We’ve found some of the best STEAM products around for your school, from inspiring after-school clubs and

workshops to innovative technology


Mathletics is an online maths resource used by thousands of schools across the UK, from KS1 to KS4, and is proven to significantly increase student engagement and attainment. Courses are broken down into topics

representing major areas of focus within each year, all mapped to curriculum requirements. Students have access to a vast range of learning resources (activities, eBooks, a new ‘Multiverse’ times tables challenge and videos), while a traffic light system helps students drive their own learning. For teachers, time-saving features such as

Dynamic Results provide an immediate snapshot of student results, while the ‘Assign’ functionality allows teachers to schedule and plan ahead. Mathletics has also been shown to help foster a growth mindset towards maths, as well as building parental engagement. ‘All the children love Mathletics, and, crucially,

I have noted a clear link between a pupil’s SATs results and the number of times that child logged onto Mathletics. It has also given maths a more ‘cool’ status at our school, thanks to the avatars and all the other incentives and certificates.’ Zohra Benotmane, acting assistant head and maths subject leader, Snowsfields Primary School, Southwark, London (224 pupils)

Workshops from £195

Creation Station

With schools and teachers under increasing pressure due to budget cuts and time constraints, it can be difficult to cover core topics, never mind introducing fun activities for children and teachers. Creation Station believes passionately in nurturing each child’s potential, and one of the many ways they do this is through its award- winning Create Clubs and school workshops. Creativity sparks curiosity and a creative

approach to all subjects, helping pupils to stay engaged and create their own journey of learning. Putting the arts into ‘STEM’ to create fun and engaging ‘STEAM’ activities is a driving force behind Creative Station’s programmes. Pupils’ creativity and innovation is fostered in a range of self-directed, discovery-based learning. It also runs after-school Create Clubs – weekly,

From £5.04 per head for the whole school

one-hour clubs that operate throughout the term, with topics including ‘The Art of Science’ and ‘Out of the World’. Create Clubs are planned, resourced and run by DBS-checked, trained leaders. Creation Station’s school workshops, meanwhile, bring high-quality products and tools to your school and will enhance and complement your school’s programme of learning. These can be stand-alone sessions or adapted to suit your learning requirements, and are suitable for Early Years, KS1 and KS2. ‘Our school wasn’t offering any hands-on

creative after school provision and Creation Station has met this need brilliantly. The activities are varied and well resourced there’s always a lovely rapport, happy atmosphere and buzz at the club.’ J Tetlow, head of teaching and learning, Kenn CofE Primary School, Kennford, Devon (94 pupils)
