The year will be divided into two topics.

For the first half of the year we will design and make a food product to sell in a school canteen. We will run a canteen day as part of this assessment.

Then we will explore basic baking techniques, developing our practical skills by making butter cake.

There will be an optional external standard.

Students can achieve 18 to 22 credits over the year
