Cooking and healthy eating is an important life skill. Our curriculum is focused on preparing healthy dishes safely and hygienically. Students are given the opportunities to explore healthy eating and balanced diets and learn about the nutritional needs of different groups in society.
Throughput the foundation years pupils will cook a range of predominantly savoury dishes so that they are able to provide themselves and others with a healthy and varied diet. Pupils will develop skills in food preparation, cooking techniques, health and safety, and hygiene. We concentrate on teaching students practical cookery skills to help them understand the characteristics of ingredients and about their diet and nutritional needs. This helps students to develop the skills and knowledge they need to make and implement healthy food choices and to be comfortable and confident in a kitchen.
Learning maps – At MHS we use learning maps to support retrieval and reinforcement of knowledge. We use these in class and as homework, you may find it useful to see what is coming up through the year for your child in their year group. We are continuing to develop these and update them through the year so you may notice some subjects have uploaded the first term, future work will be added at the appropriate time.
