Taste buds are tingling at a Felixstowe school after it was presented with a cooking kit worth £700 by bosses at a new store.

Youngsters at Causton Junior won the equipment in a competition to celebrate the opening of the M&S Simply Food store at Martlesham Heath.

The kit contains a full range of cooking utensils, saucepans, cake trays and scales.

It’s a timely win for the school, as it has just revamped its classroom kitchen, so the new M&S items will fit in perfectly.

Store manager Mike Humphreys went to meet the youngsters, who were thrilled and eager to get cooking, and present them with the kit.

Cooking is still an important part of the school curriculum and we hope that it can be used as a useful tool to spark the imagination and interest of pupils, whilst also helping to instil the importance of healthy eating in every child.”
