KS3 Cookery and Nutrition offers students the opportunity to prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes. They will learn about where food comes from; how to maintain a healthy and balanced diet through good nutrition; how to plan and prepare nutritious meals on a budget and explore the working characteristics of ingredients through scientific food investigations. Learners will explore the sensory characteristics of food through analytical and evaluative work.
This is an exciting and practical curriculum area that is supported through theoretical work. Practical work will be assessed via teacher feedback and self-assessment. Learners will be assessed via a design and make assignment at the end of each rotation in Food. The design and make assignments will promote challenge, creativity, food styling and give learners the opportunity to show-off their technical skills.
