In Design and Technology over the last few weeks, we've been learning all about the following: 

-    Measure out, cut, shape and combine e.g. knead, beat, rub and mix ingredients. 
-    Use appropriate utensils and equipment and use safely and hygienically. 
-    Follow a basic recipe to prepare and cook a savoury food product. 
-    Explore adapting texture, taste and appearance of recipes, e.g. which ingredients could be changed or added in a basic recipe such as types of flour, seeds, garlic,  vegetables.


Our challenge was to Design, make and evaluate a savoury pizza (product) for ourselves (user) for a celebration (purpose).


This week, we enjoyed making our pizzas and they tasted delicious! 

Here are some photos of us making our pizzas.

This week, in our values and attitudes session, we we're choosing a team to send on a space mission.

First, we looked at the photos of different people and made our decisions.

Then, we used separate cards of the same people and looked at the strengths, weaknesses and qualifications of the people to see if it changed our opinions of who we would take.
