A Deeply Dippy Visit

by Michael Ford last modified 21 Mar, 2018 10:51 AM

Okeford Fitzpaine pupils visited Dorset County Museum to see Dippy the Dinosaur, the major attraction on the Natural History Museum’s ‘Dippy on Tour’.

Pupils learned about Dippy from a cast of a Diplodocus skeleton first unveiled in 1905. Other dinosaur activities included exploring the fossil collection, excavating for fossils and even a Tyrannosaurus Rex made of Lego!

Rosie said, “I liked going on the bus to Dorchester. We saw Dippy the dinosaur, he had a long tail and was very tall.”

Learning About Dinosaurs

Beech Class said, “We enjoyed being palaeontologists, digging in the sand and learning about different fossils.”

Lego T Rex

Dylan said, “I enjoyed the trip because I got to see a large Lego dinosaur structure. I really like Lego and dinosaurs.”

Principal Jessica Bacon added, "The children's behaviour was exemplary from start to finish. Thank you to the children, parents, volunteers and staff who supported the trip!"

Dippy has proved extremely popular, and will be on display at the Dorset County Museum until 7 May 2018.
