Food Technology

Food technology at Oak Lodge School is delivered as an interdisciplinary subject that combines knowledge of chemistry, biology, technology, physics and geography. Pupils develop their English and Maths skills through exploration of different types of food and dishes, from various regions of the world. They learn about the natural processes of living things that humans source from our planet.

During cooking lessons our pupils gain skills on a practical level, that also takes them on a some scientific discoveries. They learn about the basic characteristics of substances and the ways in which they react or combine and about effects that they have on each other. Pupils develop their interpersonal skills. They improve ability to communicate with people and the ability to make accurate and quick decisions.
