Classroom-Based Assessment: My healthy meal
This Classroom-Based Assessment is the culmination of the work undertaken in the four strands of the Food, glorious food short course. The Classroom-Based Assessment should begin after work in the four strands has been completed.
The Classroom-Based Assessment will provide an opportunity for the student to demonstrate the skills that they have learned about healthy eating and drinking. The assessment will engage the student using practical life skills which they have developed. They will be required to plan, prepare and make a meal for themselves or another/others. They will need to demonstrate an awareness of safety and hygiene around food storage and preparation. The title is open to interpretation based on the student’s individual ability, strengths and needs.
