Unit 1: Me in The Kitchen 1 - All year 7 groups became introduced to the food technology room. They explored the importance of all the health and safety preparations that need to be conducted before handling food. They began to use basic equipment and explored the different parts of a recipe and demonstrated how to follow a recipe to produce a finished dish. All year 7 pupils can now distinguish between gas and electric hobs and can safely turn on and use a hob correctly.
