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 a place where your child can login with their own username and password 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.
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”.
Your child’s login will be allocated by their class teacher with their password.
Our school code is “troo”.
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 their teacher has 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.
Don’t forget, if your child is having trouble using the pupil world, help can be found in the Help Section of ActiveLearn (in the top right-hand corner of the website).
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.
If the activities are not loading the first time your child tries to logon, please check that your computer or tablet does not have pop ups blocked: this will show as a small red cross in the right hand corner of the web address box. Once you click on the cross and choose always to allow popups from this website, activities should then launch successfully.
