Home Economics in Close-up
Learning for Life and Work
By Laura McGreevy
This resource covers the theory for all three years of Home Economics at Key Stage 3. Written in a clear and engaging style, this book is student-friendly, illustrated in full colour and packed full of visual aids.
The content addresses:
- all of the Statutory Requirements outlined by the Northern Ireland Curriculum
- the Cross-curricular Skills, Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities required by the Northern Ireland Curriculum
- the Core Competences identified by the British Nutrition Foundation, Food Standards Agency and Public Health England
Arranged in a logical manner, the text covers the 3 Key Concepts of Healthy Eating, Home and Family Life, and Independent Living in order.
These concepts are divided into individual units, which each explore a different topic and contain activities appropriate for a range of ages and abilities. The stand-alone nature of each unit means that teachers can choose the most appropriate order to progress through material during the course of the three years.
All the topics covered are up-to-date and incorporate current legislation, facts and figures. Examples include:
• The eatwell plate
• Online shopping
• Food allergies and intolerances
• Family life
This resource is specifically designed as a building block for both the CCEA Entry Level and CCEA GCSE courses.
