When pupils from Hillcrest Primary School in Downham arrived at school on Thursday, they were shocked to discover a giant nest with eggs in the playground.

The teachers of Hillcrest had made the nest and eggs for the students to encourage imagination and to inspire the writing of the pupils.

All the pupils loved the idea and this was shown in the fact files and stories the students made afterwards.

Alexandra King, English leader, commented: “It has been an incredible day for the whole school.”
