Resources

Cookery is taught to all Year 7 students at Carre’s in the fabulous Nutrition Suite. The purpose-built room, situated on the first floor above the Fitness Suite, is very well-appointed with modern gas and electric ovens, stainless steel work units, a full range of equipment and ample refrigerator space.

Scheme of work

Students have a one-hour cookery lesson each week. They make a range of dishes to develop home cooking skills and also learn about food safety & hygiene, nutrition & healthy eating and develop their consumer awareness.

The cultural importance of food is also acknowledged; previously students have celebrated events such as British Food Fortnight and Chinese New Year.
