Six Year 7 students from Pool Academy were picked as winners of a pancake design competition after cooking up some exciting ideas.


The winners included Ruby, Kaitlin, James and Lewis. The group were invited to make them for real in the school during break time.

They created shapes including a cat, a bear and a penguin.

Sam Strana, DT Food teacher, dreamt up the idea after seeing people showing off creative ways to make food on Youtube.


Together with Art teacher Natalie Ellis she launched a competition to find the student with the most colourful and creative pancake art.

Mrs Strana said: “It was an exciting opportunity to combine Art with Food.

“The students had loads of fun but getting the pattern right was tricky.”

She said this is the first time staff at Pool Academy have run the competition.

Her daughter also loved the ideas and had a go making a design at home.
