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 the captain then I started to see pirates climb up the ship. Then the pirates started to go down the stairs to the kitchen. Then the pirates tried the amazing soup. The chef started crying after the pirates drank all the amazing soup. I went down stairs again to the machinery. The pirates turned the machines off. The people from the machine told the captain. The the pirates said to the captain give me the keys said the pirates on the ship. Then the pirates started walking over to the red box then the robot came out of it’s big red box then the pirates got pushed away from the robot. Then the robot started to help them. The robot started to trip the pirates up. Then the robot tapped on the pirate shoulder. Then the robots said to look at the window and all of the pirates were hurt. The robot give back the keys from the pirate. The captain drank a cup of coffee and drived the ship again.
