Schoolchildren at Wargrave Primary in Newton-le-Willows had a real taste of Italy this week with a class project they could sink their teeth into.

The year one pupils became chefs for a day as they dished-out tasty pizzas at local Italian restaurant Ariete.

The children, who have been learning about senses of taste and smell, were given the chance to design their own pizzas with the help of restaurant manager Eduardo Carcamo.

Proudly sporting their chef hats and aprons, they rolled their own dough and got to choose their favourite toppings.

Mr Carcamo then invited the children to sit down and join him for an authentic restaurant dining experience.

Teacher Amanda Epstein brought the children to the restaurant to encourage them to expand on their vocabulary by describing what their hand-made pizzas tasted like.

She said: “We have been running this project for a number of years now. It’s a fun and creative way for the children to learn about their senses.

“I’d like to thank Eduardo and the team for welcoming us once again. Every visit is as good as the last and we’re already looking forward to our next visit.”
