IMPORTANT EVENTS IN THE RAILWAY CHILDREN


1 WHEN MOTHER FALLS ILL ( CHAPTER 3 )
Mother falls ill. Peter fetches Dr Forrest. The doctor gives the children a list of food that their mother needs. Mother says they have no money to buy the things on the list. The children write a message on a white sheet for the old gentleman on the 9.15 train. It tells him to look out for something at the station. Phyllis gives the old gentleman a letter. The letter explains what happened to the children’s mother and asks the old gentleman for help to get the things on the doctor’s list. That evening, Perks delivers a large box to the children’s house. Inside the box are all the things in the list plus some extra things and a letter from the old gentleman.

2.       SAVING THE TRAIN ( CHAPTER 5 )
 One day, the children took a walk along the top of the hill beside the railway line. Suddenly, they heard a noise and saw half the hillside crashed down onto the railway line below. The children realised that the 11.29 a.m train was in danger. They used the girls’ red petticoat to make six flags to warn the train.  The train came down the track too fast. Bobbie was afraid that it would not see them. She ran onto the line waving two flags. The train stopped just twenty metres away from Bobbie.

 3. A BIRTHDAY FOR PERKS ( CHAPTER 6 )
The children asked to have the cakes on Thursday. They wanted to make a birthday tea for Perks. Peter wanted to ask everybody in the village to help them give Perks a nice birthday. Not everyone was kind. Old Mrs Ransome said no one remembered her birthday so she did not want to help but many gave them all kinds of things to Perks. The next day, Bobbie and Phyllis gave Mrs. Ransome roses and a handkerchief for her birthday. On Thursday, the children went around to collect presents the people had promised. At three o’clock, the children took the presents and the pram to Perks’ house. When Perks came home and saw the pram and the presents, he was angry. He thought people would laugh at him for being poor and needing their things. Bobbie explained that the people wanted to give him the presents because they liked him. Perks calmed down. He was glad that his neighbours thought so kindly of him. The children stayed for tea.

There are a few more important events, identify them.
NOTE: You must remember the important events in the novel. This is because you need to support your answer with examples and the examples are the events. For example, the question on the character you like best. If you choose Bobbie as the character you like best because she is brave, to support your reason you need to give evidence ( or event in the novel ). The evidence in the novel can be "when she and her siblings saved the train".

  8. Kalau dia tanya ( Write The Most Meaningful Event Provide Evidence ) tu camne ye ?


    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Soalan yang ini sama juga dengan soalan " write the most interesting event" @ " write about an event that you like best".
      First, choose an event you think meaningful. For example ' the children saved the train". Describe the event with elaboration and details. Then, you have to give evidence why you think the event you have chosen is a meaningful event. You can write , it is meaningful because the children although still young, have the courage to save the train from the landslide. Not many people are this brave, to risk their own lives to save other people. This is shown by the three siblings who had reacted fast to the situation and Bobbie who ran onto the railway line to warn the train.

    1. One reason why it is difficult to get sample answer on the character you dislike is, most of the characters in the novel have positive qualities. Anyway, I have come out with a sample answer on this question. Take a read. Best of luck for your PMR.

  23. Nur Fatihah, congrats dear..you missed only 1 mark, it's all right. I don't see your essay so I can't really give precise comment but I think this is most probably due to grammar errors or punctuation errors you made. So, spend a few minutes editing your essay so that you can minimise your errors or produce free-error essay.

  32. teacher what is the importance message in this novel ?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Azeem, important message is actually what the writer wants to highlight in the novel, what the writer is trying to tell the readers. In other words what you gain from the novel, the values learnt. So, in this novel, the message can be " the importance of family love" , " about kindness and compassion"
