Food Skills 2 KS3Food skills are taught once a week in a newly-fitted kitchen at KS3. Pupils explore a range of cuisines from around the world and develop key skills in preparing, cooking, serving, and storing food. The Healthy Plate is promoted and pupils are encouraged to broaden their diets and discover healthy alternatives to fast food favourites. The practical food lessons are supplemented in Science, where pupils complete units of study covering; Life Processes, Why We Need Food, Types of Nutrients, Balanced Diet, What are RDAs, and Exercise and Health Living.
