Week 1 100 WC

It was a stormy night, I was going out to sea. I was going for my country for the war. Five hours later boom!  Hurry, Hurry! Boom the blood was as crimson as a poppy. I frantically shouted to my brother.  I saw my brother and he told me if I die to please tell my mum and dad that  I love them.

It started to get misty and I could not see.  BOOM!  What was that?  There was a big hole with one grave. Luke was carved on the grave, 2018 that's now, I was confused. I got shot twice.

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.
