She said: "He was wonderful with the children, both engaging and humorous in equal measure. During the talk, he had children and staff acting out some of the more gory aspects of history.
"We were all totally enthralled for the full 45 minutes that he spoke. It was a memorable experience."
Year 5 pupil Will added: "Some parts of history are boring, but with his methods he made them seem really exciting.
"His books have inspired me to write about history more often. I had never watched Blackadder before, but now I want to watch more of Baldrick."
