Hope this helps - once your child has gained a little confidence cover his / her hands and keyboard with a tea towel to stop peeking at the keys.

My 9 year old learnt to type recently using "Kewala's amazing keyboard adventure" from It's suitable for kids from 6 and looks like fun. It's an Australian programme but I know you can get it in the UK.

I know mine use a Spongebob typing game. It is quite old though.

BBC website has a good one called "dance mat touch typing". I go into school once a week and help out with a small group of children who all have problems with their writing and we use this program with them. Most of them really enjoy it.
