Mini MouseWizards is our Foundation Stage curriculum for children in Reception.

The focus is on developing mouse and keyboard skills in preparation for computer independence upon entry to Year 1.  Mouse skills are refined and precision is developed through engaging and educational activities, whilst keyboard activities feed into phonics and reading skills.
