The widespread school closures have created new challenges for everyone supporting young people. STEM Learning is working hard to develop and roll out a range of materials, which we hope will help you.

Our subject experts have put together a selection of resources – all of which are completely free for everyone to access. Our subject experts are also available weekdays from 8:30am to 4.30pm via our webchat, which you can find in the bottom right hand corner of all our web pages.


Resources focus on key food themes within curriculum areas, such as where food comes from, cooking, and healthy eating, but also offer a range of opportunities for cross-curricular (interdisaplinary) learning. Many resources and activities use food as a vehicle to provide engaging learning via subjects such as: numeracy, literacy, humanities, science, PSHE/health and wellbeing, D&T, religious education, and art.
