Holbeach St Marks Primary School


Our Class Teacher is Mrs Thompson, Miss Horrrax is our Teaching Assistant.


P.E. is on a Thursday and a Friday.  Children need to come in on these days dressed in their P.E. kit.


The children are heard read as much as possible in school; this may be individual reading, group reading or during our phonics lessons. Reading books will be sent home each week; please ensure your child’s reading record is signed when they have read at home. The children will also bring a book home that is slightly more challenging (initialled ‘c’) for you to share with them.


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



Maths is set on a Friday to be returned on a Wednesday.

Year One have daily reading. If your child reads at least three times a week, they will receive a reward of extra playtime on a Friday.

Reception children, alongside their reading, choose a task from our termly topic focus.

Topic and Learning Focus

Each term we will be having a topic week. This term our Topic is Fire! Fire! -based on ‘The Great Fire of London’.

As part of our Science work the children will be learning about materials and seasons.


Our themes this term are God and Creation.


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 environments.
