Peter­bor­ough pupils en­joy pizza the ac­tion

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

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.”
