Thanks to Doug Dickinson for the recommendation of 2 "no Cost" resources for supporting keyboard skills.
In his comment left today he says
"There are a number of 'no cost' practice solutions to keyboarding. It is worth having a look at 'letter rain' in the set of software from Sebran ... many schools have been using this for a number of years now. Or you could go to the old BBC for their site Dancemat."
In the primary school variety is truly the spice of life, and am always glad to be able to increase the range of resources and tools I have to draw on.
