It was a taste of Italy for nursery pupils from Monkhouse Primary School.

They visited Frankie and Benny’s restaurant in Spalding for an extra special dining experience.

The nursery school group of three and four year olds looked the part in their chef hats.

In groups of six they were set to work to prepare their very own pizzas.

They were given a variety of ingredients to choose from.

Once the designing with their preferred toppings was done the food was sent off to the oven for cooking.

Jackie Willows, teacher at the school, said: “Each child made their own pizza.”

“If they didn’t finish it all they took it home in a little tub.”

While the lunch was cooking they were visited by a special guest.

Jackie said: “The chef at the restaurant came out and spoke to them while we waited for the pizzas to cook.”

As judges of their own masterpieces the pupils stayed at the restaurant to enjoy their pizzas for lunch.

Some of them clearly rated their handywork and managed to eat the whole thing.

Others chose to save the best bits to share with their family at home.

Adding extra excitement to the day was their transport, feeling like their older peers the children were delighted to travel to the restaurant on the school bus.

Jackie said at some points she thought they were going to be more excited about the coach.
