Drawn to Dippy project for children

18 July 2021
Children are being invited to take part in Drawn to Dippy, a unique celebration of Dippy the dinosaur’s visit to Norwich Cathedral. Science education charity, the Teacher Scientist Network, is encouraging young people to get involved in creating work that is inspired by the themes of Dippy on Tour, including global food security, climate change and sustainability.

There are two age categories and children should enter the Key Stage category which they will be in as of 13 July 2021:

Key Stage 1 and 2 (4-11 years).
Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 (11-18 years).

Dippy’s Favourite Day is the theme for entries in the KS1 and 2 categories entries. Children can choose the way in which they would like to reflect this title, for example, they could create some artwork, a written text (non-fiction or fiction but based on fact), graphic, labelled diagram, model, sculpture or video clip.

KS3, 4 and 5 should address the title Dippy the Diplodocus and produce an infographic designed to share information with primary-aged pupils about Dippy.

Children’s entries can be submitted by schools, youth groups and other organisations and also by parents or guardians.

Entries should be submitted online via Instagram or Twitter by using the hashtag #drawntodippy and including the title Dippy’s Favourite Day or Dippy the Diplodocus.

Some of the work submitted will then be displayed on a Drawn to Dippy social media wall and potentially on screens around Norwich Cathedral.
