Introduction to Technology at Harris Academy Morden
In Technology at Harris Academy Morden, lessons are focussed around developing everyday life skills to promote a ‘pro-food’ ethos in students. The aim is to increase awareness of the integral part that food plays in children’s health, well-being and attainment. Lessons are designed to motivate change in behaviours towards food, such as exposure to different types of ingredients and dishes to encourage healthy eating. Technology is an inspiring and practical subject that has a strong focus on designing, making and solving real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Students acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science and art. Students learn how to cook so that they are capable of feeding themselves and others affordably and nutritiously; now and in later life. This knowledge enables students to take risks, become resourceful, innovative, and be enterprising and capable citizens.
