Epic Tales Online: The Spooky Strummer of Hamelin

Start time: October 12, 2020 9:30 am

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! Plus: teachers and educators should check the Epic Learning podcast at epictales.co.uk/story/strummer for tips on learning outcomes using this story – including numeracy, RE, and PE!
