LI: To find and summarise the story behind the poem.
The waves were moving gently so the ship was still. No sound just a inchcape rock with a bell on top. On a buoy in The storm it floated and swung. The bell warned them to stay away from the danger. The sun shining was great so the waves were peaceful. Sir Ralph walked the deck To see a darker speck. Sir ralph heart was mirthful to excess and was wickedness. He felt wicked to cause a problem for other ships. Ralph bent over from the boat then cut the bell. Sir Ralph then felt powerful for causing danger to ships. Sir Ralph sailed the seas manys day after with metals. He said and said for many and many longs days. So thick in a haze the sun on the high. The night sky was so dark that Canst was scared. A wild storm passes by hitting the boat with strike. Sir Ralph ripped his hair off while the boat sinked. Ralph heard a inchcape bell ringing down below down far.
Our challenge was to unpack the story behind the 17 verses of the poem Inchcape Rock by Robert Southy. The part I found interesting was why Sir Ralph cut the bell and why cause harm to the other ships.
I found this activity fun and intresting because I had the chance to learn more about the Inchcape Rock and why it is important.
