Holbeach St Marks Primary School

St Lucia

Welcome To St Lucia class.

We are made up of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils, who all work exceptionally hard. Our teachers this year are Mrs Massey and Mrs Sage-Gray. Also in class with us, we have Mrs Roffe, our Teaching Assistant, and Miss Candler who is completing her Initial Teacher Training.

As a church school and family, Christianity is at the heart of everything we do – we are all kind, caring and friendly, and we look after each other well (even the adults aren’t so bad!).

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit, which is suitable for outdoors (including appropriate footwear). Your child must also wear their blue federation hoodie. Children with long hair need to have this tied up for these lessons and any jewellery, including earrings, need to be removed. Please also send a coat for playtime.

Please also ensure your child reads at home, daily, as this is vital to them developing their comprehension of text, widening their vocabulary as well as supporting them with their writing.  If your child reads at least three times a week, they will receive a reward of extra playtime on a Friday.  For each day they read at home, their name will also be entered into a draw to win a book which will take place at the end of each half term,.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at stlucia@griffinfederation.co.uk.  This is the quickest way you will get a response from us – during this time, our staff are unable to meet with you informally on the playground.

We want your child to be safe and happy, and enjoy school.


Our topic work, which will be taught in blocks at the end of each half term, will be The Mayans. Your child has received a Knowledge Organiser with key facts and vocabulary. We encourage them to learn this information at home, as well as carry out any additional independent research.
