Active Learn

At Katherine Semar Schools we have subscribed to the primary reading, phonics and science programme “Active Learn”.

Science Bug

A new and exciting hands-on science programme designed for today’s curious kids! It’s written for the new primary science programme of study in England to help you spark imagination, fuel curiosity and nurture inspired and confident young scientists. 


A unique maths toolkit written for the new curriculum; Abacus has carefully crafted a robust approach to creating inspired and confident young mathematicians.

Bug Club

A personalised reading world for 21st century children - perfectly matched to the aims of the new curriculum.     

We hope that our children will catch the “reading bug” using the phonic based reading programme where they can connect to an online reading world at home and at school with access to fantastic print books and comics packed with child-friendly characters like Doctor Who, Wallace and Gromit, Ben 10 and a whole host of others.  The Bug Club online reading scheme matches directly with our phonics and guided reading schemes.

Teachers throughout the school incorporate Bug Club on a daily basis into their lessons such as phonics, literacy and guided reading and our children really love it.

Each child has their own Active Learn account – where our teachers allocate e-books regularly.
