THEY are always a favourite on any kids’ menu, but pupils were given a lesson in how the British classic fish and chips are made.

More than 25 children from Northborough Primary School, in Church Street, Northborough, were treated to a lunchtime out at Boundary Fish and Chips, in High Street, Market Deeping, on Monday.

The restaurant’s chefs gave an insight into the process of making the national dish and the pupils learnt about how the restaurant is run and how the menu works.

Reception teacher Sue West said: “We wanted to set up a classroom cafe to teach the children how to read menus, take orders and deal with money and on Monday they got first hand experience of that.

“They watched a DVD of how the fish are caught and one about how the potatoes are grown and then the chef gave a lesson in how the fish is prepared and fried.

“And then they all really enjoyed eating their dinner.”
