Year 10 Technology - Snack Attack (Food Technology) - Half Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms T. Williams

WHAT THE COURSE WILL COVER:

Technology uses both practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems that address the needs of people, whilst realising potential opportunities. Adaptation and innovation are at the heart of technological practice with students using these skills to develop solutions to problems.

Students develop a healthy snack or meal for an individual or family. Both practical and theory will be components of the course. A wide range of food skills will be developed to a high standard by students.

 

METHODS OF LEARNING:

Students will engage in a variety of learning opportunities with a good balance between theory and practical work. Students will be encouraged to work with their peers in a cooperative manner, developing skills in problem solving, higher-order thinking and personal reflection and evaluation. Independent learning will take place within assignments allowing students to facilitate their own learning pathways.
