A DALEK invasion took place at Wetherby High School last Friday but fear not as it was all in the best humour.
Rather than looking to exterminate humans they were at the Hallfield Lane site with Doctor Who author Daniel Blythe to meet young Earthlings.
Senior assistant headteacher Mark McKelvie said: “It was absolutely fantastic.
“In the morning we had all 210 Year 4 pupils from seven primary schools - Crossley Street, Collingham, Wetherby St James, Deighton Gates, Bardsey, Shadwell and Highfield.
“Daniel presented a talk about the Doctor Who TV series and discussed his own writing.”
Youngsters had the chance to buy a signed copy of Daniel’s book and many had their picture taken with the author and a full-sized Dalek.
Organiser Key Stage 3 English teacher Matt Shaftoe said: “It was great day which was a fun and informative way to encourage reading.”
