Year 3 Computing
Computing in Year 3
This half term we have been typing on the iPad. We are using Purple Mash which will provide us with all the ICT skills we need.
We have learned where the home row, bottom row and top row of keys are, on a keyboard, and are using different fingers to tap on different keys.
We also know the names of each of our fingers and are developing our ability to touch type. It won’t be long before we are skilled typists.
Brooke summarised, “It was fun and easy typing with our index fingers but a bit harder to type with our other fingers.”
Maisy identified, “I kept practising in the lesson and by the end I got used to it and could even look at the screen when I typed letters.”
Scarlett explained, “I slowly realised I was getting confident using all my fingers.”
Max thought, “Some people know how to type with all their fingers. I found this tricky but I still practised and I’m going to have a go at home too.”
Year 3 will be developing their Spreadsheet and Graphing skills next half term.
