This subject is part of the Design and Technology faculty which encompasses a variety of disciplines all providing exciting opportunities for our students. This enables them to gain vital skills, knowledge and understanding that will not only equip them for forthcoming examinations but also life beyond the classroom
In technology, students will have the opportunity to experience two subject areas throughout year 9. Due to recent changes in Design and Technology and increased content at GCSE, the importance to prepare students for years 10 and 11 is greater than ever. Our intention is to teach content from our KS4 technology specifications, which will give our students a realistic experience of what it would be like to take a technology subject as an option in years 10 and 11. We would like to give our students the opportunity to choose two subject areas they would prefer to focus on though out the year. The three subject areas to choose from are;
- Fashion and Textiles
- Product Design – (Resistant Materials Technology)
- Food and Nutrition
The Food Module - Healthy Eating for Teenagers - teaches students a range of basic practical cookery skills, alongside the theoretical concepts of healthy eating. Practicals at the moment include coleslaw, fruit salad, jalousie, plate fruit pie or apple crumble, mince dish, swiss roll, and bread based pizza.
