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

Celebrations and Festivals




Welcome back after half term, it is lovely to have you back safe. This term we are focusing on various celebrations and festivals that are celebrated around the world. We have already been learning about 'Bonfire Night' and how we need to keep safe.


We will also think and talk about Remembrance Sunday and how it is a special time to remember the brave soldiers who help us to keep safe.



It is very important that we learn about how other cultures celebrate their special times of the year and we are going to be learning about Diwali very soon.

This is known as the 'Festival of Light'




   Later on this term we will be practising for our Nativity performance linked to Christmas. We will be out sending out lines and costume details. Please can you practise these at home with your child to enable them to feel confident in their performance. We thank you for your continued support.
