Key Stage 3
Key Stage 4
In year 9, the pupils continue to
develop the skills that they have learnt in KS3. During the autumn term they
make different varieties of bread, in the spring and summer terms they continue
to develop their knowledge of healthy foods and a balanced diet looking at
healthy breakfasts and packed lunches. At the end of Year 9 the students decide
which course in technology they would like to follow in Years 10 and 11.
Years 10 and 11
Pupils that continue to attend Food Technology follow the Jamie Oliver Home Cooking Skills BTEC course. The course encourages pupils to cook from scratch using basic ingredients and to then share their knowledge with friends and family. The pupils will learn about healthy eating and diet, how to economise in the kitchen and during this time they will continue to develop their skills and knowledge. Information about the course can be found at the following web address http://www.jamieshomecookingskills.com/During their time at Brook Green Centre for Learning many of the students take part in catering for events that are held within the school such as Christmas dinner, Fetes, catering for visitors, and the Year 11 leavers ceremony.
