Hopton Primary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, is teaching pupils about instruction writing during this half-term's classes - and on Monday focused on one of life's eternal questions: how to eat a KitKat.

The Year 1 group was tasked with writing a step-by-step guide to enjoying the chocolate wafer bar, but only after head teacher Andy Blakely had made sure their parents and guardians were alright with them eating one in class.

Letters were sent home last week to ask parents to phone the school if they did not want their child to take part.

Miley Cyrus: 'It was hard to balance everything during Hannah Montana'

  Miley Cyrus: 'It was hard to balance everything during Hannah Montana' Miley Cyrus was under a lot of pressure while she was filming Hannah Montana. The 24-year-old Wrecking Ball hitmaker played on the hit TV series from 2006 to 2011, but she admits it was hard balancing her career with her other responsibilities as a young girl. "I liked being in the Disney universe 'cause I didn't know anything else. I knew I was getting to live what I wanted to do," she said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning on Sunday (29Oct17). "I think now that I'm older now, I realize that's a lot to put on a kid." "It's a lot to put on a kid to have them have to get their makeup done and then also balance school and then also have me dress up in a wig," she continued. "It's a little (pageant show) Toddlers and Tiaras." Cyrus has fond memories of starring on the show, but thinks being a child star did "extreme damage" to her psyche. "I definitely look back on it as a good time," she added. "I think what was hard for me was balancing everything. I think it got harder when I started touring as both - I toured as Hannah Montana and as myself. I think that's probably what's a little bit wrong with me now! I mark that up to doing some extreme damage in my psyche as an adult person." "(But) I loved being that character," she continued. "And honestly, music is everything and all people wanna have is great music and for that audience, for what that was, that was great music for kids to listen to. There's a song called Life's What You Make it, so Let's Make it Rock. Never forget that - wise words. That's a good thing to tell kids.

If any of the five and six-year-olds were not allowed to participate, the head teacher said they would be able to watch their friends enjoy the treat instead.

Mr Blakely told The Huddersfield Daily Examiner that while no parents had turned down the opportunity for their child to have a KitKat, he felt it was important to keep them informed about what their kids were getting up to at school.

He said: "It's not about penalising a child if a parent says no. No parents have contacted us to say no.

"But we do activities in food technology or art and design and we may ask parents for permission.

"It was done as a courtesy and out of respect for a parent's choice."

Schools have been under pressure to encourage healthy eating, especially when it comes to packed lunches.

According to a study released last year, just 1.6% of packed lunches in England's primary schools meet nutritional standards, with only one in five including any vegetables or salad.

Students find treasures buried under 100-year-old school .
For the past two years, students have been excavating nearly every closet in the 100-year-old school . They're finding some really old things, some more recent and some much more recent. All of it uncovered with the kind of glee rarely seen in a grade school classroom. "I found three pencils and an eraser stuck to Play-Doh," student Talula Mihalic said. "I seriously did!" "Under there, it's just black, black, mystery things and black," said student Pascal Garcia Ragara. "I just don't want to stop, basically," added student Beckett Landeau.
