Programme 3: My family
Saturday/Sunday - 19/20 April 2008 6.30 am BBC2 NI
After they say 'hello', Nóra uses a song and dance - on a theme
of sisters and brothers to help Naoise remember which is which.
Then Ruairí pretends to be Grandad, and the others have to guess
who he is. They all play with a puppet family that Nóra finds in
their toy box.
Via the magic bubble machine we meet Lara who introduces her family, Mammy,
Daddy and her two little sisters.
Then Na Dódaí act out the story of the three Bears before
Nóra reads a funny story about what happened when Granny and Grandad
bear came on a visit.
After the story, Naoise wants to visit Granny and Grandad bear and they
'drive' to their house in their invisible car, playing 'I spy' and singing
funny songs about their relatives as they go.
Then it is time for 'Na Dodaí' to say goodbye to their
Suggested activities for parents
- Make a family tree - on a simple drawing of a tree, help your
child to stick on photos of immediate family members, naming them and
talking about them as you play together.
- If you have access to a camcorder,
make your own 'family movie' based
on Lara's introduction of her family.
- Using cushions, or kitchen
chairs, 'make' a car or bus,
and go on your own journey to visit someone in your family.
