Year 3 have been learning all about animation and multimedia in computing. The children planned a storyboard then created a backdrop and puppets for their animation. Finally, they used ‘onion skinning’ to create an animation using the Stikbot Studio app. The children finished their animation using iMovie to add a title and accompanying music. Have a look at some of the children’s fantastic animations below :
A friend Miss Farthey has reached out to schools asking the pupils to draw pictures to send to children in Ukraine to boost morale and spread a little happiness.
Year 3 showed their compassion by creating heartfelt pictures sporting the Ukrainian flag colours. They used an internet translation tool to write messages of hope, peace and support in Ukrainian. They have really done Laygate proud with their empathy and concern for the Ukrainian children at this troublesome time.
As part of out Design Technology unit of work, the children in year 3 have been learning about electrical circuits and how they are used in a range of everyday products. The children were given the following design brief:
To design and make a greetings card that lights up.
You are going to design and create a bespoke, one-off greetings card for a person of your choice. You will need to consider the purpose of the card and an appropriate theme linked to Christmas. It must include an electrical element and be attractive and appealing.
The children used online research and reading to help develop the design criteria and communicated their ideas through discussion and annotated sketches. The children decided whether they would design a card with a traditional or religious Christmas theme and whether to make it 2D or 3D.
Here are some photos of our creative designers and engineers and their work:
Our fantastic, talented children from LKS2 and UKS2 have been practicing hard to learn a range of songs and dances for their Christmas performance. We can guarantee you will be awe-struck by their amazing singing voices and adept dance moves. We hope you enjoy.

We received an email from the South Tyneside Hospital asking if we would like to spread some Christmas cheer. The children in year 3 made someChristmas cards and pictures for the children who will be in hospital over Christmas to brighten up their ward. We designed some beautiful pictures and wrote some heart warming messages.
“Don’t worry if you don’t receive lots of presents or visitors. All the matters is spreading love, kindness and care. Happy Christmas, from Ava.”
“I hope this picture makes you smile and cheers you up. Get well soon and merry Christmas, from M.”
