the Footy Pups

0:12:100:12:13

to find out how to play. Come and have a look.

0:12:130:12:16

To play this game, you use different balls.

0:12:160:12:19

The first player runs to the ball pool,

0:12:190:12:21

looks for a basketball,

0:12:210:12:23

and shoots it at the basketball hoop to get a point.

0:12:230:12:27

To get a point at the rugby post,

0:12:270:12:29

they must find a rugby ball and score a try.

0:12:290:12:32

And finally, for another point,

0:12:320:12:34

they find a football and shoot for the goal.

0:12:340:12:37

The winners will be the team who score the most points

0:12:370:12:40

with the correct balls.

0:12:400:12:42

Off you go, William.

0:12:440:12:45

Remember, he's searching for a basketball first.

0:12:450:12:48

He shoots for the hoop.

0:12:480:12:50

Brilliant stuff.

0:12:500:12:52

A rugby ball this time.

0:12:520:12:54

-Place it on the ground.

-Find a football.

0:12:540:12:56

-Great advice, Isaac.

-That's it, shoot for the goal.

0:12:560:13:00

Oh, it's a beautiful goal.

0:13:000:13:02

Alana runs forward.

0:13:020:13:04

Well done, straight in there.

0:13:040:13:06

She goes for a basket. Oh, never mind.

0:13:060:13:09

There's a rugby ball right there.

0:13:090:13:11

-She wastes no time.

-See if you can score a try.

0:13:110:13:14

Lovely stuff. And now to find a football.

0:13:140:13:17

She's got one. Can she seal the deal?

0:13:170:13:20

-Yes.

-Woohoo.

0:13:200:13:22

Go, Isaac.

0:13:220:13:23

He's looking to score a basket here.

0:13:230:13:25

He shoots. It's in!

0:13:250:13:27

Super speedy stuff.

0:13:290:13:31

-What ball do you need this time?

-A football, Rachel.

0:13:310:13:34

Can he score?

0:13:340:13:36

And time.

0:13:360:13:38

It's the second half. Can the yellows do any better than the reds?

0:13:380:13:43

Tilly shoots and scores.

0:13:430:13:45

Quickly, get another ball.

0:13:450:13:47

-THEY CHANT:

-Tilly!

0:13:470:13:49

She scores a try for the yellow team but now she needs a football.

0:13:490:13:53

Tilly shoots for the goal.

0:13:530:13:55

-Fantastic.

-Run as quick as you can.

0:13:550:13:58

Great teamwork by the Yellows.

0:13:580:14:00

Aidee sets off, looking for a basketball.

0:14:000:14:03

-Push from the bottom of the ball.

-Lovely stuff.

0:14:030:14:06

Get a rugby ball.

0:14:060:14:07

That's the one he's after.

0:14:070:14:09

And he scores a terrific try.

0:14:090:14:11

Next up, it's a football.

0:14:110:14:13

Shoot for the goal. He's got to be pleased with that one.

0:14:130:14:17

-Woohoo.

-Emily needs a basketball first.

0:14:170:14:19

She shoots for the hoop.

0:14:190:14:21

-Oh, unlucky.

-We need a rugby ball.

0:14:210:14:24

Good advice, and she scores a lovely try for the Yellows.

0:14:240:14:27

Football, next.

0:14:270:14:28

Can you score?

0:14:300:14:31

It's in.

0:14:310:14:32

-And time.

-Let's have a replay.

0:14:330:14:35

Both teams were great at finding and scoring with different balls,

0:14:350:14:39

but who will be today's winners?

0:14:390:14:42

Let's go to the Footy Pups for the final scores.

0:14:420:14:45

Both teams scored eight points,

0:14:450:14:47

making today's score an amazing draw.

0:14:470:14:51

My team today have been fantastic at using different balls.

0:14:510:14:55

We've recognised rugby balls,

0:14:550:14:57

we've dribbled with tennis balls,

0:14:570:14:59

and we've scored goals with footballs.

0:14:590:15:01

Most importantly,

0:15:010:15:02

we've learnt to use the right balls for the right sports.

0:15:020:15:06

That's it for today, guys.

0:15:060:15:08

Well done, everyone. Now you've got

0:15:080:15:10

-THEY CHEER
