This week, the children of OLOG have been lucky enough to experience the wonders of the circus. The children were exposed to an array of thrilling and captivating activities which were aimed at increasing their hand-eye co-ordination skills and self-confidence whilst tapping into the creative arts! Children also had the opportunity to create circus themed art pieces, many of which were proudly displayed in the hall.
Each class, over the course of the week, had the opportunity to work closely with an experienced circus performer. Over the two sessions, the children were able to learn and refine their new skills and prepare for the final 'Big Top Show' which took place on Friday (8th March). Parents were invited to share in the fun and witness the hardwork their children had put in; it was a delightful afternoon for all.
Migration Stories Project
We are delighted to have been chosen by Generations of Learning to take part in their Migration Stories Project. Our school was asked to create a piece of artwork to celebrate the on-going story of Migration to Cricklewood since the 1950s. All children took part in a competition and produced sketches of their ideas and these ideas were then used to design a final piece of sculpture. A number of children from each class were invited to take up tools with artist Alistair Lambert over the past few Thursdays. They used sculpting, woodwork, metalwork and painting skills to complete the final piece.
Alistair revealed the final artwork to the whole school during an assembly. We are all very proud of how it looks and pictures are included below!
The artwork will now form part of the Generations of Learning travelling exhibition and will finally return to our school as a piece of the project legacy. More information on the project can be found on http://www.golheritage.com .
We would like to say a big thank you to Sorcha Ni Foghluda from Generations of Learning for choosing our school, to Mr Alistair Lambert for teaching us new skills and to Mrs O' Mullane for all her hard work in organising and working on this project.
ICT Club have created avatars and graffitti!! Can you recognise them below? We used logical reasoning and problem solving to create the graffitti using a site without instructions. We are proud of our work.

World Book Day
The whole school made a great effort to dress up as their favourite book character for World Book Day. The children really enjoyed meeting Piers Torday, who spoke to the children about his book ‘The Last Wild’ and explained why he
wanted to become an author.
Thank you to parents for helping the children with their costumes.
Well done to the costume winners in each class who won a signed
copy of Piers’ book.
