Welcome to Mrs Reeves's and Mrs Baillie's Class page

Our teaching assistant is Ms Jackson.

Have a look at all of the exciting things we will be learning about this half-term.

Year 1 children were very excited last week, as they received a special postcard from Cliff Richard!  Mrs Hennell is friends with Cliff's manager, and told her that we had been learning about Cliff performing at The Regal in 1958, before he became world-famous!

As part of our topic work, we have taken part in a 2 day DT project, designing and making doll's house furniture, which our grandparents might have played with when they were small.  

We began our topic of 'Why Were the Sixties Swinging?' by comparing music from the 1960s to music from today.  We listened to some vinyl records and had a boogie!

We had great fun today looking at our teddies, which had been dressed up for Halloween - we also tried to make scary faces!

The Oxford Owl website has lots of really useful videos to help you with Phonics at home.  Click the link below to have a look at a helpful video which shows you how to correctly pronounce all 44 sounds.


Here is our class timetable.
