A visit to Pizza Express
On Monday we used Google Earth to follow the route from school to Pizza Express. We watched Big Cook, Little Cook make pizza, so that we knew what we would have to do. We talked about ingredients and what we might use. We set up the house to be a pizzeria, and made our own paper pizzas. Mrs F and A made a pizza oven to cook the pizzas in. We learned how to write down orders and to check menus to see what is available. We also used an online site to make pizzas and that gave us another chance to talk about online safety.
On Tuesday, we left school at 9:10 to get to Pizza Express. The weather was cold, but dry, which was fine with us! When we got there, the manager, Gemma, told us about the history of Pizza Express and how it was started, and then we sent into two groups. One group did taste testing and the other group made margarita pizza, and then we swapped over.
After we had finished both sessions, we came back. Everyone was really nicely behaved and tried their best to answer lots of the questions.
We took a lot of photographs, but here are some of our favourites!
We were back in time for lunch and everyone took pizza home for tea. Lovely!
