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 was stuck in this container it was metallic white.I looked through a gap I saw were the captain was where he stared the ship so we couldn't crash.I could hear the dark blue sea crashing against the white shiny boat.It was as shiny as ice at the ice skating rink.I heard this sound it was like arhhhh. It was getting louder and louder I heard loud foot prints.I could smell muddy dirt..I got out of my container out of the top  of it.I hear these things open up my container.I heard them say where's the car's gone.Then all the robots started coming out because  I told them to.We have these things the a bit like walkie talkies.But i’m the leader so if something bad happens i’m the one that has to tell them.I jump off my container and I see these humans their in these ripped, old, faded pants.There tshirts looked almost like they were made out of sheets old dirty ones that were left on streets of Somalia.They had these old hats that didn't even have a top it looked like they just ripped it off.They called themselves pirates.I told the other robots to take care of these ones and check all the other spaces apart from where the captain steers the boat.I start walking up to where the captain is up the stairs.I hide behind a little cabinet.I here a pirate say guess who I am i’m the new captain gemme me the keys.The captain's face was in fare.The pirate repeats it.Give me the keys he takes the shiny grey keys.They were as shiny as gold.The captain runs straight pass me I quickly hide.After I see he's gone I jump.I tap him on the shoulder and turn him around so he can see all his pirates on there knees.I ask him for the keys he gives them to me in fare.I give the captain his keys and he says thank you.We go back in our container and so far they haven't come back.
