The maths scheme we follow at Sacred Heart is called 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 practice 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.
How can Abacus help your child learn outside of school?
Each child has been allocated a user name and password to login to the Abacus learning platform called ‘Active Learn.’ When your child logs in to this website, they will be able to access and complete homework allocated to your child by the class teacher. This may include an interactive quiz available in different levels of difficulty. Children work their way through the three different levels for each activity (bronze, silver and then gold) and can win points that can they can then use to build their own virtual worlds. Video tutorials are also available to help explain key concepts and help with some homework activities.
