Rivers&Rainforests Home Learning Matrix

It's Matrix Time!!!

Key Information

The project starts today! All the home learning is due in on Friday 21st March. This is six home learning weeks in total. You need to earn a minimum of 60 raindrops. The amount of raindrops earned is shown after each task. Please keep talking to your teacher about how you are doing. It is a good idea to start with some smaller tasks and to get some points earned before starting on the bigger projects. As always, if you have your own ideas, check them with your teacher, the options on this grid are not the only ones. Good luck and have fun!

Research is good, but any writing needs to be in your own words! This is very important!

Please prepare a folder or book to keep any paper based tasks in. Decorate it in a rivers and or a rainforest style. It is OK to email your teacher any powerpoints, photostories etc that you want to share with the class. However all your home learning must also be printed and stored in the folder. This is your responsibility!

As well as the huge rainforest-like diversity of choices in the matrix itself, this time you also have to...

Choose one area of our Rivers and Rainforests theme that interests you. Research and prepare a presentation to the class (to be given in the last two weeks of term). It should be between 2-3 minutes long. More information to follow!

Wind in the Willows

Published Tuesday, February 04, 2014.
Last updated: Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Your home learning tonight is the carry on with the Wind in the Willows piece of writing you started in class on Monday. It is due in on Thursday, and I would like a published copy (computerised or loose leaf paper) ready to add to our Wind in the Willows display. Please print finished pieces of work at home if you can. Some ‘ageing’ would be good (Wind in the Willows was written around one hundred years ago).

These were your choices:

•             Write a speech that Toad would have given to the banquet at Toad Hall had he been allowed.

•             Focus on the very final scene of the film (not in the original text) in which Toad sees a plane. Write the next scene about Toad’s new fad of flying.

•             Choose a particular scene from the story. Write a play script focusing on this scene.

•             Write a wanted poster for Toad. The wanted poster should answer these key questions (in two, full paragraphs). What crimes is Toad wanted for? How would a member of the public recognise Toad?

•             Write a newspaper article about Toad’s antics.

•             Persuasive letter to Toad from….

Great River Research

Published Tuesday, January 08, 2013.
Last updated: Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Your task is to research and produce and A4 computerised fact sheet on a major river in your home country (or the Chao Phraya if you would prefer, seeing as we all live in Thailand). Alternatively present your research as a hand written leaflet.

This is your home learning for today and tomorrow. It is due on Friday.

Things to find out:

  • Where does it start? (Its source)
  • Where does it end? (Its mouth)
  • How long is it?
  • Does it flow through more than one country?
  • Does it have any interesting features? (Like the Grand Canyon formed by the Colorado river)
  • What wildlife lives in and around it?
  • Anything else interesting you would like to include...

Your fact sheet should contain text and pictures and possibly a map of the river. Remember to use the formal style of writing that we used in our non chronological reports last term.

This link shows some example fact sheets:
