Year 10 will be completing a practice non-exam assessment that will allow them to research a world cuisine of their choice. Due to the BBC Good Food Show trip being cancelled this year, BBC Good Food are continuing to support schools with the exam tasks by launching two new aspects to their website that Year 10 students can use, as well as skills videos and a bank of recipes.
One feature supports the research section of ‘task 2’ and ‘world cuisines’ and can be accessed here:
The second feature looks at cooking during lockdown and can be accessed with the following link:
Key stage 3 students are following advice on healthy diets and are submitting pictures of their products on Class Charts.
Year 7 have made pizza toast and healthy sandwiches, with some students making their own bread using resources and videos from the ‘Food – a Fact of Life’ website.
Year 8 are making stir fry’s and healthy pasta meals to serve to their families. These meals include the skills of sauce making and safe handling of meat as an ingredient.
Year 9 have made bread as a staple food, serving the bread with an accompaniment. Photos for these products will be added to the CAT faculty twitter account (@CATfacultyPGHS) so that students can share their amazing skills and find inspiration during lockdown.
Follow the CAT Faculty on twitter (CATfacultyPGHS) where there will be updates and competitions from the British Nutrition foundation and food a fact of life. Advice on activities and remote learning as well as food education will also be featured.
I have been overwhelmed by the responses and photos submitted by students since lockdown has occurred and am excited by the skills shown preparing, presenting, and serving family meals by students from every year group. Below is a selection from across key stage 3.
