Hopton Primary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, is teaching pupils about instruction writing during this half-term's classes - and on Monday focused on one of life's eternal questions: how to eat a KitKat.

The Year 1 group was tasked with writing a step-by-step guide to enjoying the chocolate wafer bar, but only after head teacher Andy Blakely had made sure their parents and guardians were alright with them eating one in class.

Letters were sent home last week to ask parents to phone the school if they did not want their child to take part.

School asks permission for kids to eat KitKats . A Year 1 class wanted pupils to have a break - but the school has raised eyebrows by writing to parents for permission first.

If any of the five and six-year-olds were not allowed to participate, the head teacher said they would be able to watch their friends enjoy the treat instead.

Mr Blakely told The Huddersfield Daily Examiner that while no parents had turned down the opportunity for their child to have a KitKat, he felt it was important to keep them informed about what their kids were getting up to at school.

He said: "It's not about penalising a child if a parent says no. No parents have contacted us to say no.

"But we do activities in food technology or art and design and we may ask parents for permission.

"It was done as a courtesy and out of respect for a parent's choice."

Schools have been under pressure to encourage healthy eating, especially when it comes to packed lunches.
