WAL about Somalia.

Make a copy, rename and start your writing on your copy.

Click on the url below and watch the short clip.
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 a big robot I here a big thump I'm not scared. I am in my big red,blue,rusty,old,brown shipping container. I hear a thump, ahh, I hear them say” Hey you know who I am? I am the new captain” he said. “ Give me the key, GIVE ME THE KEY “ “ok here “ the captain said.

I got up and a man opened the container he said “Where is it?  Where is the money?” I hopped out and I said “Boo”  he said “Aaaaaaaa” He jumped of the ship “Haha” I said.

I got the key and it was as hot as the sun. I saw a bunch of men laughing and I threw them away. They said ahh I tapped the new captains back and he was like “ahh” I showed him the door and I said “Get out!” he was stupid, ha get out.

I gave the man’s hat back it was as white as snow. I said  “Let's go in the containers now.”  We ran Into the containers and went to sleep it was as soft as a pillow that feels really nice I said to myself.
