Edgware pupils tackle alien investigation


Harrow Times: "When children came into Stag Lane Middle School, in Collier Drive, this morning they found a small section of their playing field cordoned off behind police tape and a forensic expert taking samples from strange markings on the grass.

Teachers have spent the last two weeks mocking up ???alien??? hand prints, as well as strange symbols, and todays stunt forms the final chapter of an exercise staff hope will stimulate their imagination and teach creative writing skills.

Elena Evans, headteacher at the school, said: ???We think learning should be exciting and they also write better when they have practical things to write about.???"

finally! a FEASIBLE scenario for a lock-down drill!
