Pupils and parents from Littleham Primary School were joined by Darrell Wakelam in conjunction with the Jurassic Coast Trust for the ‘Dippy on Tour’ workshop.

Children produced two pieces of art – a replica school logo and a dinosaur - to mark the journey being taken by ‘Dippy’ the diplodocus from the Natural History Museum.

Pupils were also given the opportunity to handle fossils and find out more about the Jurassic Coast and Exmouth Museum.

Sarah Padbury, head of learning at Littleham Primary School, was delighted with the event and expressed her gratitude to Darrell for his input. She said: “As a school we are incredibly creative in our approach to the primary curriculum - staff and pupils work immensely hard to make fantastic progress. The ‘Dippy Day’ was just another opportunity.”
