Art Update

Frederico de Cicco is one of our Midday Supervisory Assistants and a local artist and illustrator. He led an art club at school in June and July 2018.  Among other things, he and the children produced a wonderful mural in the KS1 playground. All the workshops were based on Frederico’s own project “Across the Free Land”.

You can see pictures of the mural and of the children’s art work on our Art Club page. Here is the link to Frederico’s website:

Frederico also produced a lovely picture of the playground:

ROAR Competition – Congratulations to our Team

OLOL entered a competition held by 7billion ideas and Rottingdean and Saltdean Lions called ROAR 2018. We competed with over 40 schools from around Sussex and Kent. We had to think big, dream big and come up with an idea to change the world. The children were asked to test their imaginations and in groups of 3 or 4 they had to promote and pitch their product/idea to change the world; this included:
– creating a poster
– creating a model made from recyclable materials
– creating a story
– creating a jingle and a slogan
On Thursday 6th December our winning team from Year 6 went to Wakehurst Place to compete and were judged the overall winners!    Read more about their invention and see pictures here.

We do ask that you please help and spread the word and let people know of our final Open Day in the New Year. We have so much to celebrate, from our excellent results this year, recent Ofsted report, amazing resurfaced playing spaces, to our strong Sports tradition and two years Sports Champions of all the Deans schools, new library and Junior classrooms as well as the exciting new learning environment we have almost completed at the top of the school site (to share with you all in the New Year!). How lucky any new parents/carers are to have such a supportive and strong parent/carer network as you all! Thank you!
