Award-winning Exmouth cook Sue Stoneman taught the pupils how to cook outside.

Representatives from East Devon District Council’s conservation team also held a session in the on-site forest school.

The children were also taught about the importance of nutrition by a visitor from the Sugar Smart initiative.

The week of activities culminated in key stage one pupils visiting the town’s beach.

Sarah Padbury, head of learning at Littleham Primary School, said: “In addition to raising attainment in literacy and maths as a school, we embrace the ethos that a healthy, happy child learns best. The health and wellbeing week provided many opportunities for all our children and their families to explore the many ways we can keep a healthy body and healthy mind.”
