Design and Technology (DT) is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject, which prepares all young people to live and work in the designed and made world. 



Cooking and nutrition

As part of their work with food, pupils should be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Instilling a love of cooking in pupils will also open a door to one of the great expressions of human creativity. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.

Pupils should be taught to:

Key Stage 1

Key Stage 2

  • use the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare dishes
  • understand where food comes from
  • understand and apply the principles of a healthy and varied diet
  • prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques
  • understand seasonality, and know where and how a variety of ingredients are grown, reared, caught and processed.

DT projects are often linked to topics. 

Here are some shadufs made by Year 3 during their Ancient Egypt topic.




We have worked with businesses in the community, such as Tesco and Pizza Express, to enhance our cookery knowledge and experiences.
