Animal Farm by George Orwell

This KS3 EAL resource supports learners to understand the story of George Orwell's Animal Farm novel, and to be able to analyse and describe the different characters from the book and explain who those characters represent.

This resource includes the following activities:

  • DARTs activities to help learners develop their descriptive language (adjectives) to write and talk about a number of the characters;
  • a speaking role-play activity to develop the learners’ ability to recount narratives and practice using a number of pronouns;
  • a substitution table to enable learners to talk about what the different novel characters represent and to justify their choices;
  • summaries of all chapters, including opportunities for learners to translate a number of key words into their own language.
