A TRUNK was mysteriously delivered to pupils at a Steeple Morden Primary School - to inspire them to write.
Pupils were presented with the trunk at an assembly and took part in discussions to find out its background.
Literacy co-ordinator, Victoria Penty said: "The children didn't know what to make of it. They got very excited."
Following a debate, the pupils decided to open the trunk where they found a range of objects inside.

Staff and pupils are now trying to discover the owner of the trunk.
