1. Children
  2. Type Off

Welcome to the Great Churwell Type Off!

In school we have been practising our typing skills to help us become better at word processing and typing up our work. We have held a competition to see who is the fastest typist at Churwell. All of the classes have been practising their typing skills in their Computing lessons to get ready for the big challenge!

Children in Nursery and Reception took the Type Off challenge on an iPad with a bit of help from the Digital Leaders. They practised just typing the home row of keys (ASDFGHJKL). KS1 children practised typing all of the keys including some punctuation. KS2 children had a bigger challenge to type high frequency words.

Here are the tables for the fastest children in KS1 and KS2... Did you make it?

The results of the Spring Type Off competition are in and the Digital Leaders have been working very hard to find out who has won! Well done to everyone who entered! Some of the scores were very close and there were some ties. For the children who scored exactly the same we looked at how accurate they were - this means how many mistakes they made.
