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 lunch 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 the story, 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.

Cé nach dtéann na Dódaí ar scoil, ligeann siad orthu féin gurb amhlaidh a théann agus sa chlár seo téann siad chuig a naíscoil féin, mar a bhfuil Nóra i gceannas. Cuireann Nóra ceisteanna orthu faoin aimsir agus úsáideann an chuid eile den ghrúpa cruthanna éagsúla le cur síos ar an aimsir. 


Na Dódaí, Imagine Media’s landmark series for young Irish learners, is produced for BBC NI with support from the Irish Language Broadcast Fund.
