Children were offered the chance to create Toffee Apple Muffins using the cooking facilities at Pool Academy. Many of the children had never baked alone before and they found it enjoyable.

Mr Alston, teacher at Rosemellin Primary School, said: “The pupils are having a lovely time. It is a great experience for them. It is lovely for them to have the opportunity to do something in a proper kitchen environment. It is the first time many of them have baked like this.”

Finlay, Rosemellin pupil, said: “This was my first time making muffins alone. I really enjoyed it.”

Tyler, pupil, said: “I have made a pizza before but it is the first time I have baked on my own.”

Ella, pupil, said: “This was the first time I baked on my own and I really enjoyed it. I have never cracked an egg on my own before.”

Mrs Strana, Pool Academy Teacher, said: "It was lovely to see all the children get involved. They all seemed to enjoy themselves and really got stuck in. Their toffee apple muffins came out a treat especially as some of them had never baked on their own before."

Pencoys Primary School and Treloweth School also attended during the day to bake muffins.
