Food and wellbeing: Foundation to Year 2

Explore content

Students bring to school a wide range of experiences, abilities, needs and interests. They have a natural curiosity about their world and begin to develop awareness and respect for each other.

Foundation – Year 2 students explore and investigate technologies including their purpose and how they meet personal and social needs within local settings. Students develop an understanding of how societal factors influence decisions relating to food, nutrition, health and wellbeing. They begin to consider the impact of their decisions on their own and others’ health and wellbeing.

By the end of Year 2, students will have had the opportunity to create designed solutions at least once in Design and Technologies for the food and fibre production and food specialisations technologies context. Students identify safety issues and learn to follow simple safety rules when producing designed solutions, such as when selecting, preparing and sharing food for healthy eating.
