Pupils at Bierton Combined School had an unusual start to their week when they arrived at school on Monday morning and found an alien spaceship had crash-landed on their school field.
Police and fire officers attended to investigate the scene but the source of the spaceship has not yet been discovered.
Assistant headteacher Hannah Brunning said: “There has been an incredible buzz around the school.
“The children have been doing pieces of writing about it and they really have been inspired by it.”
The children have their own theories on what happened with one saying: “I thought some naughty aliens had accidentally crashed into our school field.
“They’ve been wandering around our school and left footprints.”
