We are pleased to confirm that the practical food room, which enables students opportunities to learn essential life-skills in the preparation and creation of nutritional meals, continues to operate this term. In order for students to access this invaluable experience, we require full participation from students and that they are equipped with their ingredients on the right day. It is very difficult for staff to oversee the practical and support the children cooking if a number of students sit out the practical experience. If a child repeatedly misses sessions this can lead to a lack of confidence overtime in the students approach and a lower skill set.
We currently set practical lesson days and ingredients via ClassCharts and Google Classroom, but already this week we have seen some students unable to access these valuable and enjoyable lessons because they were not equipped with ingredients. Food practical lessons are mandatory and non-participation will, unfortunately, result in detention. If there is a legitimate reason you are unable to provide ingredients please feel free to contact your child’s Food Technology teacher and we will do what we can to support you. This needs to be a full day before the lesson so we can make arrangements.
Please refer to the table below to see when your child is required to bring in ingredients to participate in a practical lesson. It could save you preparing a meal that evening and give your child the opportunity on occasions to cook for you. An ingredients list for each recipe is also provided with this letter.
