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

This week, Epic storytellers Chip and Amy (also an Epic mum!) are joined by two teachers from Milton Keynes: Helen, who specialises in children aged 4 to 7; and Rob, who has taught children aged 7 to 11. Together they discuss the curriculum links within the story at the heart of Kingdom 1000: "The Eel Catcher's Daughter". Discover how to help your children conquer acceptance, kennings, positional language... and much more!
