Through practical work, Year 7 students are taught basic cookery skills, applying the principles of food provenance, sensory analysis, food safety and basic nutrition.

With healthy food and improved nutrition as the central theme, teaching is mostly based on the Eatwell Guide, which outlines the types and proportions of foods needed for a balanced diet.

Importantly, there’s a strong focus on working safely using the cookers and kitchen equipment, and learning how to weigh and measure their ingredients and follow recipes independently.

Each dish on the curriculum has been carefully selected to reinforce essential techniques, such as safe preparation, knife skills, how to handle certain foods, and cooking methods.

Dishes include:

  • Crumble
  • Cookies
  • Fresh Fruit Salad
  • Couscous Salad
  • Scones
  • Quick Pizza
  • Coleslaw
  • Rock Cakes
  • Chicken Wraps
  • Salad Niçoise
