One Eye is impressed with your hard work so far. He is considering letting you join the crew, but you must still prove your worthiness.
Impress him by summarising this information about his rival, Captain Blackbeard (hear it read to you here). Summarise it in 50 words, then try 20, 10, 5 and 3. Finally, tell the captain which summary you think is the best.

Captain One Eye is scared of one day being marooned on a desert island. In case his fears one day come true, he asks you to build a model raft to show him how it’s done.
You will need:
- Lollypop sticks, pencils or twigs
- Some way to fasten these together (string? elastic bands? glue?)
- Make it big enough to float a toy on (any size – could be very small like a Lego person)
- Make it strong enough to hold the weight of the toy
- Make it flat, at least 10cm x 10cm
- Draw your design, labelling it with the materials used.
- Take a photo, if possible, to prove it works, and email me on [email protected]
