A strange egg and nest, found on the roof of De Havilland School in Hatfield, prompted fears that a giant eagle or dinosaur was running amok.
But residents and parents needn’t worry as it is all part of a clever way of bringing teaching to life, using the egg as the focus for classes.
The idea is to encourage learning in a completely different way, where it is the children’s imagination that helps drive the lessons.
It was the brainchild of Sarah King, reception teacher at the Travellers Lane school.
She said: “We’ve got a range of things going on from news reporting up in Year 6 to here [in reception] where we’re looking at what’s inside the egg and the whole science side.

“It’s literally embracing the whole curriculum.”
