The Wind in the Willows

Our love of literary adaptations continues with The Wind in the Willows, which has been charming school audiences since Christmas 2015.

The 60-minute play for the whole school (Reception to Year 6) allows children to access Kenneth Grahame’s classic story in a new way.  Using the original text coupled with modern language and brand new songs by Ed Poole, the performance is a real treat for the whole school and has something to appeal to every age bracket in the audience.

At Altru we’re passionate about encouraging children to read both modern and classic literature.  We believe that avid readers make great writers, creators and thinkers – and that there’s a story out there for everyone. It’s an absolute pleasure to introduce this story to a new young audience – and inspire them to pick up the book for themselves.  Our performance has significant links to the National Curriculum for English at Key Stage 1 & 2, click on the document link for more information: Wind in the Willows National Curriculum Links

“Fun, funny, engaging, pacey, excellent set and super acting. You brought the story to life for children beautifully!” Miss Ashton, Chorlton C of E Primary

“Fantastic – children really enjoyed it and loved being able to join in. They followed the story and loved the characters and singing along to the music! Thanks!” Mr Simpson, Heald Place Primary School
