We took part in the new Smilers Programme introduced by Spartans Football Academy. Smilers is an oral health programme that teaches children the importance of good dental health and oral hygiene. We carried out tasks on the iPads before the practical activities and Spartans came to St. David’s to carry out fantastic practial lessons in school.

Primary three hosted an Irish food sale to raise money for our Lenten fundraiser and to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It truly was a fantastic day. Thank you to all who donated and helped out with our sale – we’ve raised over £170 so far which is such a great achievement. Thank you also to our guests who came to the cultural cafe. The children really enjoyed learning all about Ireland and sharing their learning as well as trying new foods, storytelling and learning Irish poetry. Our visitors’ knowledge of Ireland was put to the test by our resident quizmasters but with a little help from the brainboxes, they successfully answered the questions! We were also delighted to be taught the Irish dancing quickstep and observe a fantastic performance from Miss Brownlie. All in all, a great success! Well done primary three! Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona daoibh ó P3!
I would like to offer my congratulations to the children who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation at St. Margaret Mary’s on 12th March. It was a very special morning for the children. For those who have not yet received the Sacrament, preparation is ongoing in class and we hope to have a date confirmed for St. Margaret’s, Davidsons Mains soon.Having covered measure and money in numeracy and maths, the children have started learning their times tables and are really excited about it. We have had lots of fun in the classroom making songs and having competitions to try remember our tables. The children are continuing to use the interactive whiteboard for maths games in order to support their learning.
The children of St. David’s are very excited with the launch of our school library. The class are really enjoying visiting it each Wednesday. Alongside this, World Book Day was a great success and the children in P3 are eager to read more and more. We are still working on our reading books as well as short novels.
As you are aware, each class in St. David’s has chosen a competition or event to raise money for our Lenten fundraising programme. Primary 3 will be hosting an Irish food sale on St. Patrick’s Day (17th March). Any cakes of any description would be greatly appreciated. Parents are invited into the class to visit our Cultural Café on the Thursday from 2.30pm-3pm.
The children really can’t wait to take part in the other class’s upcoming events.
Wishing you a very Happy Easter.
