The number 8
Rodd's umbrella has blown inside out. Rodd counts the spokes and finds out all the umbrellas in his flat have eight spokes. He also discovers spiders have eight legs and octopuses have eight arms. He hunts for the numeral eight on his shelf, and asks the children to join him in splashing in eight 'puddles'. He asks the children to help him work out how many mini-wellies the spider will need, through matching and counting. Rodd asks the children to join in his song about the number eight, and to draw the number in the air.
