Some of our OPAL team are also coming along and will arrange some toys for the children to play with.
We really do hope that you can join us.

Thank you to our fabulous OPAL Team for making lunch times at Dunalley something very special indeed.
On Wednesday 22nd March a group of 20 children attended the annual Tag Rugby Festival up at Newlands Park.
We had two teams entered into the festival and both teams had a brilliant day! With children from Year 4, 5 and 6 it was a pleasure to see the teamwork and support they were giving one another. Lots of tries were scored and we all came home tired but with big smiles on our faces!
On Friday the 5th of May we will celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III
We are really excited that that we can celebrate this momentous occasion together at Dunalley.
From the end of the school day (at 3.15pm) we will open our grounds for a family picnic.
There will be two competitions: a 'Cake fit for a King' and a 'Crown fit for a King'
Homemade cakes and crowns can be bought into school on the morning of Friday 5th ready to be judged during our school assembly.
Children are invited to come to school wearing red, white and blue.
At hometime, children must be collected as usual as children staying for the event must be supervised by parents and carers. We will do our best to make sure that children who are booked into Lates are able to enjoy the event under the supervision our usual staff.
More information will be provided over the next few weeks.
We have a large pile of unnamed lost property. Next week we will put it all outside our main entrance at hometime. Please check it when you collect your children. Items that are not claimed by the end of the week will be recycled.
