Welcome to Falcon Class
My name is Mr Webber and I am now in my Fourth year at CPS. As well as being lucky enough to be the year 6 teacher I am also Maths subject lead and help oversee the development of Maths across the school. Outside of school I have a young son called Oliver who is just about to start Year 2 this year and a rather gorgeous pet Hamster called Eliza. My wife is also a teacher in secondary.
Other adults who you will be seeing this year are the wonderful Mrs Watters. As I'm sure you already know Mrs Watters is amazingly supportive and we are very lucky to have her in Hawthorn this year.
In Falcon class the aim of all our learning is focused around making you, as learners, confident and independent. At the end of year 6 you will be learners who are confident and willing to try out new skills and ideas. The key to learning in year 6 particularly, is about developing a mindset that will allow you to take risks in the knowledge that if something goes wrong, then it's not anything to worry about, rather it is a brilliant opportunity to learn something and try again. You will never fail at anything if you don't give up on it.
What to wear and bring to school
All students should come to school in school uniform and with a school bag. Students should pack a water bottle, hat and any pencil case/stationery that they may want to use. Please make sure all personal items are labelled with your child’s name. On PE days, we are asking children to come into school in PE kits rather than school uniform.
Termly timetable and homework
Your child will receive a timetable at the start of each term. This will also be sent out and put on the class web page. Homework will be slightly different this year and will be aimed at helping support the transition to secondary with a different pitch to the homework. A letter will follow on this within the first week.
End of the day
The school day ends at 3.10pm – if your child walks home a letter needs to filled in and sent in to school to let the school know that is okay for your child to walk home. Please note that permission for independent walking ends at the end of the academic year and new permission will be needed for the following year.
If you have any queries about the daily routine or what your child is learning then do not hesitate to get in touch. Please refer to our email addresses on the first page. We will always endeavour to reply to you as soon as possible, occasionally this may take longer than we would like but we will always aim to get back to you within 24 hours during the school week.
