Unit 1: World Foods 1 - Pupils began a series that spans over the year looking and the food from different countries. The first part of this topic focused on the cuisine we recognise as 'typically' British. Following on from this, pupils research and explore the foods that come from Italy.

From the research they conducted and the skills that they learn they will produce a cheese and onion pie using their own pastry, and a bolognaise sauce to accompany their homemade pasta.

Through a Design and Make activity pupils learn key concepts and skills in order to design for a client and produce a prototype


Unit 2: Design and Make a Scandinavian Stocking - This unit is a 'design and make' activity that is textiles based.

Pupils work through the design process to create their own Christmas stocking to take home. In order to realize their design ideas, they develop their skills at cutting out fabric, pinning and tacking fabric pieces together and using the sewing machine competently to stitch together a seam.
