A healthy lunch-bot in a healthy living week

Heatherside Junior School kindly hosted us during their Healthy Living week, and loved running a morning session for the Year 3s about how to make a healthy lunch box!


As ever, Al the Robot was programmed to help us get the lunch boxes packed, as as usual, it wasn't without the usual mix ups and debugging to get things right. The question was, could we get enough lunchboxes made in time......


Afterwards the children loved the activities, which included choosing healthy snacks with the beebots, and creating a computer game programmed in scratch with Al the Robot collecting healthy items from a conveyor belt.


Also many thanks to social enterprise, 'I Know Why It's Yum, Mum' for providing the data from their Healthy Eating Top Trumps for our activities. You can find out about them on www.iknowwhyitsyummum.com.
