Youngsters from St John’s Primary School in Spalding had an educational outing to the town’s Sir John Gleed School, where they learned how to make bread.

Head of food technology Sue Rees and food technology teacher Zoe Bryant showed children to weigh out the ingredients, mix, knead, shape and bake the dough.

Pupils made cottage loaves, twists, plaits and even hedgehogs – and were allowed to take their baking home with them.

Mrs Bryant said the Sir John Gleed School regularly opens its doors to primary school pupils to give them a taste of “big school”.

She said: “I suppose it’s just different from what they normally experience in their primary schools because we have bespoke facilities.”

The primary pupils were given a helping hand on the day by the Gleed students.
