Ask the expert!

Standard

We are again working on our touch typing, however this week Mr Connolly is working in Year 2 helping with their SATs so I have called in an Expert – Miss Hernon!

Some classes have seen Mrs Kelsall touch type, others Miss Hernon.  They both will tell you that the important lesson of never looking at the keyboard and making sure your fingers are on the home row!

Good Luck.

Typing Club

Zumba Kids

Standard

To immerse ourselves further in South  American culture, we took part in a Zumba Kids session yesterday afternoon! We listened out for percussion instruments in the music and practised dance steps such as Cumbia and Merengue before putting them into whole routines and performing a dance off! To top it off, we finished with limbo!

We really enjoyed our special visit from George, our qualified Zumba instructor. Thanks George!

Keep on typing…

Standard

This morning Mrs Kelsall came it and demonstrated how she touch types.  She explains that at first you go slower but with lots of practice – at home as well as school your speed will quickly improve.

As you move through education and into work the ability to touch type will be really valuable as you will have lots of reports and essays that will need to be typed up.

The number one rule is…

Do not look at your fingers.

Typing club will help you learn with lots of small steps.

  

Remember to sit with good posture and your fingers on the home keys.
