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.

One day the sun was rising at 6:30am the sea was crashing against the boat and we were still sleeping in a pitch black container. We woke up  we were waiting for the smelly pirate to come on board this rust red boat to try and steal heap of our  stuff but they don't know it's us. Then I hear them boarding the ship and then I hear them getting their guns,knifes,and also their fists.

They were going into all the rooms in the ship and pointing there guns at the pirates telling them to get down on their knees. Then the captain of the pirate’s told them to look in the containers and then we had to get really ready for battle.

He opened the door of the container.They opened  the door and I was standing right there in the pitch black.They couldn't see me until I came out then all my brothers and sisters came out too.I stood in the middle of all the bright red containers and as blue as the sky containers.Then all the pirates stepped back and I came out I said “BOO” they all ran and I caught one of them. All my brother and sisters tripped them up and punched them and also shot a gun at them.They were scared so they got down on her knees and put there hands behind their back.

Now I have to go and deal with the captain. Well that is a pirate.I went up there and I tapped on his stinky old rusty vest and I said look out there.He looked out there and he said with his smelly breath “WOW”. Then he went down there and he said “let's go away from these sico robots”.

They left the rusty red ferry and took there stinky old bodies back to there home town.I like being mean but every once and awhile I get to be mean.I love my job I am an indestructible robot”YAH”. We told them “go home don't come back you stinky smelly pirates.”
