FFL virtual practical workshop – Shorter lessons, practical food skills and learning intent (Dec)

Are your lessons 1 hour or less? Do your pupils struggle to get finished by the end of the lesson? Find out some tried and tested ideas for managing shorter practical lessons.

Description

Please note that this practical workshop is a repeat of the workshop taking place on 9 October 2021.

Are your lessons 1 hour or less? Do your pupils struggle to get finished by the end of the lesson? Are you sometimes left with piles of washing up to do? Do you have to take cooked dishes out of the oven when pupils have moved onto the next lesson?

Join Roy and Frances for a morning of practical activity with a focus on shorter lessons, practical food skills and learning intent. Find out some tried and tested ideas for managing practical lessons whilst ensuring that pupils acquire, develop and secure key practical food skills and create a good quality dish. Practise your own food skills too!

The training will be conducted virtually from Roy’s and Frances’ kitchens – we hope you can join them. You will need space in your kitchen to undertake the practical work, as well as a tablet/laptop (which has a webcam) so that everyone can see you too. Full details will be provided.

As this training is being held virtually, you will need to provide your own ingredients, for all those that attend and complete the session, a £10 gift-voucher will be given to you to help with the cost.

Priority will be given to trainee, new, less experienced and non-specialist secondary food teachers. Teaching assistants and higher-level teaching assistants are also welcome to attend.  Spaces are limited to a maximum of 20, so please only book to attend if you fall into one of these categories.
