Platypus Class


Hello and welcome to Platypus Class!


In our class we have 25 children with Miss Turnbull class teacher and Mr Howell classroom support.


Helpful Information

- Monday is our PE day and we come to school in our PE kit. Outdoor or indoor kit, it is up to you but please remember to wear your trainers!

- Reading is such an important skill to have so please bring your reading book and reading record into school everyday so I can hear your amazing reading. 

- Although your backpacks are lovely, they're a little too big for our pegs and end up on the floor so please bring your blue book bag instead.

Home work is due in on a Wednesday and will be handed back out on a Friday. 

Water bottles to be brought into school every day.


Library is every Friday - please remember your library book.
