Dozens of children from Mattishall Primary School, near Dereham, were invited to bring in some truly terrifying entries to the school for the event.

Judging took place on Halloween day, Wednesday October 31, and the entries were judged internally by staff.

Pupils from both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 were picked as the winners and the winning pumpkin carvers were from Year 2 and Year 6.

The school took to social media to share the success of the day and posted on Twitter: “Well done to all the pumpkin carving competition entries, what a wonderful display!”

The entries were displayed in the school’s dining studio for everyone to see and the winners were announced after school during its book sale.
