ENORMOUS eggs found in the grounds of Annecy School by pupils were cordoned off until advice was given by the council.
The ‘unofficial advice’ was to take the eggs to the Seaford school’s Rainbow room and keep them warm with a lamp and heater.
Children from Diamond Class, who were at the end of their PE lesson when the eggs were found, believed they saw them move and heard a cheeping sound coming from them.
The eggs were later transferred to a private zoo at an unknown location.
It was all part of book week, which kicked off with a surprise pantomime performed by staff.
Miss Rickards played Jack and Mr Mellor caused much hilarity in the role of Jack’s Mother, while Miss McGonigle played a cameo role as a wizard who gave Jack magic beans.
Local children’s author Giles Paley-Phillips visited the school, read extracts from his book ‘The Fearsome Beastie’ during an assembly and answered questions.
On the final day of book week children and staff dressed as their favourite book character and a special assembly was held.
Each class shared their creative writing based on the week’s events and prizes were awarded for the best costumes voted for by children.
