Welcome to Food Tech
In food tech we explore a range of topics, which allow your children to try new and exciting food whilst learning a variety of essential skills for life. We aim to create a dish each week, which can contribute towards a family meal. Children enjoy cooking sessions, as they feel free to make mistakes and learn from them in order to progress their skills in the future. We aim to create self sufficient young minds with a passion for healthy eating and exploring new and exciting ways to cook.
For the spring term in Life skills Class L3 will focus on healthy snacks and look at sugar content in other snacks.
L4 & L5 will look at food on a budget which will include researching ingredients, pricing and how much a meal costs per portion.
As L6 have the Sheffield Blitz as their class topic, we will look into the effect of different baking tins and compare what people used to bake in comparison to what we bake today.
L7 & L8 will have the opportunity to research the origins of food and will have Food Tasting as their focus. U1 will experiment with different Spicy Foods and compare which is their favourite.
U2 & U3 will where they will have a go at creating different dishes such as Tapas or Chinese and many others.
Finally U4 & U5 will create different types of Stews & Soups, some of which will be made in a slow cooker to explore the convenience of batch cooking.
I look forward to developing our pupils skills further in Life skills in the New Year and giving them the opportunity to try something new.
