Dear Year 5,
Today, we would like you to answer the question: if you could only eat one item of food for the rest of your life, what would you eat? We are excited to hear your answers!
We would also like you to bring along a photo of you as a baby if you have one. Do not worry if you don’t have one to hand.

Each day this week, we are looking at different themes within our weekly project ‘This is Me’. Today’s theme is My family history. In yesterday’s staff video, we found out lots about the adult’s family. You can watch the video here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVFit4v004E Today we would like to find out about yours.
For English today, we would like you to choose a member of your family and write a biography about them. What is a biography?
A biography is an account of a person’s life written by someone else. It should not be confused with an autobiography, which is a person’s own account of their life, written by him or her.
To write a biography you will need to conduct some research to start with and ask the chosen person several questions before you can start writing your biography. Some of the questions you could ask include:
Look at the comparisons between their life and yours.
A checklist to make sure you had included all of the features needed. T2-E-1614-Features-of-a-Biography-Writing-Checklist
Finally, a template that you could use to help structure and layout your biography. Template
Today we would like to you have a go at scaling.
Scaling can be found in lots of places and one that you will all probably be familiar with is in recipes.
If you need 100g to make 2 brownies…how many grams of flour do you need to make 4 brownies? 200g!! The number of brownies has doubled, so you also need to double the amount of flour.

Sheets: Animal scaling with answers
1 star/2 star/3 star differentiation can be found on the first sheet. The sheets go up in difficulty.
Today’s project task is a mixture of history and French.
A few years ago, Mr Thomas’ Aunt created a family tree for his family. This dates back to 1860 when his Great Great Great Grandfather was born and has 6 generations on it. Today, we would like you to have a go at creating your own family tree.
You may need to speak to parents and Grandparents to find out about your Great-Grandparents and Great Aunts and Uncles etc. How many generations can you trace back to? Whilst speaking to them, ask them how they are? Why are you asking them about your family history? There are lots of websites and apps where you can trace them, however, we have looked into lots of these and you need to have a subscription to them so you may want to go as far back as you can go without online resources.
Be creative with how you design it.
Once you have created your family tree take a look at the powerpoint which goes through family members in French. On your tree, underneath, have a go at putting the name of the relation in French eg. underneath my brother I would write mon frère. French-Family-Members-Powerpoint_ver_2
Can you match the relations to the pictures from the family tree on the last page? There is no need to print off the sheets. There are 1 star, 2 star and 3 star sheets. French family activity sheet
Stay safe and be kind,
Miss Martin and Mr Thomas
