Welcome to Abacus.
Abacus is a Maths and Numeracy toolkit that has been written for the new primary Maths and Numeracy curriculum. It's been carefully crafted on a robust approach to create inspired and confident young mathematicians. The spiral nature of the Abacus programme allows teachers and pupils to regularly revisit key themes and develop a wide range of strategies.
To help children make sense of, and consolidate their Maths and Numeracy, Abacus provides a combination of games, interactive activities, pupil videos and pupil worksheets, focused around an interactive world where your child can earn rewards and personalise their own learning.
At Strathmore, children across the school will use Abacus to form the majority of their Maths and Numeracy learning.
