Pupils at an Alfreton school were given a tasty task when chocolate giants Thorntons gave them an enterprise programme to sink their teeth into.

Youngsters at Leys Junior School were asked to come up with a product containing chocolate. Each class then researched the history of chocolate, they looked at the production side as well as designing their own packaging, costing the profit margins and making the product.

The pupils from Maple Class were named the winners for their heart-shaped chocolate wit a honeycombed centre, which they named ‘Maplicious’.

They received their prize of a giant Harry Hop-a-lot. Pictured above are pupils Nathan Briddon, Jayce Carnell, Laura Maxwell and Tegan Culverhouse.

Headteacher Nichola Way said: “We’ve been blown away with the generosity of Thorntons and the children have learnt such a lot about the workplace through this project.”
