Designing and Making with Food at Key Stage One

From the Nuffield Foundation, these activities challenge children to make and prepare toast to customers' specifications.

This task allows children to:
* explore the different types of bread that can be toasted
* find out people's preferences for this common food
* think about when and how toast is used as a food
* investigate what happens when bread is toasted
* explore the different ways toasted bread can be served
* write or draw a specification for toast prepared in a particular way for someone in their family, make toast to that specification, and evaluate it.

In the project children will learn:
• to identify and analyse consumer preferences
• to experiment with different breads, toasting times and spreads
• to make butter
• to prepare food to particular specification
• to evaluate a food product
