YOUNGSTERS at a Welling primary school were shocked to find a giant egg in their playground yesterday.

The area around the egg at Eastcote Primary School, in Eastcote Road, was taped off by a PCSO, who then stood guard for the rest of the day.

Children had many questions about the egg wondering how it got there, where it came from and what might be inside it.

They put their writing skills to the test by creating reports for museums and making posters as well as interviewing eye witnesses.

Headteacher Miranda Hornett said: "The egg appeared in our school grounds and has got everyone talking.

"It’s wonderful to see the children so inspired and determined to solve the mystery."
