We were so excited for our Pizza Express trip. When we got to the restaurant, we all washed our hands and got a numbered hat! It was our job to remember our number. We stood around the table, with our aprons on, ready to make our pizzas! First we received our pizza dough and had to create the crust by using 3 fingers to push the dough the edge of the pizza tin. Then we added tomato sauce, cheese and finally oregano and pepper for some seasoning. Our special numbers were called out and placed on our pizzas so we knew which one we made. At last our pizzas were ready to go in the oven!
While our pizzas were cooking, we got a tour of the restaurant. In small groups, we saw the kitchen, fridges and freezers. We saw the fridge where the pizza dough was kept and where the plates, cutlery and cups are washed after we’ve eaten our meals. We then saw the kitchen. This is where all our food is prepared and cooked. We then went to see the big fridges at the back of the restaurant. Here we saw all the drinks and where the food items are kept, like, tomatoes, mushrooms, sweet corn and lettuce. We also saw the freezer where the dough balls and ICE CREAM were! While a group was being showed around, the rest of us enjoyed watching our pizzas being cooked, sliced and put in boxes for us.
Before we left the restaurant, we had to get ready. We collected our belongings and wore a special ‘Whitings Hill Primary’ Hi-vis jacket. We had to walk sensibly down the street and when crossing the roads. We LOVED getting on the 384 bus and sitting with our friends. Along our journey we spotted familiar places like the roads we live on, Barnet hospital, bus stops we use and of course our school. When we got back to school, we washed our hands, got our water bottles and had a slice of our pizza.
