Join Epic storytellers and creative teachers as they discuss how to draw out curriculum links from this week's Epic Storytime podcast with easy, fun and engaging activities.

This week, Epic storytellers Chip and Janina (who is also an Epic mum!) are joined by Helen, an EYFS and KS1 teacher from Milton Keynes, and Laura, an international English teacher currently based in Lanzarote who specialises in KS2, to discuss the curriculum links within the Norwegian folk tale of "Prince Lindworm". Discover how to explore the science of classification, the PSHCE themes of puberty and health, authorial inspiration, and much more.
