Children from Thames Primary Academy in South Shore at the Lemon Tree Indian restaurant in Poulton for their educational visit.

These youngsters were served up a treat when they went on their latest educational trip – to a nearby Indian restaurant.

The pupils from Thames Primary Academy, on Severn road, South Shore, have been studying Indian culture in class and staff decided to give them an authentic taste of life in the country.

So when the owners of the Lemon Tree, on Breck Road, Poulton, offered to open its doors to the children and cook up a few of its speciality dishes, the school was only to happy to come along.

Year four class teacher Andrea Davidson said: “The children absolutely loved it. It was a great experience for them.

“Most of the pupils had never tried Indian food before so it was a first for them.

“The owner put on a three-course banquet where the children got to try poppadoms and different types of curry. It was brilliant.”

In class, the youngsters have been studying at how life differs around the world, particularly focussing on the Indian village of Chembakolli, in the south of the country.

Mrs Davidson added: “It’s part of an Indian topic we are looking at in class.

“We have been looking at comparing and contrasting the lives they lead compared to ours and how the culture differs.

“The children have also looked at things like Indian dance.”
