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.

It all started there – an Early Years and Primary teaching resources site that was affordable, easy and quick to navigate, as well as providing time-saving resources.

Talented artist and designer Hayley Price to create something truly engaging for children using Heather’s teaching insights. 

Over time Heather and Hayley were joined by other like-minded people including Sophie, Shelley, Anne and Katie who were also passionate about helping others and making time-saving learning resources.

Then it got big. Thousands and thousands of people wanted more and more, so we made our maths scheme of work, topic resources, innovative display resources, continuous provision resources, phonics resources and worked to create collab ranges with our favourite Instagrammers.

Teachers and children love the bright, colourful nature of our resources, and the fact we are “a bit different”.

The ethos has never changed. Is it time-saving? Is it hands-on? Is it meaningful? If it’s not, it doesn’t get a look-in.
