Pupils at a school in Pocklington have had a lesson in healthy eating and physical activity, thanks to an innovative form of drama.

Pocklington Community Junior School children were entertained by a Change4Life BIG Difference theatre performance.

BIG Difference is an interactive performance which promotes the key Change4Life messages by encouraging pupils to eat more healthily and increase their physical activity levels.

It uses a form of drama known as theatre in education to put across the health messages in a new and enthusiastic way, followed by a workshop to discuss what the children have learned.
