Programme 6: School
Saturday/Sunday - 10/11 May 2008 6.30 am BBC2 NI
Although na Dódaí do not go to school - they like to
pretend, and in this programme they play at going to their own nursery school
where Nóra is in charge.
Nóra asks them about the weather, and the others use shapes and
sounds to discuss what the weather is like.
Then the magic bubble machine takes us to a nursery school where we see
children preparing healthy snacks and drinks for breaktime.
Na Dódaí are hungry, and take out their lunch boxes. Ruairí is
sad because he has forgotten his, but Naoise is happy to share with his
big brother. Then Nóra tells them a story about baby bear on his
first day at nursery school
After this, Na Dódaí 'drive' home on their school bus, singing
as they go. Nóra and Róise make a picture with felt shapes
before it is time for them all to say goodbye to their friends.
Suggested activities for parents
- Play 'I spy' with your child as you travel to and
- Make your fridge a 'weather board' - draw
pictures which indicate sun, wind, rain etc, glue them to fridge magnets
and ask your child to place the appropriate one on the fridge each
morning, as they describe the day's weather.
- Have fun making smoothies with your child, and learning the names of
different fruits and ingredients as you work together.
