Peterborough pupils enjoy pizza the action
PUPILS from a Peterborough infants school have enjoyed a lesson in pizza making courtesy of a city restaurant.
Some 90 reception class children from Dogsthorpe Infants School, in Central Avenue, Dogsthorpe, visited Frankie & Benny’s, in Boongate, for a masterclass in how to prepare the traditional Italian dish.
Under the watchful eye of the restaurant’s chefs, the pint-sized pizza-makers had the chance to roll the dough and select their own toppings, before then eating their creations.
The outing tied in with the children’s lessons about food and how it is produced.
Tina Gardner, the school’s events coordinator, thanked the restaurant’s management and staff for the day out.
She said: “The children had an absolutely marvellous time. They came back with balloons, goodie bags and all sorts.
“They had a very nice time, but there was lots of learning going on unbeknownst to them.”
General manager Dale Tedstill said the restaurant welcomed local schools for such events about once a month during term time.
He said: “It’s good for us to build community links and it’s nice for the children. They really get a buzz out of making their own pizzas.”
