Pupils at St Martin’s Primary School, Fangfoss, recently held a bake off competition.

As part of Class 4’s design and technology project the pupils were looking at bread making and decided what better way to learn about bread than to hold a special “bake off”.

Pupils create their dough shapes before they are baked.

The school recruited the help of two bakers from Pattacakes in Dunnington.

Vicky and Claire came in to give the students some advice and guidance and agreed to be the judges on the final day.

The children made a range of dough flavours and bread shapes and the competition was very stiff.

Class 4 teacher Theresa Brindley said: “All the children produced a successful bread product and we may have a future bake off winner in our midst.”
