Description

Na Dódaí argue about who is the tallest – then sing their ‘big and small’ song.  Then they find magical shapes on the floor, and play a  fun guessing game, where they identify different shapes. We visit Scoil an Droichid where we see children playing with shapes.  Ruairí and Roise sing their shapes song, and they do a special dance, using their bodies to make different shapes. Nóra tells the story of the lion and the mouse, and Na Dódaí recreate the story using song and dance.
