HEALTHY eating is on the menu for pupils at Millfield School in Buntingford after they took part in a drama workshop.
The Year 4 children were asked to produce short plays containing a message about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. They performed their pieces to an audience of fellow pupils, and parents, at the school last week.
Class tacher Jill Langley said: "East Herts District Council arranged a drama workshop for us before half- term as part of their Healthy Eating initiative.
"They brought in a professional actor who helped the children come up with some ideas for plays.

Before the workshop began, the children took part in an activity to assess how much they knew about healthy eating.
They did the same at the end of the day.
"There was a big increase in their knowledge as a direct result of the work they had done throughout the day, so it was a very beneficial exercise," said Jill.
