Abacus

Abacus is a maths toolkit that has been written for the new primary maths curriculum. It’s been carefully crafted on a robust approach to creating inspired and confident young mathematicians.

To help children make sense of and practise their maths, Abacus provides a combination of maths games, interactive activities, pupil videos and pupil worksheets, focused around an interactive pupil world where your child can earn rewards and personalise their learning.

As part of the scheme there are differentiated homework activities. To be able to access these games / activities children will need internet access. If your child has not got access to the internet at home and is unable to complete their homework please speak to their class teacher and alternative arrangements can be made.

The Abacus pupil world is the place that your child will log into to play maths games, complete interactive activities and access rewards. They earn rewards by completing the games and activities that their teacher has allocated to them. They can also watch pupil videos, which recap key teaching topics. These videos are accompanied by pupil worksheets that help children practise key maths skills.

If you have access to an internet connection, your child can log into the Abacus pupil world at home with their personal login. They can do so via a computer or tablet. The Abacus pupil world is powered by a website called ActiveLearn. To log into the pupil world, your child will need to:

1. Go to www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
2. Enter their login details and click “Log in”
3. School code:ctfp

Please note: We strongly recommend using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browsers with ActiveLearn. If you prefer to use Internet Explorer, please check you have at least IE9 in order for everything to work as it should.

We hope that your child will enjoy completing these maths tasks and that they have a positive effect on your child’s learning.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.
