Youngsters got a surprise that was out of this world last week when a UFO crashed into their primary school playground.

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.

She said: “A very talented parent built the space craft in a limited amount of time and kindly dressed as a forensic detective to help with the staging of the crash. PC Glyn Kelly also agreed to attend the scene to add to the mystery of the crash.

“Both children and parents were excited by it and the rest of the school day revolved around discussions as to what could have happened, with the children carrying out creative writing tasks.

“Some fantastic pieces of writing were produced by both girls and boys resulting in a successful day of creative writing.”
