Abacus - Making maths fun!
To ensure that our children are enthusiastic and motivated learners, we have adopted an interactive, colourful, motivating and engaging online Maths Scheme known as Abacus.
This Scheme ensures that the new curriculum objectives for each year groups are being taught in a fun and inspiring way. Abacus provides online games and assessments, interactive tools and a digital learnning space for the children.
Teachers use this as a platform for their teaching of maths, alongside this real life problem solving and 'hands on maths' ensure that our children love Maths as much as we do!
Learning our times tables can help us to estimate quickly and to calculate in our heads. Please encourage your child to practise their times tables. In addition to Abacus activities, here are some other useful websites and resources to help with this:
