As the music is playing reflect on what having patience means. Do you have patience and understanding for the people around you? How can you be more tolerant and understanding of others?
Remember you do not have to copy out all of the questions, especially if they use complicated diagrams. Your answers and any workings out are enough.

Listen back to chapter 2 (from 4mins 48secs in part 1 to the end of part 2) if you need to.
- The description of the Scrap Yard is very detailed and creates a clear image of what it would be like to be there for the reader. Imagine you are illustrating a page for a graphic novel and use the language from the story to create your own picture of the scrap yard.
See an example below of what the Stormbreaker graphic novel looks like. You might recognise the scene!
Our topic in RE is memorial sacrifice.
Today we are going to think about memories and how we remember certain objects, people, events or places.
Firstly read the following story and tell your adult the answers to the questions below.
‘Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge There once was a small boy called Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, and what’s more, he wasn’t very old either. His house was next door to an old people’s home and he knew all the people who lived there.
He liked Mrs. Jordan who played the organ. He listened to Mr. Hosking who told him scary stories. He played with Mr. Tippet who was crazy about cricket. He ran errands for Ms. Mitchell who walked with a wooden stick. He admired Mr. Drysdale who had a voice like a giant, but his favourite person of all was Ms. Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper because she had four names, just as he did.
He called her Ms. Nancy and told her all his secrets. One day Wilfred Gordon heard his mother and father talking about Ms. Nancy. “Poor old thing” said his mother “Why is she a poor old thing?” asked Wilfrid Gordon. “Because she’s lost her memory” said his father. “It isn’t surprising” said his mother “after all she is 96.” “What’s a memory?” asked Wilfrid Gordon? “He was always asking questions. “It is something you remember” said his father, but Wilfrid Gordon wanted to know more, so he called Mrs. Jordan who played the organ.
“What’s a memory?” he asked. “Something warm, my child, something warm.” He called Mr. Hosking who told him scary stories. “What’s a memory?” he asked. “Something from long ago, my lad, something from long ago.” He called on Mr. Tippet who was crazy about cricket.
“What’s a memory?” he asked. “Something that makes you cry, my boy, something that makes you cry.” He called on Ms. Mitchell who walked with a wooden stick. “What’s a memory?” he asked. “Something that makes you laugh, my darling, something that makes you laugh.” He called on Mr. Drysdale who had a voice like a giant. “What’s memory?” he said. “Something as precious as gold, young man, something as precious as gold.”
So Wilfrid Gordon went home again to look for memories for Ms. Nancy because she had lost her own. He looked for the shoebox of shells he had found long ago last summer and put them gently in a basket. He found the puppet on strings which always made everyone laugh and he put that in the basket too. He remembered, with sadness, the medal which his grandfather had given him and he placed it gently next to the shells. Next he found his football which was precious as gold, and last of all on the way to Ms. Nancy’s he went in to the hen house and took a fresh warm egg from under a hen.
Then Wilfrid Gordon called on Mr. Nancy and gave her each thing one by one. “What a strange, dear child, to bring all these wonderful things.” Thought Ms. Nancy. Then she started to remember. She held the warm egg and told Wilfrid Gordon about the tiny speckled blue eggs she had once found in a birds nest in her aunt’s garden. She put a shell to her ear and remembered going to the beach by train long ago and how hot she had felt in her button up boots. She touched the medal and talked sadly about the big brother she had loved who had gone to war and never returned. She smiled at the puppet on strings and remembered the one she had shown her sister and how she had laughed with a mouthful of porridge. She bounced the football to Wilfrid Gordon and remembered the day she had met him and all the secrets they had told.
And the two of them smiled and smiled because Ms. Nancy’s memory had been found again by a small boy who wasn’t very old either.’
- Why was Miss Nancy, Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge’s favourite person?
- What kind of memories did the people in the home have?
- What did the memory basket do for Miss Nancy?
- Why was it important?
Now let’s think about how we keep memories alive at home, in school and in our community. Write and illustrate your answers in your home leaning book.
- Who is remembered in Folkestone? How are they remembered?
- Who is remembered in your family? How do you remember them?
- Who is remembered in your church? How are they remembered?
- What events are remembered in our town? How do we celebrate these memories?
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
