Have a good week – Mrs Isaac
Friday 12th June – It has been lovely being able to speak / see most of you this week as it has made the class seem alot closer and back together. I have been working on setting up our “Google classrooms” where we will hopefully be able to video call each other.
While speaking to you this week it has been great to hear what you have been up to. Oak Academy seems to be working well for some of you while others are appreciating the creative nature of the new curious curriculum theme.
Beth emailed me a poem she had written and I was able to print it out and pop it on the display board. Can you spot it? Have you got anything for the board?
Harry and Nancy have their own clever way of diplaying their work. What does your home school look like?
Kyron was busy with his Oak maths today: as were many of you when I called this morning. Oscar read me a page of a fantastic story he is writing and he has promised to let the rest of us read it when it is finished. Ella told me about her gardening. Elliott is becoming a master at Scratch. Ollie has been baking. There was lots of news that I loved hearing about.
Have a good weekend everyone and look out for updates on “Google Classrooms” next week. Mrs Isaac.

A quick reminder to you as well, please could you send me your answers to the little questionaire that I emailed out to you last week and your letters to Five villages.
So let’s see what we have all been up to this week in our gallery below…
Ollie and his mum used this website to find out about Anne Frank – why don’t you have a look too?
Great work Mango Class, keep the photo’s coming. How many Y5’s are going to take part in the alternative PGL? Perhaps Y6 could join them too… See the link from yesterday for details…
Have a good afternoon – Mrs Isaac
Tuesday 12th May – Attention Y5! Alternative / virtual PGL!
Please see the attached file with a fun idea to try and make up for the fact that PGL has been postponed…
Monday 11th May – well year 6’s what should you have been doing this week? That’s right … It would have been SATS week! I wonder how you feel about not completing them? Happy? Sad? It feels strange for me not having the traditional SATS breakfast with all of you.
So how many of you celebrated VE day in style? It was certainly lovely weather all weekend…
Virtual School Games challenge this week is Football! Here are details of the challenge. I know some of you have already taken part, so well done you! Let’s get some more Mango’s results on the leader board for Mango Class.
I have some great examples of home learning emailed through today. Thank you for all of these.
More of us have been sharing our home learning with our siblings. Here is a video that Lily and Peggy have been busy making about Anne Frank. The video is great; well done to both of you.
Will has made a video about his favourite car – would some more of you like to send me videos you have made? (Please get permission from your adults first though).

Thank you – Mrs Isaac
Wednesday 6th May – Good morning everyone! Thank goodness the sunshine has returned this week; I think everyone had had enough of the rain last week. I have a couple of updates for you today…
The people at Safety in Action have emailed this over to me; have a look as it may interest you especially if you have been out on your bike more often recently.
Beth has written a fantasic diary entry about experiencing a bombing raid, have a read and maybe “magpie” some of her fantastic ideas. Well done Beth!
So as you are probably aware this Friday is VE Day and we are celebrating 75 years since the end of WWII in Europe. In more normal circumstances there would have been lots of celebrations going on around school and home where we would have come together to commenorate this day. However, this year we are not allowed to meet up with friends and family but we are being encouraged to mark this special occasion at home. Are you planning to celebrate? How will you do it? Here is one idea:
Why not send me your pictures of how you celebrated VE Day? How will you remember this day in history? The pictures would make a great gallery.
Please continue to send me your work / photos/ videos as I really enjoy seeing what you have been up to – Mrs Isaac
Here are some of today’s work I have recieved – Thank you Mango Class!
Ollie has been researching WWII rationing and Finley has written to Five villages to learn about their experiences of WWII. Well done you two!
Monday 4th May – Good Moring Mango class and I hope you are well and had a great weekend. As promised the new home learning has been uploaded. Please have a look at it and I look forward to seeing your results later in the week. Remember any questions please email me.
Just in this morning some extra resources about VE day
Why not ask your families about what they know / remember about your own family and WWII? Maybe you could email or write to some family members who might have their own memories…
Have a good week Mango Class – Mrs Isaac
Friday 1st May – Well it’s a new month and what a difference in weather we are having! What has everyone been up to with the rain this week? Lots of you have been busy working on your school work, spending time with your families, taking on projects around your houses and gardens judging by my inbox.
I have received so many great photos of your week, Mrs Piggott and I have enjoyed looking them all. This week we have been in school and I have had the chance to talk to some of you; it was lovely hearing what you had been up to. Harrison told me about what he had found in his garden, Cody said a quick “Hello”, Summer‘s Grandad dropped lots of work off from Summer.
I enjoy receiving emails from you, today Kyron emailed me his fantastic WWII project, have a read and see what you can learn from it!
Here is Kyron‘s WWII project.
Here is Cody’s review of Good night Mr Tom
and last but by no way least Harrison and Mick leading the Thank you NHS clap. I really enjoyed this!
Have a lovely weekend mango class and keep sending me your photos and videos. There will be new home learning landing on Monday to keep you all busy!
Fingers crossed the sun comes back out! Mrs Isaac
Wednesday 29th April – Buenas Dias, Hola. Que tal? I have been looking at the brilliant BBC Bitesize KS2 website today and found out they teach Spanish! Perhaps you could have a go at practising speaking in spanish today? Who can remember what we’ve learnt in class?
I have recieved great home learning pictures over the past two days which are added to the gallery below. Beth has been busy finding out about and celebrating Anzac day and if you read her work you will too. Liam has been busy practising his goalkeeping skills ready for the school team when we come back. Elliott has made some delicous looking bread. Kyron has been helping his younger siblings with their home learning. Well done to those of you who have kept me updated.

I have been sent work from Lily – Rose over the weekend which I’ll add to our gallery. Well done Lily. Will did his clap for carers in his scout uniform this week as it was also St Georges day. Did you join in with the clap this week?

Tuesday 21st April – Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth! I wonder what other important dates there are this week? Have you been clapping the NHS on a Thursday evening? If some ofyou are in the scouts or guides you may well have been asked to wear your uniform this week when you clap; do any of you know why? Perhaps you could email me with your ideas…Maybe we could add some photos of you clapping this week to our class gallery?
Why not take a look at https://hourofcode.com/uk/learn today? There are lots of different fun ICT projects for you to get stuck into!

Monday 20th April – New activities for the new term!
Monday 20th April – Welcome to term 5! I hope you all managed to enjoy the Easter weekend in the glorious weather. How many Easter eggs did you eat? I hope you have had a look at the new home learning for this term? Harry has, as he has sent in his review of Goodnight Mr Tom already!
I have posted a useful link to a maths website that has designed home learning organised into year groups. These may need to be printed but some can be copied out into your home learning books and there are answers included so you can check your work! If you decide to continue to use espresso then the topics this week should include Angles and Lines (lower), Measuring angles (upper), Geometry – position and shape (lower and then upper) – remember you could write down any facts you have found out and email them to me.
I am looking forward to seeing your new learning soon.
Stay safe and keep active
Thursday 9th April – Another lovely sunny day, hope you are all doing something fun? Here is a competition for you to enter if you would like to:
Spring card competition for vulnerable people
Calling all artists and designers…
East Sussex has asked primary school pupils across the county to design a spring card with a message of hope and goodwill that can be sent to people that are feeling lonely and isolated at this time.
The designs should be emailed into school in the first instance where the top 5 designs will be sent off to be printed then sent out to those who need to be cheered up.
Come on Icklesham there are plenty of budding artist amongst us; let’s see what we can do!
Wednesday 8th April – Good morning from Mrs Isaac and Mrs Piggott! We are in school this week along with Mrs Maskell holding the fort and making sure the children that have to come into school are looked after.
Mrs Piggott enjoyed looking at the home learning that you have sent to me over the previous two weeks; I wonder if those of you that haven’t sent your learning could do that today or tomorrow while I am in school so I can post it into our gallery?
After Thursday we are going to be taking a weeks holiday (especially as it is both our birthdays!) and so I won’t be answering emails until Monday 20th April but I will be looking forward to hearing from you from then on wards.
The home learning 2 should be completed by 1st May, if you are having trouble accessing any of it please contact the school by phone and someone will be able to help / get a message to me.
Lastly we’d both like to wish you and your families a very HAPPY EASTER!!!
P.S. Just in from Chartwells who make our school lunches:
Introducing our brand new Youtube Channel, The Super Yummy Kitchen! We have created some short, snappy cook-along videos for children, where they can create fun, nutritious snacks using store-cupboard ingredients.
This offers a novelty opportunity to get hands on with some vibrant recipes that are also child friendly. Who doesn’t love the sound of unicorn hummus, or sunshine toast?
Our videos can be followed at home by subscribing to our channel (click here for our youtube). POST a picture of your children’s creations online, and we will choose a winner of the week in The Super Yummy Kitchen! (Don’t forget to @Chartwells in!)
Monday 6th April – Good Morning Mango Class! Wasn’t that a super sunny weekend, did you all manage to get out in the garden? I wonder who had a BBQ? As promised, today I am going to upload the next installment of home learning activities …
As Mrs Robinson said in her letter last week, it should have been the Easter holidays this week and next so don’t feel like you have to start this now however if having a routine is working for you and your family then by all means start the activities.
The new terms curious Curriculum is “‘I wonder……….what was it like to be a child in WWII”?
I look forward to sharing your work with others on here soon…
Friday 3rd April – The end of another week and a new revamp to the Mango Class page. I have had so many lovely photos to share each day that it’s taking too long to scroll down to see them all. From today, I will add new posts and photos to the top of the page so you can keep up to date on what we’ve all been up to.
I see that quite a few of you are racing through your spelling books so when I am in school next week I will email those of you that have requested the next sets / books. In the meantime why don’t you try some of these from the statutory list for years 5 and 6?
If you like minecraft you maybe interested to know that Mojang have launched an education edition that can be downloaded for free (Search minecraft education edition). It has many different challenges that can be played. Please check with your adult before you download it but Will had fun on it this morning. Let me know how you get on?
Have a good weekend
Morning message from Mrs Isaac
– 2nd April
Wellbeing and Online Safety
Please remember it is important to look after your own wellbeing while we aren’t at school. I bet some of you have been feeling a little bit strange, worried or even a bit frightened about what is going on in the news and wondering why we aren’t at school. Remember to talk to an adult if you are worried. (Grown-ups please check the home page for recommended links to support your child). Why not try Cosmic Kids Yoga at home to help calm your feelings. The pack in the link below also has lots of activities to help you with your feelings.
You may be using the internet a lot more too so it’s important to remember how to stay safe online. Work through the Online Safety section on Espresso (under computing) where there are lots pf activities to remind you of how to stay safe online. Perhaps you could teach a family member about being safe online?
(Grown-ups please check the home page for recommended links to support your child).
Look out for the next home learning coming soon

Welcome to Mango Class
We are a class of year 5 and 6 children who enjoy making our learning challenging and fun!
Homework is usually set each week. We also encourage children to read regularly at home and practise their times tables up to x12. Having a secure grasp of the times tables makes a big difference to children’s mathematical success. There are lots of ways to practise them, for example saying them, writing them down and online games.
The children should have their PE kit in every day because we do a range of PE sessions across the week.
Mango Class are cooking again
On Friday 31st January the children in Mango Class were cooking again, which the help of Mrs Piggott. The children had to make and cook pitta bread and then a dip to go with it. This time Mrs Barry was our taste tester, she said all of them tasted nice and even went back for seconds.
