Recipes all say rolled oats but I bought jumbo, does it matter? I'm just about to add them, will I poison dcs whole class??!!

Jumbo oats (IMHO) make much better flapjacks than the smaller ones. smile

Done! They look great, thanks smile

Brill. Funnily enough am about to make some myself, if you come back to this post would you mind posting the recipe you use? I always get a variable result (125g butter and sugar, 75g golden syrup and 250g oats, which I think I got off the internet).

I get variable results too. There's a whole article agonising about the tricky blighters here:

grin thanks so much for that link, I think I've seen it some time ago, but will revisit it.

You need condensed milk! Its a classic mumsnet recipe from soupdragon...
250g porridge oats (the cheap type, not large ones),
150g Butter,
2 generous table spoons Golden Syrup
half a tin condensed milk,
100g demerera sugar NB: reduce this or leave it out entirely. IMO they are too sweet with this amount of sugar in.

Dc3 is dairy intolerant, and still BF, so the condensed milk is out at the moment! (Probably explains the variable success using the naff dairy free alternatives!) but thank you grin I've seen soup dragons recipe mentioned before so I shall indeed give it a go when the dairy ban is over!
