Covid-19 - parent info


Dear RCW

Children in Mrs Winter's class brought home a work pack on Tuesday 6th October to complete over the next two weeks. You can find an electronic copy here;

Home learning for RCW

We have also given you login details for Bug Club. This is a website that offers you a wide range of books to share with your child. Please click here to login to the website using your individual login details. We are able to see your progress and allocate new books when your child has finished their current allocation. 

Each day we would like your child to;

→ Practice writing their name.

→ Access Bug Club and share a story.

→ Choose one activity from the home learning grid to complete.

→ Practice the phonic sounds they know using the Read Write Inc website for support.

Please ensure your child is completing their learning at home during isolation, and email their work in for Mrs Winter to mark in school at

If you have any other questions, please also email the above email address and Mrs Winter will get back to you asap during school hours.


Joining Hands - Autumn 2020

This term, our Joining Hands workshop will be taking place right here on our website!

The focus for this term is Reading as it is such a big priority for us here at Castle Academy. Please take a look at the videos below. The first introduces you to our English leader, Mrs Hemming, who has an important message for you and the second video shows a teacher modelling how you can read with your child.

Click here to see special notices and further material on how to support your child with their reading.

To support reading we teach daily phonics to your child using the Read Write Inc phonics scheme. Click here to see a video of the sounds we teach your child in school. 



Letters from your child's reception teacher:

Please click on your child's teachers name to download a letter for your child from their current class teacher, which will tell them whose class they are in next year. You can then go to the Year 1 page to see a video which has been recorded by their new teacher!
