Sutton pupils have made themselves at home in Jelson Homes’ new three-bedroom show home.

Around 30 pupils from Mapplewells Primary School were given a flavour of cooking in the new build as they created their own healthy fruit salad in its kitchen.

Jackie Woodward, sales manager for Jelson Homes, said: “It was great to be able to welcome the children through the front door of our home and give them the chance to learn something about food in a non-classroom environment. They all behaved excellently and were a joy to work with.”

The pupils were split into three teams of ten, with each one taking it in turns to utilise the home’s kitchen, while the remaining two teams spent time colouring and making their own fruit characters with stickers, wool and felt tips.

Their teacher, Miss Owen said: “This was the first time that the children had been out of the classroom and they had a marvellous time creating their own take on their fruit salad. They enjoyed eating it, too!”
