Useful Weblinks

 Please find below some useful websites for parents and children to use:

Abacus Maths - KS2

The site is found at

All children in KS2 will have a username and a password,  if your child cannot remember his or her password, your child's teacher can change it quickly and easily. A school code is also required; I can't publish it here for security reasons, but your child should know it. If not, feel free to contact the school.
