We are still in the process of transition. Some links are still being tested, and we are in the process of replacing the web developer's "placeholder" content.

October ends with Halloween, but this is just the "Christmas Eve" of All Saints' Day – a celebration of how incredible human beings can be.

So to help your young learners see how incredible THEY can be, we're sharing a true story written by a saint... about two others saints!

Afterwards, your young learners will be fired up to attempt our Epic Challenge – meaning they win the end of the story, and hit a Literacy objective at the same time!

October is a fairy, spooky, musical month! After beginning with National Poetry Day, World Singing Day is slap in the middle... and at the end is Halloween!

So we celebrate **all three** in this Epic Tale – or rather, this Epic Ballad! Your young learners can join Chip and Tails (his guitar) for a musical interpretation of one well-known fairy tale that doesn't exactly end happily ever after...

...and afterwards, your young learners will be fired up to attempt our Epic Challenge – meaning they win the end of the story, and hit a Literacy objective at the same time!

In this vid, we invite them to send us their spooky poems – and in return, we'll turn them into spooky songs!

Have you ever felt like the whole world is out to get you – but everything would change if they all knew exactly what you have to offer? That's exactly how Robin Goodfellow felt at the start of this story.

Thing is, Robin was also gifted powers by the Fairy King. Once he received them, he decided it was time to teach the world a lesson – but first, the world had one more lesson for him...

Featuring a character of English folklore who even made his way into Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream", this Epic Tale has plenty of fun AND learning for your young learners too!

Epic Tales Online is back for the 20-21 Academic Year! And we're kicking off with a charmingly repulsive tale that would have delighted Roald Dahl – not just because the baker in this tale is hideously wicked, but because the tale itself comes from his home town of Great Missenden! It's doubly perfect for starting September, though. First, it's full of learning outcomes perfect for helping a new class to settle in. And second, 13th September is of course Roald Dahl Day!
