Active Learn is made up of Bug Club for younger children and then Abacus games and Science Bug for all children.
What is Bug Club?
Bug Club is a finely-levelled reading scheme, which ensures that all children can access books at exactly the right level for them. We allocate books to your child according to their reading levels. These books will appear in the ‘My Stuff’ area of their personal homepages.
Throughout the books there are quiz questions for your child to complete. To answer a question, just click on the bug icon. Your child does not need to finish all the quiz questions in one sitting and can come back to a book later.
When your child has finished all the quiz questions in a book, he or she will earn ‘Active Learn Coins’. By reading more books, your child will earn enough coins to ‘buy’ a reward in one of the many reward schemes. The answers to the quiz questions will be sent back to our teacher site so that we can see how your child is progressing. We will also be able to assign more books for your child to read if the virtual book bag is running low.
When your child has finished a book, it will move to ‘My Library’. Children can read these books again if they want to, or they can choose new books from ‘My Stuff’.
What is 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. 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 teachers have allocated to them. They can also watch pupil videos, which recap key teaching topics.
What is Science Bug?
Science Bug is an information tool that reinforces what your child has learnt in class. During your child’s topic there will be videos, texts and other activities available to view.
