Epic Learning Podcast

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.

To mark World Space Week we share a Mexican love story between the Sun and Moon – though it doesn't quite go how the Sun expects... Discover how his romantic efforts can help your children conquer rhyme, multiplication, and more!

This week, Epic storyteller Chip is joined by Helen, an EYFS–KS1 teacher from Buckinghamshire; Bex, a Deputy Head from Cambridgeshire; and Rob, a KS2 teacher also from Buckinghamshire.
