As part of their Computing lessons, children throughout the Prep Department have been working on their touch typing skills. There are numerous benefits to this (read about the benefits of touch typing here), not least that it will increase their familiarity with the computer keyboard and make their learning during Computing lessons more productive.
Children in Prep I and II have a bit of fun using Dance Mat Typing – you can access the site through the Learning Resources link on this blog here
Older children from Prep III to Prep VI have their own individual Typing Club account, which they can access through their school Google Classroom login.
Of course, parents are more than welcome to try to improve their own two-finger typing using these sites – perhaps you can challenge your child to see who becomes the better typist?!
