FOOD SUSTAINABILITY - A problem for the future?

FOOD SUSTAINABILITY - A problem for the future?

I have bundled a range of lessons covering hot topics of sustainability in food production. Bring this challenging subject to life with well planned lessons complete with many hyperlinks to video clips which place into context the issues covered. Lots of extension tasks and opportunities for literacy development and many with homework activities included. The fish sustainability lesson involves an interactive game using popcorn and drinking straws where each student gets to become a fishermen for the lesson and learn first hand about the effects of overfishing - Exciting! I have also included a set of 5 stand alone cover lessons which can be easily administered in an emergency - just photocopy and go! Suitable for delivery by cover supervisors - all contain video link stimulus for each lesson. Topics cover fair trade, organic food, food miles, ethical chicken farming. All are print A4 in size.

KS3 FOOD PREP curriculum management package

KS3 FOOD PREP curriculum management package

This is my interpretation of the 1 - 9 assessment levels which in my school we are using at to help guide them through the process. I have based the assessment outcomes on the exam board that I am using at GCSE level… (KS3 and KS4 version included. One leads directly on from the other) I have included the student self assessment trackers for Y7,8 and 9. The students stick these trackers into the front of their books and they complete the self assessment after each practical (usually as a starter in the next theory lesson. I have added a food science focus which challenges students think about and to record how food science has played its part in their dish. This sets them up nicely for GCSE food prep. Also contains a clear framework for you to record your feedback and add a literacy focus for the student. Helps you to provide evidence of your feedback. Also included are the 3 recipe books which go with these trackers and also the curriculum guide which goes with these three year groups (based on students having 1 lesson per week, for 1 hour for the whole year. Students cook in two half groups so they have 1 theory lesson and then 2 practicals. 1 student cooks, the other helps and then they swap). PLEASE NOTE: THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE RESOURCES WHICH GO WITH THE CURRICULUM MAPS.

'PRINT AND GO' FOOD cover lessons KS3/4

'PRINT AND GO' FOOD cover lessons KS3/4

I have created a range of resources which are easy to use, particularly for non-specialists and cover supervisors with minimal expertise. Topics covered are all linked to the new GCSE food prep course and there are many which cover issues of sustainability. All the resources are ‘print and go’ (with the exception of the nutrition bundle which are more suited to homework tasks) and so in an emergency they are really easy to use. All the KS3 resources contain links to video clips to set the context of the lesson and bring it to life. There are also differentiated tasks. You will require an internet connection to get the full benefit of each resource. For the Provenance - Cereals worksheet you will need to print the map of asia as an extra resource Feedback welcome!

GCSE FOOD SCIENCE - PASTRY INVESTIGATION

GCSE FOOD SCIENCE - PASTRY INVESTIGATION

I used this with my Year 10 class this week. It seemed to work quite well. I supplied the ingredients for them and supplied a selection of fats for them: TREX UNSALTED BUTTER SALTED BUTTER LARD TESCO BAKING MARGARINE The focus of the lesson was really to get them to think about the concept of control batches, changing variables, developing a hypothesis and then testing their hypothesis. I carried this out over a 2 hour lesson (1 hour to plan, 1 hour to make) They completed star diagrams as their testing mechanism. I tried to give them free rein to set up and plan the experiment themselves and the more able students wanted to change the ratios of ingredients to test the effect whereas the less able just made 5 batches and changed the fat type in each one. They wrote up the results and drew conclusions for homework. Have a go, they seemed to quite enjoy themselves and it is also another sneaky opportunity for them to practice making shortcrust pastry! feedback welcome!

SCONE Practical assessment tools

This can be used as an official assessment for Year 7, 8 or 9. There is a recipe book containing two alternative scone recipes. There is also a scone assessment coversheet which is easy to use and understand and allows for self assessment. I have also included the main 1 - 9 assessment grid that I am using for KS3 (a slightly slimmer version of the one I am using at KS4). I have used this assessment with Year 7 and it has provided a really accurate indication of their capabilities and they are aware of how to improve by using the coversheet.
