Reception - Snowy Owls


Welcome to Snowy Owls page!



I'm Mr Bailey, the teacher of Snowy Owls!


I live in the local area and I’ve just turned 30! I love cooking, gardening and bike riding in my spare time. I have lots of experience of working with young children. I studied early education at college and I won an award for being ‘student of the year!’ I have been at Perton First for a year and I love it here! Reception is my favourite year to teach because the children are so enthusiastic and willing to learn—just like me! I’m very funny too.


I feel so proud to be able to teach phonics and it is my favourite time of the day! It is such an important skill to learn and I always make it fun and exciting. You’ll be amazed how quickly the children learn their letters and sounds. At Perton First the safety and happiness of the children is our priority and the staff really care about everybody's wellbeing. We do a lot of learning through play so please rest assured that our school is a fun place to be. Please take a look around my classroom. smiley

Our Current Reception Class!




Our current topic is 'Under the Sea' and 'Ahoy There'. The children are so excited to read non-fiction texts and retell some amazing facts about sea creatures. The children will have an opportunity to write a letter from the rainbow fish and add and subtract using a number line. We will complete the year by transforming into pirates, Arrrr!!! The children love the game "Buried Treasure" in phonics, finding the real words and alien words, let's hope we find some real gold! We also have a really exciting day planned dressed up as Pirates! (More information on that soon)


We are always here to help if you need it, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
