HIGH-FRYING youngsters enjoyed an educational visit to a popular fish and chip shop.

The foundation pupils at Hart Primary School took a morning out of the classroom to get some fresh air and find out all about the stages involved in serving up the culinary delight of fish and chips.

The children were welcomed at The Almighty Cod, on the seafront, where they were given a tour of the kitchen.

They then watched a video showing how the fish were caught and then frozen and prepared within hours of the capture.

The youngsters were then told how the fish were battered and fried at the shop before being served up.

And after learning all about the process involved with frying the fish, the youngsters were then treated to some fish and chips themselves for lunch.

Jessica Harris, foundation stage teacher at the school, in Hart Village, said: “It was a fantastic trip to Seaton Carew.

“The children learnt all about how the fish are caught and prepared at the fish shop and then had the chance to ask their own questions.

“The children all really enjoyed the morning and they loved the fish and chips, they were delicious.

“It was a really enjoyable trip for all of the children but it was also very educational, it was nice for the children to find out about how the fish and chips are prepared.”

After enjoying their fish and chip lunch and a tub of ice cream, the children then went for a walk on Seaton Carew front where they found out more about the other restaurants and takeaways nearby.

Miss Harris added: “We were really lucky that the weather stayed nice and sunny for us.

“I would like to thank the parents for their support and prompt replies, all of the staff who came along and helped and The Almighty Cod for being so generous and accommodating.

“Most of all I would like to thank the children for their super behaviour, they really enjoyed themselves.”
