A TASTY day of learning greeted pupils at Studlands Rise First School in Royston.

A visit from Kingsmill Bakeries supported Year 3's science topic on diet and teeth as well as their design and technology unit on sandwich snacks.

Throughout the day Kingsmill led a series of workshops which enhanced the pupils' understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet.

They also learned how sandwiches can be part of a daily healthy diet, were given information about food hygiene, and gained an understanding of how foods can be changed to suit a variety of tastes and needs.

A school spokesperson said: "The planned activities were very hands-on, and allowed the children to gain knowledge through practical experience."

The children also had the opportunity to taste a range of breads and to taste and evaluate the sandwiches they made.
