Join Epic storytellers and creative teachers as they discuss how to draw out Learning Outcomes from this week's Epic Tale with fun and engaging activities.

In the UK, the first week of December is National Grief Awareness Week, and in the year of 2020 it's perhaps even more important to discuss themes of loss with your young learners. There is no better way in than the gorgeous Hindu tale of "Yami and Yama" – which will also help them master concepts such as volume, -er and -est suffixes, and more.

To discuss this week's tale, Epic storyteller Chip is joined by Helen, an EYFS-KS1 teacher from Buckinghamshire; Bex, a Deputy Head from Cambridgeshire; and Laura, a headteacher for an International School in Lanzarote.
