Overview:

Students in Year 10 have 3 Food lessons each week. Two of these form a double lesson.

Students will receive one piece of Food homework weekly which should last up to an hour.
Homework can consist of research and presentation preparation, sensory analysis and evaluation writing or exam questions.

    Assessments:

    Year 10 students sit end of unit assessments and in the summer term students will sit an internal End of Year exam.

    Practical work is assessed through teacher observations throughout every lesson in relation to a set of GCSE objectives. Verbal feedback during lessons forms a significant portion of student assessment
