Holbeach St Marks Primary School


Welcome to Cuba Class

P.E. is on a Monday and a Wednesday. 


The children are heard read as much as possible in school, this may be individual reading, group reading or during phonic lessons. Reading books are changed during the day as required, please ensure your child reading record is signed when you have read at home.


We use the phonics scheme Jolly Phonics. Please follow the link to see more information and some key terminology.



Year One have daily reading. Maths activities are set weekly alongside spellings. Spelling tests take place on a Friday.

Reception children, alongside their reading, choose a task from a termly homework grid and evidence is recorded in their homework book. This can be a photograph, piece of writing or drawing.

Topic and Learning Focus

Welcome to Carnival!

This half term, we’ll dress up in bright clothes, hang out the bunting and enjoy a carnival party! Afterwards, we’ll write about our carnival experiences, compose carnival poetry, create vibrant dances and play carnival rhythms. We’ll explore famous legends, make Brazilian carnival treats and scour non-fiction books for fascinating facts.

As part of our Science work the children will be learning about plants.


The children’s profiles are on tapestry and you can load observations from home to complement our classroom observations. It is great to see the children succeeding in both settings.
