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.
Its an exciting time this term for Life skills. We will be focusing on Christmas or celebratory dishes.
L3, L4 & L5 will focus on Christmas recipes and goodies.
L6 will be looking at Pack up Foods where they can make their own adaptations to the typical lunch box and add in some Christmas treats too.
L7 & L8 will be looking at different Christmas cakes starting from the basic Yule Log and building up to a fruit Christmas cake.
U1 will be exploring Typical Greek food however we will also look at what Greek food is eaten at Christmas time too.
U2 & U3 will concentrate on Finger Foods which will give them some ideas for preparing for a Christmas Party.
U4 & U5 will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of preparing a Celebration dinner and also serve this to a small group of guests.
On many occasions pupils will have the opportunity to take their food home, however we do encourage our pupils to learn how to serve one another, so on some occasions they will be able to try their dish in school and evaluate their dish.
We hope our pupils enjoy this new term in Life Skills. Look out for Twitter updates.
