From helping the pupils make smiley faces on bread to other colourful arrangements, the school encouraged the importance of maintaining a healthy diet.

School Secretary, Lynette Bowers, said: “This week was the launching of Healthy Eating Week, a national initiative promoting healthy wellbeing and nutrition. “A huge thank you to Waitrose who brought in a variety of exotic tropical fruits for the children to prepare and taste.

“The children took part in a tropical fruits workshop and learnt about where fruits come from.”
