Great British Bake Off Star Kate Barmby helped year six pupils make carrot scones - by the end of the day, more than 500 had been made.

Anne Webster, who helps with the year six class, said: “It was a fantastic event, I am so happy she came and so are the children.

“I have been a friend of Kate’s for a while now and so it was wonderful she agreed to come.

“She also came to assembly to answer questions from the children about being on TV. It was a brilliant day.”

Kate, from Norfolk, left the competition in Batter Week after being tasked with making Yorkshire puddings in an oven.
