Wagtails

Welcome to Wagtails!

Welcome to the Wagtail class. Mrs Willett and Mrs Brereton are our teachers in the Wagtail class. We also have Mrs Humpherston as our teaching assistant to help us with our learning.

 

Mrs Willett is currently on maternity leave and Mrs Brereton is teaching us full time until she returns to school.

 

In Wagtails class we have daily phonics, literacy and maths sessions and children are actively encouraged to practice the skills they are learning at home by reading with family or by engaging with homework. Participating in home learning is rewarded with stickers and a dip in the treat basket at the end of term!

 

We have 6 half-termly topics this year:

  • Were grandma and grandpa’s toys more fun than an IPad?
  • Why wouldn’t a dinosaur make a good pet?
  • What makes a good bridge for the 3 Billy Goats Gruff?
  • Why would Beegu like to live in Billinghay?
  • The Great Fire of London
  • Which plants would Little Red Riding Hood find in the school grounds?
  •  

The children have had a super start to the year, and we are looking forward to showing off our learning to the rest of the school and to the families.

 

Mrs Willett

I am in my seventh year of teaching and I’m very pleased to be teaching Year 1 for my sixth year at Billinghay CE Primary School. My favourite subjects to teach are Maths, Science, Phonics and PE. I like to make my lessons exciting by linking the learning to the children’s interests and by creating practical opportunities to experience learning in a range of different ways.

 

Mrs Brereton

I am a Newly Qualified Teacher, but many of the children will be familiar with me after 2 years supporting learning in Kingfisher class and one year of teaching Year 4/5 Penguins with Mrs Pool while I worked towards my qualification.

I love teaching phonics and early reading/ writing, and I also enjoy having the opportunity to allow children to continue to learn through play!

When not in school, I am kept busy with four children of my own. We enjoy gardening, walking and planning adventures together. We have a 1 year old Sprocker Spaniel called Cooper, so we can often be found walking him on a beach or through the fields around our home.
