I give this test to my year 10’s after we have completed our first module on NUTRIENTS AND HEALTHY EATING.
I have taken these exam questions from the old Food and Nutrition specification and formatted them into 4 individual homework tasks, although they can be used in class for revision as well. I have included the actual mark scheme for the questions, all formatted so it is easy for the pupils to match up their answers with the mark scheme. Works really well, and has been good practice for the pupils, and espeically valuable for them to be looking at mark schemes, so they know what the exam boards are looking for. I am covering the AQA board, but can be used for others. These questions cover the topics of analysing the nutritional information of 2 products, vegetarians, food safety and environmental issues. Can be used with year 10 or 11, or year 9’s if you want to challenge them

I use this recipe with year 10’s. They make a batch in pairs and divide the mixture between 2 10cm tins. We use steamed sponge pudding tins, as they are small and don’t require long in the oven. You can get Simpsons sponge tins from Morrisons, but historically we used Heinz (can’t find them in the shops). The pupils then have half a lesson marzipaning the cakes, half a lesson flat icing and then just before Christmas we put on santa hats, listen to Christmas music and decorate them. We have a competition that the staff judge to choose the top 3 cakes. The kids love it, brings back some old Christmas traditions as well as teaching them finishing techniques.
Information hand out for pupils on the functional and chemical properties of protein ingredients when setting a chilled or baked dish. Great to aid those teaching the new AQA NEA1 Food Investigtaion task, that are none specialists.
