Was it from Venus? Was it from Mars? Where from the solar system was it from?

Pupils at St Mary’s CofE Primary school in Garnet Road, Neasden, were stunned to come to school on Monday morning to see an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) had crashed in their playground.

The silver ship landed on a patch of grass and was surrounded with mud as smoke billowed out from its sides with what looked like lava bricks thrown aside.

Two police officers at the scene had cordoned off the area telling children to keep a note of what occurred over the week to help them with their investigations.

Nic’Kyle Appiah, 8, said: “Maybe it came from the Solar System. The police told us to write a report and they’ll come back to investigate.”

Belle Bautista, 8, said: “We think it happened at the weekend. I think it must have hit a bird and then crashed.”

Kaliah Henry Hinds, also 8, added: “We saw the alien come into our class. It was green and touching our hair.”

Pupils said they could hear news and music coming from the ship and sighted green slime on surfaces.

The appearance of the UFO coincided with the start of the school’s Literacy Week, where pupils were given assignments to explore the mystery through writing and drawing.

Some year groups made alien cup cakes and all years will finish the week by coming into school dressed as aliens.

Simran Sandhu, a year 3 teacher who co-ordinated the week, said: “It’s a literacy assignment which has given them a real stimulus. It’s been great fun to see them get so involved in it.”

Susan Lawrence, head teacher at St Mary’s, said: “The writing that has come out of this has been brilliant. Some of the parents actually believed it was a UFO. We like to create a sense of awe and wonder in the children because through that they learn so much.”
