This six week Design Tech unit of work is for upper KS2 all about Menus, tasting and cooking.
This block of work is a practical, fun and involves group work activities over the six week block. With the overall objective to create a menu, buy the ingredients and then prepare the food for their chosen menu. Inviting family members into school to share work produced over the past 12 weeks.
There are a number of numeracy lessons that are linked to the DT unit of work which help them prepare for the family invite and presentation these include: Using the 12 & 24 hour clock, timings and preparation. The nutritional value of foods by creating a set of top trump cards, understanding direct and indirect ratio proportion; as well as budgeting, working out cost of ingredients, quantities of ingredients needed in preparing foods.
I would appreciate reviews and comments for this unit of work
