Storytime: The Mrs Mactivity Story
When you're a teacher, or a parent, time is your most precious commodity. Our founder and experienced teacher Heather knows all about that. She found herself spending hours and hours searching for meaningful learning activities for both her class and own children, or spent hours making them herself.
Nothing she found online ever seemed to quite work, or was just too expensive, and so she decided that the only thing to do was spend her time helping other people like herself, and create a whole new approach to Early Years and Primary learning resources.
The movement started there - an Early Years and Primary teaching website that was affordable, easy and quick to navigate, as well as providing delightful and meaningful resources. Amazing designer Hayley wanted in. She wanted to use her incredible talents to create something truly beautiful for children alongside Heather's teaching insights. So that's what they did. Word spread. Teachers, home educators, parents, childminders, tutors - they got it.
They wanted more. The community grew. Over time Heather and Hayley were joined by other like-minded people including Sophie, Hannah, Rebecca and Nicola who were also passionate about helping others and making delightful and thoughtful learning resources.
Then it got big, thousands and thousands of people wanted more and more, so we made our active phonics scheme, play-based lesson plans, display resources, maths resources, English resources and covered topic after topic.
The ethos never changed. Is it time-saving? Is it delightful? Is it meaningful? If it's not, it doesn't get a look-in.
Heather is our founder and has a breadth of teaching experience from 5 - 18, spending most of her time in KS2. She has taught in Japan and Spain as well as Bradford, Yorkshire. Heather is also the mum of three children and a huge general fan of owls and drinking tea.
