EXCLUSIVE: SCHOOL children are being prepared for an announcement that aliens have visited Earth, by taking part in dummy UFO crash site exercises, self-styled UFO experts have claimed.
They claim the school UFO exercises are being carried out so it comes as less of a shock to them when they are older.
The official line is that the exercises take place as part of a project to inspire creative writing among the youngsters.
But some so-called UFO experts have suggested it is to get them used to seeing “the reality of a UFO on Earth when the truth comes out”.
One of the latest event was held at Our Lady of Lourdes RC Primary School in Wanstead, east London.
The East London Guardian reported “children were left bemused when they found a spaceship crashed in the playground”.
Ufologist Steve Mera, who runs Manchester Aerial Phenomena Investigation Team (MAPIT), floats the idea that the events could be to condition children for a future announcement of alien life at UFO conferences up and down the country.
Speaking at an event in Warminster, he showed images of the fake crash scenes from schools.

“Some people say it is to prepare school children for a future announcement that UFOs exist.”
Another conference speaker who has raised the suggestion is former Whitby town councillor Simon Parkes, who claims to be contacted by aliens.
He told a UFO conference in Watford the exercises were a “false flag” so that children were not shocked in the future when aliens arrive on Earth.
The www.thetruthseeker.co.uk conspiracy theory website even features an article discussing the theory.
It said: “There seems to be a growing trend among schools to stage a UFO crash, and then teach students how to react, as well as to “properly” investigate and report on the incident.
“It sounds like a lot of fun, and a great way to fire up a student’s imagination as well as writing skills.

“Um, were any of the officers speaking from experience?
“Are UFO drills becoming something of a routine part of the curriculum in the UK?
“It’s certainly becoming more and more of a common event. Each time, it’s a joint exercise put in place by the school and local law enforcement.
“No doubt all the kids participating in the above had great fun. However, as we said in the introduction, it may well serve a more sinister purpose.
“The real objective may be to condition the kids into unconsciously accepting the idea of aliens landing on earth; an event, staged or otherwise, that the elite could then exploit for their own ends.”
But those involved in the activities insist they are a harmless part of the school day.
In Wanstead, yesterday, police Community Support Officers Harjinder Singh and Alan Winston were there to help solve the mystery.
The “crash” was said to be set up by the teachers as part of World Space Week.
Science Lead and Reception teacher Mrs Sarah Fisher told the local paper: “We wanted to get the children enthusiastic about space.
“We got in early to set up the crash scene, which we made out of bits and pieces we had around school.
“Our PCSOs were great and even cordoned the scene off with police tape.
“The children had lots of ideas about how the spaceship got there – they were all very excited.”
In October 2013 the Independent reported on a highly-realistic looking UFO crash site at North Harringay Primary School, in North London, which included a real police officer guarding as an apparent forensics officer took samples behind the cordon.
The paper reported: “Only half the craft was visible after apparently smashing into the tarmac and children were allowed closer to inspect the UFO after samples had been collected.”
Head teacher Helen Connor told The Independent: “A very talented parent, David Willshaw, built the space craft in a limited amount of time and kindly dressed as a forensic detective to help with the staging of the crash. A local Police officer, PC Glyn Kelly, also agreed to attend the scene to add to the mystery of the crash. We were very lucky that the fog added to the atmosphere.
“Both children and parents were excited by the scene of the crash and the rest of the school day revolved around discussions as to what could have happened.”
