Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

At Molehill Primary Academy, the year five children in Falcon class arrived to quite a surprise! Police tape had cordoned off an area with a suspicious looking machine and slime trailing into the bushes. Having seen a report about the event on the BBC news website (thanks to a little IT magic), the children were convinced that an alien spacecraft had landed.

A BBC journalist (which was really Mr Etheridge) emailed the class and asked for a written report and video of the strange events.

Later in the day, the children received a strange video from a Cyborg, demanding answers about the human race.

It is fair to say that the children had an interesting first day back at school and are well and truly immersed in their topic of ‘Earthlings’ – part of the PYP transdisciplinary theme of “Who are we?”.
