Through a variety of creative and practical activities, children are taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in the process of designing and making. Through exploration, performing practical tasks and evaluating, the pupils will gain necessary skills. These skills will help them to be successful in a technological world.
Pupils will be taught how to cook and the importance of a healthy diet. Cooking is an important life skill that enables the pupils to feed themselves and prepares them for life.
The pupils will work in a range of contexts and gain confidence in themselves. Pupil’s can be supported at home by being encouraged to develop their cooking skills. They also need to be encouraged to talk about healthy food and have an understanding of where food comes from.
