Reception 2020 - 2021

Miss Jagota

Welcome to Reception!

Reception is taught by Miss Jagota

and supported by Mrs Williams & Mrs Smith

What a fun, busy week we had! The evil peas have continued to cause chaos in the classroom and Reception have been busy creating wanted posters, designing traps and plans to stop them. The children LOVED every minute of the Mega Treat Day. We had fun on the many inflatables, learnt circus skills like juggling, balancing feathers and plate spinning, as well as the dance class and learning to Samba! We ended the day enjoying ice-creams with our Year 5 buddies.

After all the excitement of Mega Treat Day, we are heading into our final week of the school year together. We have another fun filled week ahead of us. We will hopefully finally trap the evil peas, preventing them from causing further mischief in the classroom. We will also be looking back at our year in Reception, thinking about all the fun things we have done and learnt. Reception will also get the opportunity to meet their new Year 1 teachers on Thursday morning.

There may also be another surprise treat for Reception this week… further details to follow. 🙂

Don’t forget:

  • Tuesday - PE kits
  • Thursday - Meet Year 1 teachers (am)
  •                 - Break the rules day
  • Friday - School closes for summer (Reception finish at the earlier time 2.10pm)

We feel it is really important to work closely with parents and carers in order to support your child's learning and development. If you have any questions, worries or need support, please do not hesitate to contact me via the class or school office email address  ( or
