Food Technology

Subject: Food Technology
Contact: Mr J Budgen

Overview

All students study Food Technology at Key Stage 3. Throughout each Key Stage we aim to promote a broad understanding of research skills, developing ideas, subject knowledge, presenting ideas and making skills. The very nature of our subject allows the teacher to contribute to the intellectual, emotional, social, physical and spiritual development of students.

Key Stage 3

Students will work through a range of topics throughout Key Stage 3 to understand the key principles of food technology and becoming independent learners in the kitchen environment. Every 2 weeks students will plan, prepare and cook food items from their recipe book (which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page) and follow practical demonstrations, methods and processes by their food technology teacher. 

Students will complete a range of topics throughout Key Stage 3 to help improve product knowledge and dietary topics leading to a healthy balanced diet.
