Pupils get a taste for Indian studies
MARLBOROUGH Primary School pupils had a taste of Indian culture when they dined at an Indian restaurant, many for the first time.
Year 6 pupils visited the Bengal Tiger Lily in Nether Alderley with their class teacher and assistant headteacher Sarita Bailey as part of their learning about Hinduism.
They enjoyed a selection of traditional Indian food, as well as finding out how it was cooked.
Mrs Bailey said: “The children loved the food and wanted more.
“The restaurant owner and chef, Juber, was fantastic with them. He was so friendly and informative.
“He gave them a korma dish which he made sure was mild but the children wanted to try the hotter food!”
Poppadoms and naan bread were also on the menu and even those who had never tried Indian food before found something they liked.
Mrs Bailey laughed: “The meal was very kindly offered as complimentary by the restaurant but the children were all putting their hands up for seconds!”
She added: “They all had a great time eating with their friends and wrote in their reports about the day that they had had the best trip ever.”
