Year 10 Food Technology

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Webster

The Year 10 Food Technology course builds on the basic skills and knowledge gained in Year 9.  The course considers what "good" nutrition is, and investigates National Nutritional Guidelines, food groups and the importance of nutrients in our diet.  This forms the  foundation for Year 11.

Students will  further explore the technology process by interpeting a brief,  then  planning and designing a product.    Students will  build on  practical and organisational skills they gained in Year 9.

Students will learn to:

  • Investigate food groups and the nutrients that are available in each group
  • Broaden knowledge of nutrients that need to be supplied by the diet and their importance
  • Demonstrate safe working practices when using equipment and food.
  • Personal and preparation hygiene practices
  • Design and develop a food product
  • Sensory evaluation
