MFL Bake-off Competition

MFL Bake-off Competition celebrates the European Day of Language 

We were so excited to see such wonderful entries in our annual MFL Bake-off Competition which took place on Tuesday 27 September. Celebrating the European Day of Language, the competition is open to both staff and pupils who wish to submit a cake with an MFL inspired theme.

Judges Mr Simpson and Ms Mountfield were incredibly impressed with the taste, presentation and creativity of all the bakes representing a variety of different cultures. Many thanks also to Mrs Dickinson, Miss Freeman and Mr Campbell for submitting a delicious lemon meringue pie, incredible Mississippi mud pie and fantastic flapjacks!
