Pupils at a county school were able to get their creative juices flowing thanks to a unique development.

Youngsters at Cleaswell Hill School, in Choppington, found part of their school grounds ‘cordoned off’ following a mysterious discovery.

Hatched eggs and strange prehistoric footprints were discovered in a wildlife section of the garden at the special school.

And some of the footprints were found in and around the school building.

Children were then encouraged to investigate the site and write reports or draw pictures on what they had found and believed had caused the footprints. The project, called ‘The Nest’, had been designed to help students develop their creative writing and learning skills.
