This week, your topic work is a little bit different. 


As we’re all finding ourselves having to use computers and type a lot more, I thought it might help if we took a few typing lessons this week!

Purple Mash has a whole unit on typing.  It includes lots of activities which help us to learn to type efficiently and accurately with two hands - and hopefully a little quicker, for some of us, too! 😊

Go to your Purple Mash Home page.

Click on Computing.

Then, click on 2Type.








I’ve set up some daily tasks on the Purple Mash 2Do’s. Each day, you will find some activities and tasks. For a lot of them, you can alter the time to more or less minutes – it depends how you get on.  Also, you might want to do some of the activities just the once, others more times. Though, be warned – some of the games are addictive and I kept wanting to beat my time!

Look at the topic section each day to see what activities to try.
