Not far off the Somali coast one of the big Vestel cargo vessels is taken over by pirates! Within a split of a second the ship has a new captain, the soup is gone as well as the cargo itself. Will our Vestrons be able to strike back?

Before you start writing think about the setting and imagine you are there.
Somali pirates take over a huge cargo freighter at sea. Things don’t look good for the crew, until the pirates start to investigate the cargo—Vestrons! Engage!

WALT write a narrative through the eyes of one of the crew, or robots.

  • Describe the setting in detail.Think about words to describe the situation, what you see, smell, taste, hear. Try to use words that create the mood.
  • Now…..Write a first person narrative through the eyes of one of the crew or one of the robots. How you are feeling when the boat is invaded by pirates.

Go to this padlet Somali and start writing your ideas, words feelings adjectives similies and metaphors.

Once this is completed you can publish it on your personal blog.

I am traveling on a ship going to another country. Me and my mates were traveling in big red containers, the containers were as rusty as an old bolt. I look through the gap in the side of my container and my friend that was in the container with me looked through the other side.We could see that the pirates were trying to take over the ship we watched for a while to see what they would do. Together me and my friend watched, we saw that they were in the kitchen eating the soup “Yum soup” said the pirate another one had a massive gun in his right hand,and he was eating the carrots. Then they went to the captain and took the keys and started up the boat then they went into the containers and said “Where's all the stuff” So we all got out of the container and told the pirates off. We rolled them up with some paper that we found, We pushed some pirates back onto their ship. So all the pirates were gone. That's the end.
