Dell Primary School in Oulton Broad has officially opened its Early Years and Foundation Stage play area, complete with learning pods where children can access books, music and writing materials.

Youngsters were amazed to see the arrival of dinosaurs Squirt and Bubbles from Dino Hire, who caused a huge stir when they arrived for a look around.
