Pizza Role Play

Do you work in a Pizza shop or restaurant or know anyone who does? If so, we really need your help!

To make this as authentic as possible we would love to have some pizza boxes, cups, menu’s etc. for the children to use. If you can help in any way please let the office staff know or take you Pizza goodies to the Foundation Unit. Thank you
