Year 4 have been reading 'The village that vanished' This powerful story is set in Africa and focuses on the Yao tribe. We have been writing in the role of character Chimwala.
Along the dry, dusty road, came a army of slavers approaching Chimwala, feeling strong the slavers asked “where is the rest of your tribe”? Chimwala ,sat gracefully and attempt to take one big breath and answered “it is just me in this cold,damp hut”. In disbelief, the slavers started chopping down the plants, and crops angrily due to Chimwala’s lies.
After a while, of chopping the ancient plants the leader, of the slavers grunted “there is no way that anybody can get across this river” Feeling smug Chimwala sat down all settled and started reminiscing of her daughter Njemile and the whole of her tribe, wondering if they will be safe.
Old, wrinkly Chimwala felt relived, that the slavers were going to leave empty handed. Chimwala smirked curiously and spoke underneath her musty, fishy breath “my plan is working", whilst looking back Chimwala could see all the aggressive slavers walking past her, angrily considering they had wasted all their precious time.
