British students got the shock of a lifetime when they walked into their classroom and found their teacher's bloody body on the floor, The Daily Mail reported.
The parents of the students — some as young as 5-years-old — were furious that it was all part of a problem-solving exercise.
The scene was set up to look like the teacher had been attacked, with fake blood splattered across the floor and police tape blocking off the "crime scene," The Daily Mail reported.
The school's principal told The Daily Mail that the scene was staged to cover key skills in the curriculum, from creative writing to science.
Can I put emphasis on the AS YOUNG AS FIVE! This is crazy. What if it had been your kids? They werent warned as far as I can tell. I would be so angry.
