Dramatising Key Moments in KS3 English

Many of the English students in Key Stage 3 finished Term 1 by stepping out of their comfort zones and channelling their inner thespians to dramatise key moments from the novels they had been studying.

After coming to the end of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”, for example, a Year 9 class decided on what they thought were the key moments in the plot, then dramatized these for their classmates. Memorable moments included pig shrieks, drunken arguments, and political rivals being chased from the room! 

One Year 7 class reinterpreted the ‘fairy ring’ scene from Neil Gaiman’s “The Ocean at the End of the Lane”. Working in groups, the students discussed the themes running through this part of the story and then recreated it using their own words. Also, having enjoyed the book so much, they each wrote letters to the author to share their thoughts and ask him questions.
