FTE6

Food and Nutrition - NCEA Level 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Thomas

In Food and Nutrition students develop an understanding of the factors that influence the well-being of individuals and families within the home and community and of the actions people take to enhance and sustain those environments.

The following areas of study will be covered in this course:
Demonstrate knowledge of practices and strategies to address food handling issues
Demonstrate knowledge of an individual’s nutritional needs
Describe understanding of societal influences on an individual’s food choices and well-being
Demonstrate understanding of how packaging information influences an individual’s food choices and well-being

Course Overview

Term 1
Students will be learning about food safety measures and practices and strategies to address food handling issues. Later they will be assessed in a practical kitchen setting and by sitting a two-task theory assessment working from their study notes, in order to achieve 5 NCEA Level One credits for Achievement Standard 90959: Demonstrate knowledge of practices and strategies to address food handling issues. These five credits count toward the requisite 10 Literacy credits needed as part of NCEA Level One.

Term 2
Students will be learning about the nutritional needs of an individual and how to plan a day's menu in order to meet all of their recommended daily intake for each food group. There is a strong focus on examining our relationship to food beyond the physical nutrients in order to meet all of the four dimensions of Hauora (holistic well-being) in this unit: Physical, Emotional/Mental, Social and Spiritual. Later the students will be assessed in a practical kitchen setting and by sitting a multi-task theory assessment working from their study notes, in order to achieve 5 NCEA Level One credits for Achievement Standard 90956. Demonstrate knowledge of an individual's nutritional needs.

Re-submission opportunities: students will have the opportunity to resubmit work in most cases (time-dependent for practical assessments) in consultation with classroom teacher and/or Head of Department.

Term 3
Students will be learning how consumers are influenced in their food choices on both societal and interpersonal levels. Toward the end of the term they will be assessed by sitting a multi-task theory assessment working from their study notes, in order to achieve 5 NCEA Level One credits for Achievement Standard 90957: Demonstrate understanding of societal influences on an individual's food choices and well-being. These five credits count toward the requisite 10 Literacy credits needed as part of NCEA Level One.

Re-submission opportunities: students will have the opportunity to resubmit work in most cases (time-dependent for practical assessments) in consultation with classroom teacher and/or Head of Department.

Term 4
During Term 4, students will be preparing for their External Assessment, Achievement Standard 90961: Demonstrate understanding of how packaging information influences an individual’s food choices and well-being, which is worth 4 NCEA Level One credits.
