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 Veterans 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 I was just doing the same thing as yesterday just driving my  ship and drinking coffee yum. Suddenly I hear a bang something hits  the ship. Then I  hear yelling “Look out the back window.” I say “oh no pirates are coming  now.” I just stand there because there is nothing to do. They go into the kitchen. They come into where I am.  

The captain of the pirates comes up to me and says “Do you know who I am? I am the new captian. Give me the keys, THE KEYS !” He put the key in and turns it.But he does not know that it makes the robot go on. Then the pirates opened a shipping container but there is nothing in them.

Then  the robot sneakily climbs right out of the container and goes behind the pirates back. One spits on one pirate and the robot scares and trips the pirates over.

“Boo” another robot scares a pirate.  Than one robot goes into the bit where the captain drives the boat. The robot grabs 2 pirates and throw them out the door. Then he taps the pirates leader on the back and makes him look out the window. All his people are are on the ground.  Then a robot takes the  hat and key and gives in back to the real captian.
