Students put their culinary skills to the test at a special bake off in celebration of the forthcoming royal family.
The Life Education Trust which looks after five schools including Margaretting Primary School in Penny’s Lane, Ingatestone, attended a special Royal Baby Shower Bake Off on Friday, February 1.
Also included in the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) are Francis and Bardsley Academy in Romford - where the event was held, Ben Hurst Primary School in Hornchurch, Dame Tipping Primary School in Havering-atte-Bower, and The Bridge school in Romford.
Maire O’Regan, headteacher at the school told the Recorder: “It was fantastic. The children were able to learn more about their history and British values.
“After Mr Dutnall from Frances Bardsley said a ‘Ready Steady Bake’, the children got to work baking. Everyone was competitive in a nice way.
“The children were having fun while learning a lot of key skills.”
The head boy and the head girl at the Ingatestone school wrote directly to the palace to inform them of what would take place, but have sadly yet to receive a response from Prince Harry or Meghan Markle.
“It was an occasion to work together, share our design and technology skills and have fun with a little element of competition,” said Mrs O’Regan.
“We all had great fun at the bake off and the final winners were The Bridge school.
“Mr Dutnall, the chief executive of the MAT, was happy to be the judge and taste all the cakes.”
