Platypus

WELCOME TO PLATYPUS - MS KATE FOSTER


I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our parents, guardians and of course our SUPER students who will be part of class Platypus for 2021.

My name is Ms Foster and I will be teaching your child this year on Tuesday-Friday. Mrs Murphy will be teaching the children on Mondays, as I am also an Assistant Principal and am kept busy with these duties on Monday. In our class we have 26 students made up of 10 boys and 16 girls. Our classroom is room 5. Our weekly timetable for term 1 looks as follows:

Monday – Mrs Murphy

Homework

Library

Fitness

Technology

Tuesday – wear sports uniform

Stage Sport

Scripture

Wednesday / Thursday

Full days of learning time with no expected interruptions

Friday

Homework due back

Spelling post test

Virtual Assembly (odd weeks)

My goal is to work carefully with your child to help them achieve their best academically, physically, creatively and socially. I will particularly be focused on building independence, resilience and risk taking when learning. I encourage students to ask questions, be curious and embrace their mistakes as they are a sign of learning.

Students are encouraged to develop good self-management skills by taking responsibility for their own belongings. This includes making sure they come to school each day prepared for learning, returning Library books on correct days and completing all homework. It is their job to look after their equipment (stationery), lunchbox, drink bottle, jumper and hat, so please make sure these are clearly labelled.

If you have any concerns, please reach out via DOJO. If you need to change home travel arrangements on any day, please notify the Office (Ph: 4352 1116) as I don’t always get time to read DOJOs throughout the day during teaching time.

I am looking forward to a great 2021 with the students in Playtpus.

Ms Foster
