‘The Great Rescue!’ by Amelia, Age 8 Years

The Great Rescue!
Once there was a girl called Scarlet. She couldn’t swim but she loved fish and chips, music, colours and she was eleven.
One day Scarlet and her mum were at home getting ready because they had heard that the tall ships were in town.
After a while they walked down to the harbour. The harbour was colourful and very busy. They walked to the fish and chip shop (which was very busy too). After that they took a walk on the pier.
Suddenly, Scarlet lost her mum and fell into the sea and as you know she can’t swim! She sank down to the bottom of the ocean.
After a while the RNLI rescued Scarlet.
“Are you OK?” shouted Jack, a crew member.
“Yes,” replied Scarlet, “Well I think I swallowed some water…Blaaahh!”
“Let’s get you warmed up,” said Jack.
Scarlet followed Jack down and Jack grabbed a towel and introduced everyone.
Suddenly there was a call for an emergency! The RNLI crew forgot that Scarlet was still on the boat and the emergency was in Devon!

Meanwhile, in town Scarlet’s mum was worried. She told everyone that she couldn’t find her daughter and she even put up posters. It was 7 o’clock in the evening.
“It’s nearly her bed-time,” said Scarlet’s mum worriedly, “Where can she be?”

Just then, on the boat they were getting ready to go off. It went so fast that Scarlet fell off the boat! Luckily she was wearing a life-jacket and so she could swim back to shore.
In the end she found her mum and they had an ice cream and a party.
After the party they watched the Tall Ships and a little carnival, and from then on, Scarlet was always careful.
