The saucer-shaped intergalactic craft was found half-buried in the tarmac at North Harringay primary school in Falkland Road.
A forensic officer was spotted inspecting the UFO while police closely guarded the scene, which was roped off while investigations took place.
The whole event was just the inspiration pupils needed for a creative writing day at the school, and was orchestrated by Emma Hassan, its literacy leader, with the help of one very creative parent and a local PC.
Quite the creative way to go in order to inspire your students to write. According to Hassan, lots of good stories came out of the experience. How awesome is that! Love it. It’s clear that monsters and mysteries are interesting to kids and can inspire thought. I do hope they attempted to instill some critical thinking into this activity as well.
The UFO was built by one of the students parents, who is also playing the role of the forensic officer.
