Asalaamu alaikum parents,
Today your child has received a username and password for 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.
Using the Abacus online pupil world with your child
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 we have allocated to them. They can also watch pupil videos, which recap key teaching topics.
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.
Logging into the pupil world
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”.
Once your child has logged in, they’ll arrive at the Pupil Home.
Children can personalise their home screen by choosing a world. The worlds differ depending on key stage but include Race World, Skate World and Future World.
This is where children can see the activities we have allocated to them. They can see here how many coins each game or activity is worth before completing it.
‘My Rewards’ is where your child can go to select their rewards after completing allocated games and activities. They can also customise avatars, decorate a tree house, play games and more. The more games and activities your child completes, the more rewards they can unlock and buy.
If your child has NO internet access at home, please come into school and speak to us.
