Whole School Projects

We have provided a range of whole school projects and activities that you may wish to complete together as a family.

We would love to see all of the things you are doing at home so please email a photo tagged with your year group and a message, if you would like to. Email address photos@dunalley.gloucs.sch.uk

We have a fabulous gallery available here for you to see what everyone has been up to.

Please save all of your work, if you can, and bring it into school when we re-open and we can then celebrate all the fabulous things you have been doing at home.

View from my window - draw, paint, collage or model the view from your window or an imagiary view of what would you like to see outside your window.


Recycling project – there are lots of things in the recycling box that could be used to make something new. You could make a model, plant pots, storage for stationery etc. What ideas can you come up with? You could write a set of instructions to go with it so someone else could make it. The BBC has some great and simple craft ideas including making wrist bands, bingo cards and much more:

Zentangle art - an abstract project that you can get creative with is Zentangle art. If you google the word Zentangle you will see lots of abstract art which can be inspired by nature:

We would like children to come back to school with a positive message (which we will display in school) by creating a Zentangle around a word which they feel supports the Dunalley school values.

Here are our school values 

We value each individual and celebrate diversity 

We care about each other and the environment 

We persevere and grow together 

We are ready, respectful and safe

Baking and cooking - a great way to spend time together, feed the family and use a bit of mathematical measuring is to cook as a family. Simple ideas like tuna & sweetcorn slice and microwave mug cake are all on the BBC site:

Pippin Celebration – It will be nearly a year since Pippin has been our school dog so we would like you to create a picture or model of him. You could draw, paint, collage, sculpt or junk model. Add some writing about him, tell him what you like about having him as our school dog. He would like some pictures of your pets too so why not do the same with your pet. 

Handwriting – copy out our school values in your neatest handwriting and draw pictures about school to go with them. 

Here are our school values 

We value each individual and celebrate diversity 

We care about each other and the environment 

We persevere and grow together
