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 storyteller Chip is joined by Epic voice artist Erika Sanderson (also an Epic mum!) as well as Helen, an EYFS and KS1 teacher from Milton Keynes, and Laura, an international English teacher who specialises in KS2. Together they discuss the curriculum links within the classic folk comedy, "Muddled Jack". Discover how to get your children motivated to write, get fit, explore biology... and much more!
