AQA year 10 Food Technology

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by Helly Bells, Aug 24, 2009.

  1. Hello everyone,
    I am starting my first post next week as a Food Teacher (although I trained to teach both food and textiles I am more of a textiles specialist as that is what my degree is in). I have been busy preparing all my resources and am now set up at KS3.
    I am however worried and starting to panic about the prospect of teaching year 10 as the school have no existing projects in place and limited resources. I need to create a scheme of work and resources for year 10 and was wondering if anyone can give me ideas on what things they are covering in their scheme or if anyone can send me a copy of their own.
    I would be grateful of any help!! [​IMG]
    Thankyou, Helen

  3. Hi Helen
    Have you got a copy of the new aqa spec? Included is a sample scheme which just needs padding out. I have written the first unit of 15 lessons based on cake making which I will email to you. Hope it is helpful

  4. Hi Jane,
    Yes, I have got a copy of the new AQA spec and found the scheme of work on their website today. Thankyou for the email and the unit you sent - i appreciate it a lot. Are you planning to use all of the units recommended in the AQA scheme then? I will do the same I think as it has provided me with some structure already rather than going into the complete unknown!!
    Thanks, Helen
     
  5. Hi Jane, would you be able to send me your sow too? I'd be extremly grateful!
    Helen, I have a hand written sow left by previous teacher, although it was used to teach the old AQA spec I'm sure it's all relevant. I can scan for you. If you have any other sow of work could you send me a copy?
    Thanks x

  6. Hi Jane
    I too would be most grateful for a copy of the first unit! I'm just about to get back into the food room after 4 yrs elsewhere in tech and having spent the summer writing up 7,8 and 9 (my colleague in food has failed to leave any schemes anywhere!) I would really like a bit of help for Y10 :O)
    Cheers in advance, Feebe

  7. Hi,
    I'd really aprreciate a scanned copy of the sow you mentioned. The school I am starting at have nothing and when I asked what they do with year 10 they just said ' projects to prepare them for year 11'!! - not very helpful! I don't have any existing schemes for year 10 to send you, have only done KS3.
    Thanks, Helen
     
  8. would you also email me with your cake module. Would appreciate someone elses perspective on what to include in lessons.
    regards

  9. I would also love a copy to look at for ideas if you don't mind. Am getting a bit brain dead from all the others I've been writing for the team. Cheers.

    Hi Jane/ Helen
    I would also appreciate a copy of the units on cake making. This would surely help me out for the first term as I will be teaching Food Tech for the first time. Thanks.

  15. Hi Helen
    I am in a similar situation as you but I have no information from the previous teacher. I am waiting for a delivery of AQA GCSE Design and Technology: Food Technology (Aqa Gcse Design & Technology) which was released this year to support the new scheme of work, I will let you know if it is any good.
    Can you send me any information that you thing might be useful, I am struggling with lesson plans for KS4. Can you also send me the cake making 15 lesson plans so that I can have a look at it to see if I have taken the right approach.

    email davrich2us@yahoo.com

    Thanks
