Pupils learn how to make pizza

In combined food technology and design lessons, Form 6 were divided into teams and the competition was set.

The brief was to compose and carry out a market research questionnaire for the upper school students, invent a restaurant name, produce a logo, and create a menu. The mobile restaurant was to be set up for 12 hours and serve 100 portions.

After organising their operations, design, finance and managing roles, Form 6 pupils received a Photoshop course, plus some advice on ingredient and staffing costs.

Once their ideas came to fruition, the teams presented them to Mr Perry, Mrs Sharpe and the rest of the class.

Finally, Form 6 made pizzas designs with their favourite toppings, which were cooked in Mr Tristan Sharpe’s, of Caper and Berry, mobile pizza oven, housed in the back of a Land Rover, behind the Chapel.

Linen napkin folding was also part of the morning’s activities. The Form 6 pupils’ work was displayed and a winner will be announced, with all factors considered, at the end of term in the final assembly.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the project and learned some invaluable teamwork skills.
