Food and Nutrition

Intent:

The food curriculum at Twickenham School aims to ensure that students are taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating in order to be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle now and in the future.

Theoretical knowledge is learnt through practical activities and experimentation. Students are encouraged to be imaginative, and take risks. Lessons are taught in a well-equipped, specialist classroom.

In Year 10, a wider range of specialist skills and cooking techniques in line with the AQA GCSE focus on five key areas: 

• Food, nutrition and health

• Food science

• Food safety

• Food choice

• Food provenance

In Year 11, students complete their two non-exam assessments as well as sitting their exam:

• Task 1: Food investigation - Students' understanding of the working characteristics, functional and chemical properties of ingredients This includes practical investigations into the properties and characteristics of food, which are a compulsory element of the task.

• Task 2: Food preparation assessment - Students' knowledge, skills and understanding in relation to the planning, preparation, cooking, presentation of food and application of nutrition related to the chosen task. Students will prepare, cook and present a final menu of three dishes within a single period of no more than three hours, planning in advance how this will be achieved.
