Visits & Visitors

We run an extensive Visits & Visitors programme where we provide trips out and about and invite guests into school to enhance our children's learning linked to their terms topic.

The programme is very varied with trips last year including Bristol Zoo, Cotswold Farm Park and Nature in Art and visits from Sound like Rubbish and Portals from the Past. All year groups benefit throughout the year and all children thoroughly enjoy these less traditional methods of learning.

We ask parents to support these opportunities financially. Although we can only ask for voluntary contributions we can't run our programme unless everyone contributes and adequate funds are available.

Below is a taster of some of the activities the children have participated in.

Yr1 had a wonderful trip to All Things Wild to see the amazing full scale dinosaurs models.

3 of our Yr6 pupils were privileged to go along to the private viewing of the Wildlife Wonder Gloucestershire Exhibition in Stroud at the Museum in the Park.

Yr2 had an awesome trip on Thursday to All Things Wild which supported their learning of this terms topic - 'The Rainforest'.

During Science and Maths Week we had visits from Mr G's Science Show & Cheltenham Science Group who provided a Rocket Day.

At Dunalley, we are always trying to think of new ways to further develop children’s love for reading and writing by introducing them to new authors and books. On Tuesday 5th July, thanks to the Hein Family, we were delighted to welcome Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler into school.

Our two Reception Classes had a wonderful trip to Cotswold Farm Park. From the photos I think Mrs Fox and Miss Underwood enjoyed their day too! Thanks to the parents that went along to help.

Yr5 & Yr6 were joined by Portals to the Past for a Greek inspired day. All the children dressed up in ancient Greek costume. They completed Pythagoras based puzzles, participated in role play, and competed in an Olympics between the Spartans and Athenians.

Years 3 and 4 participated in a Samba Drumming Workshop and in the afternoon the Sounds Rubbish session.

Our six infant classes enjoyed exhilarating drumming sessions run by 'Sounds Rubbish'.
