Bingo card. I used this with my hospitality and catering year 10 class, as a cover lesson. They watched an episode of Masterchef and were asked to mark their cards for every word or phrase they heard. Card includes cooking terms. Can be adapted for any topic or subject area.
I do this lesson with my year 8’s, as we have been working on nutrients. It will require a computer room and involves researching the calorie content of a range of Christmas lunch foods, and calculating the total amount of calories in their Christmas lunch. There is a crossword starter and an extension task, to work out how long it will take to burn these calories off. Should fill a one hour lesson nicely.
I use this activity with my year 7’s. It requires them to research where all the ingredients for their Christmas lunch come from, and calculate the total food miles. It is a one hour lesson activity, and includes a wordsearch starter. A computer room will be required.
7 theory for lessons for year 9, on the Theme Food Choice along with a booklet to complete all of the work in, no requirement for handouts etc…
I have put this lesson together to introduce the new requirements of Food Preparation and Nutrition AQA assessment for 2021. There is a starter that recap their knowledge and I have allowed time for questions, as I am sure there will be many.
Information sheet on the functional and chemical properties of chemical raising agents to help pupils write the research section of NEA 1 AQA Food Investigation. Includes sources of information, so pupils can refer to these.
Guidance and suggestions for possible investigations for NEA1 AQA Food Investigation task 2019/20, chemical raising agents. Gives pupils a few variations of investigations along with advice. Provides basic recipes for scones, fairy cakes and biscuits that can be adapted as part of their investigations.
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
This is a power point I have put together to introduce to the year 11’s to the NEA Food Preparation task. I have included guidance to help the students choose the right theme for them.
Powerpoint with vitamins A, B, C, D. E and K and minerals: calcium, iron and sodium. Used to introduce micronutrients to year 10 pupils, who are struggling to remember the functions, sources and deficiencies. Can also be used for revision in year 11. Includes links on internet and suggestions of ways to remember facts.
This is a powerpoint with Christmas food facts and trivia for the end of term. There are 3 categories: Anagrams, True or False and trivia questions, all food related. Includes answers and information regarding the facts.
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.
Three information booklets for pupils or none specialist teachers needing some guidance, for the research of the AQA Food Investigation Task 2018-19 for NEA1 Functional and Chemical properties of: Protein for setting mixtures Shortcrust pastry Batters Feel free to tweek and edit for your own use.
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.
Tried and tested recipes, on a sheet to handout to pupils with room for them to add the dates they are cooking. The year 10 recipes also includes a recipe for Christmas Cake that I cook with them in small steamed sponge tins (Simpson pudding from Morrisons).
