I don't think that's on at all and I'd be p'd. I'd want to clarify with the teacher what actually happened and if they did withhold food as a punishment I'd be seeking an assurance from the principal it won't happen again. I can't imagine it is usual practice.
I'd rather see them brought back in 10 minutes early to complete the work (although I realise that's not always practical). I regularly am parent helper in DD1's year 2 class and some kids just muck up all the time. I'm not surprised they don't get their work finished. They just can't sit still. What's the teacher supposed to do? If they don't get all their words down it's often not easy just to do it later as the class lessons have moved on.
If it's really important not sure how else the teacher gets them to do the work (assuming they are in that position because of mucking up not just because they are slower).
