Design Technology

Vocabulary: groceries, processed, preparation, delicatessens, fishmonger, artificial ingredients, organic, genetically modified.


This term we will learn about processed food, including minimally processed and ultra-processed foods. After analysing food labelling and discussing their effectiveness, we will compare processed and homemade bread.

The children will learn about whole and organic foods and their advantages and disadvantages.  We will make pasta sauces using whole food ingredients and a range of preparation techniques practiced in previous projects.

After designing a healthy daily menu for an 11-year-old child that meets a set of design criteria, we will be preparing one of the meals.  At the end of the project, we will taste and evaluate our peers’ dishes, modifying them if needed.
