Starling Class

Starlings Class (LKS2)


Welcome to our Class page!


We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 class taught by Mr Barnard in the morning and Miss Palmer in the afternoon, alongside our teaching assistants Mrs Buckley and Mrs Pascoe.  


Our classroom is a wonderful setting in which to learn.  The children are proud of their work which we are delighted to display. 


In our mixed year group class, the children motivate each other to discover new skills.  Our aim is to make every day challenging and motivating so that the children can become independent and resilient learners who are successful and show an enthusiastic attitude towards learning. We expect all children to try their best and develop a good growth mindset.


Due to covid-19 restrictions, when it is safe to do so we will go on trips and take part in many activities such as assemblies, productions, and take part sporting festivals and competitions against other schools in the Aspire and Richard Lander partnerships. In the past have enjoyed visits to the beach, Falmouth Art Gallery, the Minack Theatre and The Eden Project, and we have competed in a variety of sporting festivals and competitions run by Aspire and the Richard Lander Sports Partnership.


In Starling Class, PE is on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure full PE kits are in school every Wednesday, the children will bring them home on the same day. Weekly assignments to complete at home are posted on Google Classroom on Wednesdays and need to be handed in by the following Monday. Please message me by contacting our school email on for any assistance with homework or to let us know if your child needs extra support. We also have weekly spellings and times tables to learn, these are given to the children on Friday and are tested the following Friday. 


In Starling Class our learning is based on our termly topics.  We have a Phonics lesson every day as well as reading.  The children love to read and alongside reading in school, we expect every child to read for at least 10-15 minutes, to an adult at home. The adult should then write how much the children have read in their reading record and sign to say they have heard them read.


Throughout the year, you can keep up to date by our school bulletin or our regular posts on Twitter and Facebook.

As always, if you have any questions, make contact via email on or telephone one of our secretaries- Mrs Holmes and Mrs Hall.
