In what was possibly his first ever assembly at BRGS he opened with the words "I had a strange dream last night. I was spiderman. He then explained what this was all about, and said, "I always knew I was spiderman", and "that is my gift and that is my curse, who am I? I'm spiderman!" This has in fact found out to be true, when he appeared to have a spider hanging from his head in one (anonymous)class.

A level maths should be relatively straight forward for a teacher of Mr Reeves standard but unfortunately he struggles with the basics like counting backwards. One maths lesson he started 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 4, 5!
Although Mr Reeves does not seem to be the next Michael Flatley he sporadically starts dancing when somebody does what he wants, such as factorizing or suggesting the correct algebraic process to use. Also, he once told a maths class to gallop out of the room.
He likes to call maths theories by silly names e.g.
- Billy Binomial
- Polly Pythagoras
- Freddy Friction
