Curriculum: Food Key Stage 3


At KS3 students will study food and cookery: Students will be taught to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and health through the Eatwell Guide and government tips on healthy eating. They will practice a range of cooking techniques safely and hygienically including selecting and preparing ingredients using utensils and electrical equipment and applying heat in different ways.

They will cook a repertoire of predominantly savoury dishes so that they are able to feed themselves and others a healthy and varied diet whilst learning about the source, seasonality and characteristics of a range of ingredients as well as foods from different cultures. Students are also given the opportunity to demonstrate their interest and skills in food and cookery through extracurricular workshops and competitions.
