DT projects KS2 – Explore the difference between white and wholemeal flour

Key Stage



Years 3-6

Explore the difference between white and wholemeal flour and then do a taste comparison.

Learning how to cook is a vital skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others well, now and in later life. In this lesson, pupils will learn that simple ingredient substitutions can make a big difference, and that we have a choice.

They will learn that, in some recipes, more nutritious wholemeal flour can be used instead of white flour. As there is cooking involved, the practical part of this lesson might be better suited to working in small groups, depending on your class, space and facilities.

What they’ll learn

  • About different types of flour
  • Difference between wholemeal and white flour
  • Benefits of using wholemeal
  • White and wholemeal flour can be used in many recipes
