Why 'Epic Tales Online'?
With the COVID-19 outbreak introducing many grown-ups and children to homeschooling, while teachers race to support both them and the children of key workers still attending school, we're doing our bit to help.
Every Monday at 9:30am, we release a new and free folk tale—as online videos, PDFs, and a podcast—plus bonus resources to enhance your story-led learning experience:
two videos of every story – "basic" and "enhanced" tellings – to help children grow their literacy skills
a weekly Epic Challenge – send your children's creations to us and they can feature in our Friday "Sharing Shpecial"
a weekly podcast with teachers discussing fun ways to draw out each tale's curriculum links.
So with all that said, it's time for the...
