Ipswich butcher George Debman yesterday showed year one pupils at Britannia Primary School how to make sausages.
Class teacher Lindsey Imlach said: “I don't know who's been looking forward to it more - the children or the teachers!”
Various events, including a visit to Jimmy's Farm at Wherstead, talks by allotment owners and cookery lessons, have improved pupils' awareness of where their food comes from.
Mrs Imlach said: “It has been fascinating to see the children's reaction to their experiences and rewarding to recognise how much their awareness of where their food comes from has improved throughout the term.”
The recent changes to the school canteen's menu inspired Mrs Imlach to incorporate the events into her class's curriculum.

She added: “We used to contract our school meals from an external supplier, but now our own catering department serves up a varied and healthy daily menu.
“They aim to source local and seasonal produce where possible. I wanted to extend this into the classroom and teach the children about how food gets from field to plate.”
