The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame (115-slide PowerPoint presentation and 19 worksheets)  

‘The Wind in the Willows’ is designed to help KS2 (and possibly lower ability Year 7) pupils develop a range of reading skills. The resource is suitable for a variety of abilities at KS2 and will help students improve key English skills. The PowerPoint is fully editable so can be adapted and differentiated as much, or as little, as you wish.

The activities in this unit provide opportunities for the teaching of reading and writing skills using extracts from the first 5 chapters of the classic story The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. There are numerous versions of this novel available with different levels of challenge - teachers should select the one most suitable for the children they teach. This teaching resource uses the original text which may need to be simplified for younger or lower ability children as the language can be quite complex. There are specific activities to teach grammar, punctuation and vocabulary which are aimed at Years 2 - 4, but teachers will identify further opportunities to meet the needs of the children in their classes. 

‘The Wind in the Willows’ is not intended to be a prescriptive unit of work, although it is structured chronologically. Teachers should select from, and adapt, the range of suggested activities for each section as appropriate. Any activity may be repeated for different sections of the story. Some slides include additional information for teachers in the notes section.
