KS3 Curriculum Guide - Year 9 Food & Nutrition
Rotation within DTFood and Nutrition   
In the first rotation (8 weeks), students will build on their knowledge of food preparation and nutrition theory looking at the links between science in methods of heat transfer, the effects of protein or lack of protein in the diet and completing a murder mystery style food poisoning case study. They will be challenged in a technical exercise where they will make bread rolls and burgers from scratch and are encouraged to adapt recipes for presentation, flavour and to show their individual flair. They will be coached on writing and sticking to time plans to enable them to achieve all of this in lessons that are 100 minutes long. In the second rotation (5 weeks), students will be testing, analysing and researching canapes to enable them to write their own success criteria and culminating in a chance to WOW us by completing a design and make show stopper set of canapes for an end of KS3 BFS food party
Assessment: There will be practical and written assessments. The mid point assessment at the end of the first rotation will include a technical challenge based on skills developed and students will create bread rolls and burgers with the opportunity to show flair and creativity in flavours as well as a written assessment. The end of unit assessment will be a Showstopper Challenge where students will design and create a canapes for an end of KS3 party using theoretical knowledge and skills developed over the two rotations. This will be accompanied by a written assessment.Key Words and Terms
