The first thing my daughter said to me this morning was "can I have a pancake mum?" and given it's Shrove Tuesday, how could I refuse?

We had a great cooking lesson from Lynn who has worked at the school for 25 years. As with all shoots like this there are great moments that won't always make the final edit and this out-take is one of children being themselves.
